WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? A POST-ELECTION FORUM

Making sense of these crazy elections... Where do our social movements in
Massachusetts go from here? What role might "One Nation Working Together" play
in this dangerous time?



The "One Nation Working Together" rally brought together an unprecedented
progressive coalition in Washington on October 2. Nationally, One Nation plans
to continue its ambitious collaboration effort after the November election -
when such collaboration between labor, civil rights, environmental, socal
justice, housing, peace, and youth groups will be more important than ever.

The speakers represent Massachusetts groups that collaborated on One Nation. The
forum will assess the election results and their impact on our movements'
political environment, suggest ways that our movements can response together in
2011 to the many challenges we face, and examine whether One Nation might play a
role in our efforts to unite social movements here in Massachusetts.

  * 
Juan Cofield, New England Area Conference NAACP

      *
