LISTEN NOW: CBMA November 2016 Membership Call

On Thursday, November 17th, CBMA hosted its November membership call, focusing particularly on post-election reflections, and providing a safe and dedicated space to talk about how we’re healing, organizing, and battling the peril before us as we continue to build on the promise within ourselves and our communities. Here was the agenda:

  1. Welcome & Introductions -- Shawn Dove, CEO, CBMA; Janet Dickerson, Sr. Communications Consultant, CBMA
  2. Post-Election Reflections from the Field
  3. Post-Election Analysis – Scott Roberts, Senior Campaign Manager for Criminal Justice, Color of Change
