On Tuesday evening, over a dozen Together Because leaders met to drink wine and strategize over the future of the organization, including planning our May 21st orientation!
It is so important to carve out space and time for different people to meet and discuss the values they share while making decisions together on how to actualize those values. That's what Tuesday night's meeting was: a needed opportunity to relate, educate, and strategize. We also had several new people who had never been to a meeting before!
After sharing with one another what we each hope to get from this organization, we saw that our priorities are: community and action. We agreed that we need to do what we can as a team to continue growing and meeting new people interested in building with us!
While right now we are focusing on our orientation this weekend, we look forward to a summer of canvassing, casual social events, dynamic trainings, and strategizing among peers!
