Join us in conversation with Louis Bailey, Assembly Member Marcela Mitaynes, Fernando Ortiz Baez, and Hatuey Ramos-Fermin as they discuss the future of community organizing.  

This past year highlighted the value of on-the-ground community organizing work, and generated a myriad of new possibilities for it. We have seen the rise of mutual aid networks, online organizing tactics that supported budget equity, designers fighting for a more community- and justice-centered profession, and more.

For the seventh and final Power After the Pandemic dialogue, we welcomed three alumni from ANHD’s Center for Community Leadership and a UDF Fellow to envision a more people-powered city after the pandemic and to discuss: how can cross-sector coalitions build solidarity and power in service of more equitable cities?
