Agenda for Membership Meeting

1.) A Sum up of campaigns and 2012 election: ‘Mr. President Enforce our Civil Rights’ and the Defeat of Measure JThe year 2012 has brought the BRU another important victory: the defeat of Measure J. Despite being out spent 100 to 1 the coalition to defeat Measure J, led by the BRU, has shown that the truth, determination and leadership of our members could defeat the Yes on J campaign’s 3 million dollar corporate funded lies. The defeat of Measure J is a blow to LA Metro and opens up the political space for us to push our vision and raise critical questions around transit justice, civil rights, gentrification, global warming and the future of Los Angeles. At this November’s monthly meeting we will also take the time to reflect on the year as whole with a special focus on our national ‘Mr. President, “Enforce, Restore, Expand our Civil Rights Campaign” as we explore what opportunities and challenges will come with the re-election of President Obama. Come ready to share your thoughts around the highlights, the lessons, and where we go from here.2.) Planning Committee Nominations are here!
