CP April Workshop: Recap
WELCOME — Another CP Workshop, another Community Building session led by the Audreys (Audrey Musewe + Audrey Vaughan), this time continuing a theme of personal and mental work each of us navigate when taking civic action: Courage & Risk.
CIVIC MODULE — David Domke put on his favorite “hat”, one of the professor, and walked everyone through a light civic module focusing on voter suppression in America. Amy Sommers tied this to current events, specifically in Florida with the continued disenfranchisement efforts of citizens who’s voting rights have been recently restored. Being Common Purpose, there was also an element of how we’re planning to affect positive change in Florida later this year.
FIELDWORK UPDATES — Charles Douglas III brought us a message about fighting and losing, and fighting again in Wisconsin after the defeat of Lisa Neubauer in the State Supreme Court race. In this imperfect world, even the most noble efforts find failure. And still we persist…. Maggie Rittenhouse was joined by Audrey Musewe to introduce Maggie as a new leader as well as a new more comprehensive approach to our operations and relationships in Virginia.
WASHINGTON ACCOUNTABILITY — Jamielyn Wheeler updated everyone on the progress of efforts here in Washington State, and highlighted a few community members who then spoke about their own individual and team efforts during the recent legislative session.
JOIN US NEXT MONTH FOR THE MAY WORKSHOP! SATURDAY, MAY 18TH AT WASHINGTON HALL!
