Alliance Assemble!

    January 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
    YWCA of Southern Arizona
    525 N. Bonita Ave. Tucson

    “Hey ho, Operation Haboob Avengers. OK. OK. Alliance and others interested in helping us challenge the extreme agenda that hurts Arizona women, families and people of color, and is devastating our economy and environment. Learn about Operation Haboob’s and strategize together as we take a dive in 2019 into the biggest issues facing our state.

    First up in January is Climate and then issues we know our state Legislature will wrestle with as it goes into session on Jan. 14. We’re expecting a great yearlong adventure into state, regional and national policy that we’ll communicate through our podcast and online, and we hope you’ll not just join us, but actively set the agenda.

    Together, we will take our agenda to the people of the state, as well as our governor, state legislators and more.

    “Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say ‘No, you move’,”
    —Captain America

    Alliance Assemble!

    Event is free and open to all Alliance members, individuals, grassroots folks and organizers, and organizations interested in rebuilding community, reviving democracy and co-creating an Arizona where everyone can thrive.”
