Last year, Kirk and Heather sang together in solidarity with each other to face karaoke fears. Kirk reconnected with his air guitar days, and Heather wore a wig.
We're returning to the stage to sing in memory of our friend Steve and in honor of the political home that brought us all together. This year especially, its felt like through wins and losses, strategy and day to day work, what matters most and builds our power together is the way we care for each other as people. Steve understood the need for that - whether it was hosting meetings in his backyard, bringing homemade food to meetings, sharing extra produce from his garden, being the first to arrive and last to leave at potlucks, we learned a lot from the way that he prioritized that part of our work together.
As members of the board, we know that while there's lots of magic floating around the workers' center, we can't rely on magic for fundraising. Grassroots fundraising like this campaign gives us independence and freedom to pursue the work that is most needed by our members and in our community, and we're personally committed to making that happen.
Thank you so much for any support you can give us for this scrappy organization that we love so much!
