Alexandria Caucus

There was something happening in the fellowship hall at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on a rainy morning in mid-January.  Twenty leaders from a number of religious and community institutions met to talk about breathing new life into organizing with VOICE in the city of Alexandria.  The conversation, co-chaired by community activist Kevin Harris and Rev. Linda Olson Peebles, heard VOICE updates from staff organizer Loren DePina.  Mr. Harris presented a technique for doing power analyses, and the group discussed their insights into the Alexandria structures of power.  Everyone agreed that it was time for each of them to hold listening sessions in February, and to reconvene to plan a way forward. All folks interested in Alexandria VOICE are invited to add to the renewed energy for building power, at 10:30am on Wednesday, March 8, at Beth El on Seminary Road.  Sign up here
