Dear Friends, Partners, & Allies,
This is just a friendly reminder about our next coalition meeting. We’ll be meeting at 10 AM, Tuesday, June 4th at 1114 Quarrier Street East, Charleston (3rd Floor).
We’ll present a campaign plan based on the input received at our April strategy session, and provide updates on ongoing work, including an update on the rule-making for SB 622. We’ll also provide time for our work groups to meet to agree on the specific outcomes the group wants to produce, discuss activities (what needs to be done?) & roles (who will do what?), and report back to the larger group on next steps/resources or help needed.
We look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, please reach out if you have questions or concerns or would like a copy of the notes from the strategy session.
Julie Archer, Coordinator
