Organized Anti-Police Protest in Sept 2017

Kayla Reed was identified as an "organizer" of protests that turned violent in the St. Louis suburb of University City after a police officer was found innocent of murder after shooting a heroin dealer who engaged police in a high speed chase.[5]

"I don't think racism is going to change in America until people get uncomfortable," protest organizer Kayla Reed of the St. Louis Action Council told The Associated Press.

Beyond Bernie

Beyond Bernie: Electoral Strategy for an Independent Left

April 2019 Organizing Upgrade pulled together leaders and activists from many of the most important movements of the left electoral upsurge to discuss both short- and long-term electoral strategy. The recent resurgence of electoral engagement amongst the social movement and party left in the US is inspiring and full of potential, but still lacks a shared strategy across the groups leading the charge. Moving past the mainstream media focus on the presidential horserace, we talk to organizers on the front lines about the current state of this movement sector, and critical interventions that independent left organizers can make to move this work forward.

The strategy session included*:

The discussion was moderated by Rishi Awatramani and Linda Burnham.[10]
