Pioneer Valley April Meeting

Wowsers. We just formed last month, and already we’ve got eight sophisticated and deep diving working groups (see below). And it’s clear we are more than these working groups. We are a critical mass of regular people united by an overarching progressive vision, ready to mobilize anywhere threats emerge. That’s power.

These working groups have developed action plans and will continue meeting: 
• Climate justice (in partnership with the Springfield Climate Justice Coalition)
• Economic justice (in partnership with Raise Up Massachusetts and Massachusetts Fair Share)
• Anti-hate and immigration policy (led by Adam Gomez, Springfield Ward 1 City Councilor and Holyoke City Councilor Jossie Valentín, and in partnership with American Friends Service Committee of Western Massachusetts)
• Reproductive justice (led by Holyoke City Councilor Nelson Roman and Amaad Rivera)
• Education reform (led by Lily Newman)
Criminal justice reform (in partnership with Neighbor to Neighbor Massachusetts Action Fund’s School-to-Prison Pipeline campaign)
• Impeach Trump (in partnership with Free Speech For People)
If you haven’t heard from your group leader yet, let us know and we’ll connect you.

We will be talking about consolidating efforts, and at least combining our monthly meetings, with several other regional organizations, so be prepared for a bigger crowd! And we are also excited about developing an anti-Semitism/Islamophobia breakout for next month.
