Join the 12th District for our first annual day long summit to connect + engage with other community activists/groups. You are invited to join a day of learning, training, and momentum building for the 2018 election.
The day long events will include training sessions on how to improve group effectiveness through improved messaging, canvassing and recruitment and retention. Breakout sessions will afford the opportunity for each group to discuss their activities and issues while learning about the work of other activist organizations in the district. The plan is to convene a meeting toward the end of the day of representatives of each organization to discuss how to better coordinate district activities as we move toward the all-important mid-term elections in November. The hope is to hold a second summit in September more focused on mobilizing for the Fall elections. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. We have invited a prominent speaker for a lunch time talk. Below is a summary of key points.
