Candidates, Campaigns & Elections
We are so proud and grateful for all of you, the tenacious candidates and the dauntless campaign volunteers. Part of what oppressive systems perpetuate is the belief that we don’t have any power. while also dividing us. Shake it off. We have successfully challenged the ubiquitous ways that these systems sustain inequity and apathy - by creating a sense of belonging, and establishing a collective responsibility rooted in love.
Team, as we settle into the new leadership, new challenges and new opportunities. we see value in reflection of all that has transpired. #PowerUP! has fulfilled its mission of being a platform for new ideas, new candidates and for newly engaged community members. We are immeasurably proud of the progress, but this is a beginning -not an end. Electing ONE or five solid candidates, does not change the system or reconfigure the power structure. We need to multi-task: dismantle, reimagine, rebuild, vote and mentor a new pipeline of candidates!
The Town's timeline is below. PowerUP! hosts Community Conversation Events around each deliverable.
