Citizen Action of Wisconsin statewide staff meets for strategic retreat this week in Milwaukee.

This week Citizen Action of Wisconsin organizing staff meet in Milwaukee for a strategic retreat. In 3 days of intensive (and exhausting) work we made progress in planning our 2019 issue and electoral campaigns, evolving our organizational culture, improving our effectiveness as a team, and building deeper relationships between staff.

The retreat included trainings on white fragility, work styles, issue campaign strategy, how to work in a focused manner to achieve goals, lobbying, conflict resolution, and how to create an anti-racist organization.

The retreat included recently hired organizing staff who joined the Citizen Action team over the last 2 months; Karen Kirsch, Supreme Moore Omokunde, Solana Patterson-Ramos, and Noah Reif. Solana also worked as election staff in 2018 before accepting a permanent position.
