December 2022 Meeting of the Whole CANCELED

WeROC Family and Friends,

Thanks to everyone who participated in the  hard work during the recent election cycle.   As we pivot as an organization toward a new, even more powerful phase in WeROC’s ten-year life, the Leadership Team is cancelling the December Meeting of the Whole due conflicting schedules.  We encourage all of our members and friends to join us this month in reflecting on how we can together leverage the collective bottom-up power we are building in our County to respond to the new social and political landscape created during this election season by so many new voters (thank you especially young people and women of all ages!).

As our Leadership Team works this month to develop proposed plans for 2023, we welcome any ideas you may have for WeROC going forward, and we look forward to hitting the ground running at our Thursday January 5th Meeting of the Whole.  (We may be able to try an in-person meeting again…stay tuned, and keep checking the website at werocmi.org for emerging information about WeROC.)

Finally, we are deeply grateful (really, and not just for this holiday!) for the flurry of new memberships — if you haven’t yet, please consider going to the DONATE button at werocmi.org and pay for formal membership (indicate in the comment section that your donation is for membership.)

Appreciate all of you as we move forward together…Let’s build on the momentum of our Friend/Fundraiser and the changes brought by the elections and discern our best steps forward.  Happiest of Holidays to all of you and yours!

At a time when it seems we’re facing new crises every day, at every level, WeROC is building our capacity to work with our members, friends, and allies to strategically turn crises into opportunities — and fight the discouragement and division that our opponents constantly try to sow among us.  Please come and be a part of launching a new phase in our unique work in Washtenaw County, as we address current crises and social justice issues while raising new resources to do our organizing work even better.  WeROC is more important than ever, especially as we follow the lead of those most affected by the local, regional, and national injustices we are all facing.
