April 2014 eNewsletter

In this issue: Kelley provides an overview of the upcoming ballot measures in the region and we bid farewell to Yee Won.

As the Center's partner groups gear up for the wide range of anti-democratic ballot initiatives and those rare opportunities through the initiative to improve the lives of all, I’m reminded that Election Day is not the end goal. I'm more certain than ever in the lasting value of strong coalitions to make our vision of justice real. Win or lose on Election Day, we can also set our benchmarks to evaluate how well our work during election season leads to more caring and connected communities year round.

Together we are mighty!
