Over the last month, Forward Kenosha has been undergoing some changes. Charlie Breit has made the decision to step down from the board due to personal obligations. We would like to thank him for his valuable contributions during his time serving as a board member. He plans to remain an active participant in Forward Kenosha activities.
With that, we are so excited to welcome Lori Hawkins to the Forward Kenosha Board. Lori is dedicated to grassroots advocacy, having founded the Indivisible group, Left of the I. She is also an active defender of Planned Parenthood and will be an amazing addition to our team!
The Board has spent a great deal of time reflecting on how best to use our resources to effect change. One way we can do this is to shift our focus from the closed discussion group to our public Facebook page, and clarifying an important distinction between the two platforms. The purpose of the closed group is to provide a place for free flowing discussion on a variety of topics. Topics discussed or comments made are not to be taken as official positions or endorsements of/by the organization of Forward Kenosha. Official statements and positions will be posted on public platforms of Forward Kenosha, or published in a branded format that includes the Forward Kenosha logo.
In order to lessen the confusion and promote community building, we will be incorporating the following over the next few weeks:
creating easily shareable content that all of you could share to your own networks.
transition calls to action out of the closed group, and onto the public Facebook page and website.
To best achieve the goals of this transition, we will be adding additional roles to the Forward Kenosha administrative team. Some areas in which we need assistance are social media, event planning, and promotion, and most of these tasks can be done from home! If you have a skill that you believe could benefit the organization, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we will be forming teams to concentrate on actions in specific areas. First, we will be forming 3 legislative teams focusing on local (village, city, and county), statewide, and federal government. The goals for these teams is to have more focused information and actions to put out to our followers. Look for more information on these teams in the coming weeks.
