Partner Meeting in Austin

For three days in late November, 125 staff and member-leaders from 30 CPD partner organizations gathered in Austin, TX to deepen relationships and make preparations for CPD’s 2016 National Gathering for Community Power. The meeting concluded with a vote and a decision that Pittsburgh, PA would serve as the host city for the 2016 progressive gathering.

While assembled, we marched in solidarity with local partners Workers Defense Project and Texas Organizing Project to demand that Governor Abbott stop playing politics with the lives of immigrant families.

Looking ahead to 2016, CPD and partners are deeply engaged in advancing their shared campaign efforts. The work that started in Austin will help shape what will be our largest gathering yet, as thousands of member-leaders gather next year in Pittsburgh to build a world more deeply rooted in justice and equity.
