After months of planning and organizing, we are proud to say that our first major city-wide Together Because meeting and celebration was a big success!
In total, we had 57 people join us for breakout sessions around topics such as: Gentrification, the Federal Government, Privilege and Social Justice, and Researching Local Representatives. So many incredible new projects and working groups came out of these groups and we are really excited to see what kind of new leadership develops to push these goals forward!
After our meeting, we had a mountain of pizzas delivered and enjoyed an open bar while Cedric "DJ C-Kaos" Smith played some dope jams!
Next, these new projects and working groups will meet on their own in order to organically develop their own plans of action while receiving TBC support in the form of custom trainings, funding, new recruits, and targeted research. It is from this decentralized work that our next city-wide meeting on April 15th will form!
