WIN Annual Reports June 2018 Midyear Report - Page 11

BASE BUILDING IN WORKING CLASS, BLACK & BROWN COMMUNITIES WIN organizers spent the beginning of last year engaged in a series of relational meetings and house meetings to deepen our base east of the river, in immigrant and Muslim communities, and working class communities. At the July 2017 action, 2 new African American ward 7 congregations joined and made dues commitments (Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church and Edgewood Baptist Church) and there were multiple prospective member institutions. From these meetings new teams such as around immigrant rights have organized and we have have begun organizing around issues important to ward 7 residents. 2018 MIDYEAR REPORT 11
