Is it Winnable?
Is it winnable? This is a fundamental question that any good to community organizing effort asks before cutting an issue. Thanks be to the housing task force for answering with a confident yes for the “vote yes for kids” which passed this month! Additionally thanks be to the Kalamazoo Community Foundation for the important recognition as a leader in the work towards antiracism in Kalamazoo at the community wide meeting featuring Ta-Nehisa Coates. So ISAAC – let us own these victories, live in the joy of these victories, and allow this energy to carry us in to the work that lies ahead of us. May we continue to build a legacy of victory and integrity as we begin to draw to a close certain areas of work and turn our attention towards new issues. Grace and peace be with all those who work for justice.
