What's happening this week:
Political Education Training: WHERE’S THE FIGHT? Connecting Organizing around Relief at Local, State and Federal Levels
We are all working hard to get our communities the support we need to weather the many crises we are facing today. We have made real gains, winning unprecedented relief packages, but we all know that our people need more to combat the economic, health, racial, and political disparities we face. This session will give us some tools to think about connecting the campaigns we are running at the local and state levels to the federal level fight. We’ll talk about the relief packages that have passed so far. We’ll dig into the relationship between federal and state funding to help us strategize about the role of federal-level fights in the coming months.
