This past weekend our South Carolina OR groups put on their first ever fall conference. The theme of the event was “Social Justice in America." Throughout the day on Saturday attendees participated in a variety of workshops on issues such as access to healthcare, civil rights, and campaign training. State Representative Justin Bamberg and Nina Turner, our president, were the featured speakers.
Watch a clip from Sen. Turner’s speech:
We are so proud of the hard work that these chapters have put into this conference. It clearly demonstrates the strong organizing abilities of South Carolina Our Revolution groups. Together we are building a lasting progressive movement that can challenge the current systems and lead to the progressive change we know is possible. Get involved in one of the local groups to help plan future actions like this!
Our Revolution local groups like South Carolina, and ones all across the country, are making bold plans to elect progressives to office. Conferences like this are a great opportunity for organizers across the state to hear from candidates, share the successes they are having in their communities, and plan for the future.
We love hearing about our local groups. By joining a local group, you can work with like-minded people to build progressive power in your community. No group in your city?
