Friday and Saturday were a study in contrast so fierce it took my breath away. On Friday, the threats to our communities reached a viciousness and a scale many of us haven’t seen. Yet Saturday we saw a wave of new energy and support, banging on our doors, ready to be a part of the fight.
As organizers, it is our task to step up and meet the moment. For me, as an NOI Data Bootcamp and Bernie 2016 Data Team alum, that means harnessing data and analytics to support long term community organizing as well as electoral wins. We can do both and in this moment, we have to.
