Last night we saw another meeting of truly tremendous organizing at our second #GetOrganizedBK gathering. More than 700 people got busy in 15 breakout groups. Standing in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors. Electoral organizing. Fighting Trump Administration corruption and conflicts-of-interest. And many more.
The smarts, strategy, and willingness to roll-up-sleeves in our community is powerful. People have continuously dived right in, facilitated, started making action plans, and committed themselves to this cause. It's clear that passionate, moral, urgent organizing to resist the Trump regime has the potential to engage like nothing since the civil rights and anti-war movements.
Big thank you to Council Member Carlos Menchaca, Assembly Member-elect Robert Carroll, Rabbi Rachel Timoner and Congregation Beth Elohim, Rabbi Ellen Lippman, Mark Winston Griffith, and so many people who stepped up as leaders both last night, and for the long haul.
We’ll follow up with more specifics from last night’s meeting soon, including reports from all the different committees, but in the meantime we’re going social! To follow up on the work of the first two #GetOrganizedBK meetings and to stay on top of upcoming actions and events join the newly lauched #GetOrganizedBK Facebook group (and invite your friends to join as well). We want it to be a hub for individuals, activists, organizations and community leaders to join together in our resistance.
We’re also hard at work planning our next meeting. I hope you’ll be able to join us on the evening of Tuesday, December 20th for our 3rd #GetOrganizedBK meeting:
