Seed the Vote
Early voting is already underway: Election Day is every day from now until Nov. 3. Seed the Vote has activists on the (virtual) ground seven days a week in swing states, and soon will add in-person crews as well. Partnering with organizations rooted in working-class communities and communities of color, Seed the Vote aims to build connections and capacities that will last past November, while pitching in on the all-important fight to defeat Trump. Its thinking is both granular and global. Coordinating Committee member Le Tim Ly:
- “There’s this question of what we do inside the empire: What is our responsibility to movements and people around the world to create the best possible conditions for our side to win? Seeing the work of defeating Trump in that context is important, to check our privileges and not let down our responsibility to the most targeted and vulnerable in our communities, to the generations who come after us and to the work that’s happening across the world to combat neoliberal fascism and support people’s struggles.”
Build the Wheel
Build the Wheel is a collaborative initiative, supported by the Center for Empowered Politics Education Fund at the Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), to help strengthen community empowerment efforts across the country. Buildthewheel.org is being designed as an online clearinghouse of workshops and trainings where staff and community leaders from diverse organizations, neighborhoods, cities and issue areas can come together to share and build upon each others’ practice, experiences and learning in popular political education and leadership development. This is a space where community leaders and organizations seeking to affect policy change through community organizing and civic participation strategies will gain access to tools, curricula and resources to more effectively educate ourselves and the community constituents, members and leaders we work with.
Content Partners and Contributors have included Californians for Justice, the Movement Strategy Center, the Chinese Progressive Association (San Francisco), People Organizing to Demand Environmental and Economic Rights (PODER), Mobilize the Immigrant Vote, the Partnership for Immigrant Leadership and Action (PILA), the Data Center, the School of Unity and Liberation (SOUL), Western States Center, DiversityWorks, United for a Fair Economy, the California Fund for Youth Organizing, Tierra Viva, and many more. If you or your organization would like to contribute your curriculum and resources, please contact us. Let’s stop reinventing and start building!

I esp liked Vickie Alexander & Cathi Tactaquin 's reflections on their movement work. Cathy, reflecting on her 45+ years, incl from '73-87 with KDP (Union of Democratic Filipinos) to her urgent life/death work with global migrants and refugees through the NNIRR, urged us to strive to: 1) serve the people; 2) practice a 'mass line' (from the masses, to the masses); and 3) support mass-based grassroots organizing groups because of the inherent political limitations of 501c3 non-profit groups. — with Catherine Tactaquin, Le Tim Ly and Vicki Alexander at Hilton Oakland Airport Hotel.
Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward
Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward was a phone in webinar organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization in the wake of the 2016 election.
- Now what? We’re all asking ourselves that question in the wake of Trump’s victory. We’ve got urgent strategizing and work to do, together. Join Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson of the Movement for Black Lives and Freedom Road, Calvin Cheung-Miaw, Jodeen Olguin-Taylor of Mijente and WFP, Joe Schwartz of the Democratic Socialists of America, and Sendolo Diaminah of Freedom Road for a discussion of what happened, and what we should be doing to build mass defiance. And above all, how do we build the Left in this, which we know is the only solution to the crises we face?
- This event will take place Tuesday November 15, 2016 at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central/6pm Pacific.
Those invited, on Facebook included Le Tim Ly.
