Had a great first post-election meeting for Raza Unida. We decided to begin having "Join the Party Parties" and the first is January 17, 2009 at 5:30.
We have a great communications team and an awesome voter registration team. There are three of us thinking about running for offices and the whole group was willing to work on a campaign.
The website and the literature need to be redone and the communications team will be dealing with that.
We talked about presenting our values comprehensively and working for people power moving beyond one issue at a time politics. I'm excited because it was clear to all of us in the room that voting out W means nothing if people aren't willing to get involved and hold government accountable to protect and empower people to have safe, healthy and thriving lives!
