Dear RUN,

After months of brainstorming and discussion, RUN senior leaders narrowed down our priorities for 2021 at the Summit last week. Our conversations were hard - we want to do everything to end homelessness and make sure everyone has a safe, stable home they can actually afford - but we boiled down the 15 ideas from this year’s survey into four that we’ll fight for next year.

No, we won’t announce those four priorities right now! We’ve gotta get our plans together first. If you want to hear about them, join us this Wednesday at 1pm for our Community Care call, where we’ll debrief the Summit and start planning for January. If you didn’t come to the Summit, this will be a real chance to dive in.

Come 2021, we’ll kick off the year with research actions in our regions across the state, then get you all trained up in February, then look out for our virtual Lobby Days in March.

Do you know people who might want to build power with RUN? Email us back - now’s a great time to bring them in.


Take good care,
