What is one of your proudest leadership moments during the past year and why? Feel free to share more than one.

Getting members to picket and rally and call for change in child protection in Massachusetts- resulting in between $40-60 million in additional funding JUST for more workers – about a 35% increase in funding for staff and adding, by he time all the money will be spent about 600 front line staff (and 509 members!) which will make caseloads lower and keep kids safer

Looking ahead to this year, what do you want to be the next step in your development as a leader? How will that step help our movement for economic and racial justice?

Learn to keep momentum going and keep members understanding that there is no overnight fix to any of the problems we take on- that we have to be in the fight for the long haul
