One of our anchors has a policy platform that they are developing and finalizing by the end of this week. We want to highlight the values and principles the anchor organization stands for, and the specific policies we are advocating for. We need help turning this into a compelling, well-designed document that reflects our branding so we can share with our affiliates and stakeholders. We will need the design by April 18.
With a strong and compellingly-designed policy platform, our anchor organizations can show the materials to elected officials, to other community groups, small businesses, low-income communities of color, and other stakeholders to quickly communicate what we're about and what we're advocating for in 2019 and beyond. When we're clear what we're fighting for, it's easier to build alliances for the greater good.
Bay Rising builds the power of communities of color to create a just world for everyone. Through our civic engagement (voter organizing) network of over thirty local grassroots organizations, we are building a world where all people have political power, and where everyone has a home and can live without fear of deportation or criminalization. We are creating a world where everyone can earn a living wage, receive quality healthcare and education, and live in neighborhoods with clean air, public parks, and water. We believe in environmental justice and just transition to a life-giving economy.
