Dawn: Well, the good news is that we are made up of more than 25 organisations on our steering committee, and we make use of all of them. Some of them have huge memberships and grassroots reach, some of them have really good digital memberships and social media impact.
Some of them do organising with workers, with small businesses, with different constituencies, with labour.. and we’re basically trying to harness all of that as much as possible to keep it all organised and coordinated, and brought to bare in this important moment.
I think that it’s been a massive effort , particularly in a pandemic when we don’t have the usual tools and the usual organising methods, that so much has to be virtual and remote. But that also is an opportunity that we try to rise to; try to be really creative and think about new ways to find people and reach people, new ways of using media and communications.
For us we think of it as enormous challenge and opportunity for organising and communications, and focusing all of the work that our partners and our members are doing to make sure that we are reinforcing to this administration and to congress that this can be done, finally…and it must be done.
