We have changed the focus of the meeting. The combination of COVID-19 pandemic and the brutal murder of George Floyd have reminded us yet once again of the deep-seated systemic inequities and racism that consistently devalues black lives. You will hear from Dane Dems leadership of the actions to combat racism and share specific actions you can take. In preparation for the meeting, you may find this list of Anti-Racism Resources for white people: Anti-Racism Toolkit.
We will proceed with the membership vote to confirm appointments of Kalvin Barrett as the Representative to the 46th Assembly District and April Kigeya as an At-Large member to the Dane Dems Executive Board. You must be a current member to vote on these appointments.
Due to the timing of the associated changes, we have extended the time for members who wish to vote to confirm the appointments till 3:00 p.m. on June 10th. This will enable sufficient time for us to confirm membership statuses before the meeting begins.
