On July 7th, in Tucson Arizona, over 65 people came together to build power in their community. Women, fathers, children, and super volunteers all showed up to raise their voices and to demand action for women, families, and our national economy. at the community power party, volunteers signed petitions urging Congress to act on immigration and other important campaigns!
It was a great time getting to know our Tucson super volunteers, including an exceptional performance by a guest Ballet Folklorico group named A Todo Folklore, all while eating delicious burritos!
Here are some things super volunteers said about the power party:
