Organizing and Advocacy
“Every moment is an organizing opportunity, every person a potential activist, every minute a chance to change the world. - Dolores Huerta
Our organizing and advocacy programming draws inspiration from generations of people who worked to bend the arc of history toward justice. We will connect and learn from organizers and advocates who work every single day to change unjust systems, build power for positive change, and advocate for policies that move us toward a more just, equitable, and sustainable world.
