Grassroots Power Hour Returns 2019
Grassroots Power Hour, our weekly community forum has officially returned. Power Hour is a space open to neighborhood residents, youth, and others from across the city to build meaningful relationships and find shared values. These sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings in Chicago and on Thursday evenings in Atlanta.
Our staff organizers facilitate these sessions, helping to build collective power and momentum to address issues that impact our families and communities, including police accountability, food access, and criminal justice reform. Power Hours in Chicago will focus on politics at the local level—as we gear up for the February 26th mayoral and aldermanic elections—and at the state and national levels, where we will engage freshman legislators to drive meaningful policy change. In preparation for Georgia Justice Day 2019, our Atlanta team will devote their first few Power Hours to analyzing key issues impacting the community, highlighting the importance of a unified voice, and creating a plan of action.
In order to continue developing our deep network of organizers, both veteran and emerging leaders will be invited as featured facilitators each month. Dinner is also served every week just before the start of each session, giving attendees an opportunity to organically connect.
Be sure to join us for Power Hour in Chicago on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm, or in Atlanta on Thursdays at 6pm.
