Here is a follow up from the most recent PVP meeting:
- We are continuing to move forward on campaigns related to housing, the opioid crisis and more. We are forming teams for each of these campaigns which will drive campaign research, strategy and lead mobilization as needed. Please get in touch if you would like to join a campaign committee!
- We are asking for delegates from every member organization to attend PVP monthly meetings. This can be from 1-3 people who act as the liaison(s) between PVP and their organization. Delegates can receive training for their role if requested. It’s really important that all of our member groups are at the table as we determine our direction.
- We will be forming a Racial Justice Book Group in April! The book is “So You Want to Talk About Race,” by Ijeoma Oluo. The group is open to all PVP members and discussions will be facilitated. Please get in touch if you would like to participate!
