What exactly does Avery mean when they say "race neutral"?
Carla F Wallace
31:32
Race Neutral electoral work does not name issues around race, seeing this as ‘divisive’ but in fact leaves white voters susceptible to racist messaging.

To all people registered
Claudia Horwitz
49:10
amen
Carla F Wallace
50:15
YES! White people who have a mutual interest with People of Color for the change we all need.
Carla F Wallace
55:03
So important to think about this point about white folks overcorrecting to get so small we are not showing up to do the work we need to do with other white folks.
Mark Brown
57:33
I love the point about white people needing to avoid over-correcting for past dominance, and to take the risk of making mistakes.
Claudia Horwitz
57:39
this is same with Stacey Abrams
Eli Berkowitz
59:30
Question: Would love some more specific examples of what “gov’ts in waiting” do following a loss, in addition/support to next election.
Z! Haukeness, They, Chapter Support, Louisville
01:02:24
We welcome other questions if folks have them, feel free to send them directly to me or in the chat to everyone.
Carla F Wallace
01:03:08
“Demand a radical democracy” YES!
jane Haugh
01:03:57
What state races need white people engaging with white working class/ working poor/ poor folx to flip the Senate?
Madeline Carroll
01:07:14
I am in Portland. I don’t think I got to meet Danita. I look forward to meeting both of you!
Madeline Carroll
01:07:38
We are *super* thrilled with how the event played out.
Robert W Neill Jr
01:08:47
That was a great call with Angela Davis
Claudia Horwitz
01:09:44
would be great to get to the “which swing states / which state races?” question
Tim Nafziger
01:12:28
Could you speak how this structure based organizing relates to Momentum based model (used by Sunrise and Cosecha for example) that aims to work at the intersection of structure based organizing and mass organizing moments like Occupy and Standing Rock?

Carla F Wallace
01:31:30
Brilliant work KellySue! Shows that this is possible!
Hayden Mora
01:33:45
KellySue and and S, that is such incredible work. Thank you

01:36:14
What does this National SURJ strategy focused on electoral work look like for those of us in areas without a Working Families Party presence such as here in Ventura County in Southern California?
Carla F Wallace
01:38:26
There will be an ‘Opt in” plan for folks connected to SURJ no matter where you are and no matter whether WFP is there (yet:)
Hayden Mora
01:40:05
Carla is right, as usual. there’s also no barrier no matter where you live. WFP is a national party and will engage and support SURJ no matter where you are in the country.
Robert W Neill Jr
01:42:21
That is a great idea to target sheriffs and da's
