More on Building Power and Winning
And, More to Do!
I am writing today for two reasons: to thank you for your partnership with me over the years (some of you have supported my work for the past 40 years!) and to let you know that I am retiring from Spirit in Action.
I have only had three jobs during the past four decades and many of you have moved with me each time. Most of you have become dear friends and “family.” Whether you are a long-term supporter or a more recent one, you have played an important part in the many victories we have accomplished. I can never thank you enough, but I want to expressed my deepest heart felt appreciation for all you have made possible.
Spirit in Action will be closing its doors, yet the work of this beloved organization will live on. We started in 2000 with a vision through the year 2020, and we have more than accomplished everything we set out to do.
I will continue my lifelong work for social justice as the Executive Director of the Solidago Foundation through 2024. I am raising funds and supporting grassroots organizations working for voter registration, get-out-the-vote and voter protection in Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina.
In 2024 I will be 71, and while I foresee slowing down some, I can never imagine completely stopping this work! I continue to hold and work for a vision of a society grounded in love, equity, sustainability and justice.
You can continue to reach me through my website. I look forward to hearing from you. I will also keep you on my email list for future updates.
P.S. My new book, Building Power to Win, published by Spirit in Action, is an organizer’s manual that focuses on issue-based organizing and how to keep volunteers motivated, engaged and active for the long-haul. It is available in paperback and on Kindle. A Spanish-language version is also available now.
