    “Mark your calendars! The Alliance Convention will be happening on March 10th from 1-4pm.  Hosted by YWCA Arizona – STAT-Stand Together Arizona Training & Advocacy

    Now it’s time for organizations, grassroots folks and others who signed on as Alliance members to come together to help us craft a People’s Agenda for Arizona, focusing on the top three areas that folks identified in the survey as the most important challenges facing our state: education funding, access to mental and physical healthcare and immigration reform.

    If you have yet to sign on as an Alliance member, it’s not too late. Now is the perfect time. To sign up visit bit.ly/OHAlliance.

    We convene on Saturday, March 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the YWCA in Tucson, 525 N. Bonita Ave. We will have snacks and refreshments, and plenty of good doses of community and democracy. We look forward to seeing many of you again.

    RSVP via email to STATAZ@ywcatucson.org.”
