Turn up and let’s build together a powerful caucus block that centers immigration and education justice. As a multi racial, multi-ethnic, multi status community, we need to build power that reflect the many identities of broader immigrant and refugee community.
Everyone regardless of immigration status should be allowed to vote in a precinct caucus, but that is not the case.
There are many impacted that will be excluded from making decisions that affect their lives. This caucus training is focused on leveraging exactly that.
We want everyone to come to this training, regardless of documentation. The needs of immigrants and refugees should direct how we participate at this year’s caucuses. This is a big election year, and big changes are needed.
This will be my first time participating and I know that I have to vote and act, not in my personal interest, but the interest of those that have been intentionally excluded.
Join me and our neighbors to help determine if the government will reflect our progressive values and visions. Caucus night is the first step in electing a governor, congress people, state representative, city council and park board. Caucuses can be an insider process and without a presidential election, turnout is likely to be low. By showing up prepared for this process, we can ensure that city politics reflects our values.
We will cover the basic caucus process, how delegates get selected, and how to introduce resolutions key issues.
