Top-down doesn’t work. We need people power to win, and people power only happens when we work to empower everyone.
I promise that if you come to me and tell me that your neighborhood isn’t getting the right resources, I will commit to working alongside you to change that. I won’t tell you it’s not my job, I won’t tell you to do it yourself, I’ll get it done with you.
I will commit to an expand our Neighborhood Organizer program by ensuring that our NO’s have all the training, material, and support they need to connect with their neighbors about the issues that matter most to us.
I will NEVER wait for someone in charge to tell us what to do. I will ensure that we are always working and always ready to work.
