Though most prattling pundits don’t seem to notice, grassroots organizing makes all the difference in high-stakes elections where we fight for every vote. Convergence and The Forge reached out to organizers whose intense and persistent work at the base—within and beyond the election cycle—played a crucial role in blocking the red wave this year. We asked them what worked, what didn’t, where we need to keep our focus for the fight ahead. You can read the first set of responses here. In the second installment of this series, we hear from:
- TakeAction Minnesota—Elianne Farhat
- Showing Up for Racial Justice/Defending Repro Rights in Kentucky—Celina Culver
- Pennsylvania Stands Up—Carrie Santoro
- New York Working Families Party—Divya Sundaram and Tascha Van Auken
