State Voices is beginning a strategic planning process that will redefine our vision to advance our work and build political power through 2022 and beyond. The official launch happens on Monday, June 3rd.
State Voices enlisted the help of two political strategists and experienced facilitators–Esperanza Tervalon-Garrett and Carmen Berkley–to help navigate the Committee’s three-phase process. Part of their work will include producing a short report on the committee’s findings to support fundraising, organizing and implementation of our new strategic direction. Read more about Esperanza and Carmen here.
Then, we tapped our national network to put together The North Star Committee––a body that will develop relationships as a committee, establish norms, and institute a consensus building model for decision making during this process. This committee will also design our landscape assessment and develop a timeline to collect, and analyze data from states that will inform our strategic direction synthesis. Please see the names of the committee members below.
