Join us on February 8th for our first community meeting of the year! Our agenda is partially celebratory but we will also be looking ahead. We are excited to host several of our endorsed and newly elected City Councilors: Julia Mejia, Ruthzee Louijeune, and Kendra Lara (formerly Hicks).
We are also excited to hear a recap on last year’s redistricting process from Jordan Berg Powers and Roberto Jimenez from the Drawing Democracy Coalition where they will share their experience of the process and lend insights on what our newly drawn districts mean for both JP and the progressive movement more broadly.
And we will look ahead at the 2022 election season – alas, there is no rest for the weary – we have a full plate of contested seats from 15th Suffolk (State Representative) to 2nd Suffolk (state Senate) to Governor to Suffolk County District Attorney where we hope to elect another progressive to fill Rachael’s seat. It will be great to hear your feedback on learnings from the 2021 cycle, how we can improve our process, and how we can better partner with other POC-led, immigrant, and working class led organizations across the city in the upcoming cycle.
