Please join a committee meeting this month!

I hope you had a great holiday season and got the chance to watch Governor Mills’ inauguration on Wednesday! If you missed it, you can watch the full video here.

Since the holidays have just wrapped up, and the busy times of the political season are just beginning, we won’t be holding our monthly general meeting this month. The next monthly meeting will be on Thursday, February 21st at East End Community Center.
While we won’t be holding a full meeting this month, please consider joining one or both of the following committee meetings.
  • Issues Committee, in charge of turning our platform into policy. Right now, the main focus is on voter rights & access. We will meet on Thursday, January 16, 7 – 8 pm at 148 Noyes Street. Please RSVP here.
  • Organizing Committee, in charge of building grassroots infrastructure, meets Monday, January 14, 6-7 pm at East End Community Center. Please RSVP here.
