Give your feedback here on both Wendy Falb and Milinda Ysasi before Friday July 19th. This feedback will inform the endorsement decision of the Equity PAC leadership that we will announce the week of July 22nd.
Are you ready to take action?
"The work" is not always glamorous or seen, but we need people like you to advocate, work, and advance equity. Here are some ways to engage now in direct action to increase the number of equity-minded officials, policies, and practices in Kent County.
Support equity-minded candidates
Help your candidates knock on doors, make calls, and spread the word. Let voters know how these candidates will be an effective voice once elected, and that they WILL advance more equitable policy and practice.
Work on key issue areas
Interested in how political leaders can build infrastructure to be accountable to the people they serve that need it most? We are too. We are working on how to support equity-minded leaders so that they can not only win races, but build accountability infrastructure that builds power to the issues. If you live in communities that are most impacted by issues around policing, affordability or immigration justice and want to help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a lead volunteer
We're 100% volunteer driven, and still need leads to help in the following areas: communication, event coordination, and volunteer coordination. If you have experience in these areas, or have other skills that could help us (i.e. design, data management, campaign experience, public speaking, etc.), please let us know.
