Dogwood News This Week: what's next?

Facebook AV/VR r1 Dogwood Your place for
news and action Saturday November 5, 2022
The energy in the room at last night’s post-NDP leadership race town hall was palpable – even if it was a ‘Zoom room.’ The panelists had so many insights to offer, the chat was on fire, the ideas were flowing, and it felt like folks could have carried on all night.

If you missed it or want to share with your friends and family, we’ve posted a recording of the full event on YouTube.

Last night’s electric atmosphere is a reflection of the fast and furious leadership race itself: the explosion of inspiration and organizing that brought thousands of new members into the... party, the frustration at the BC NDP’s decision to shut down the race and deny its members the right to vote, and a huge desire for concrete next steps that can keep building on the momentum that was created.

From the audience surveys we ran and the lively chat, it’s clear there is energy for multiple paths forward. This was also one of the key takeaways from the panelists: we need to stick together and work against divisions on the left, inside and beyond party politics. Coming together with your community and organizing on the ground is what matters, and political parties are just one vehicle among many to do that work.

Dogwood is committed to continuing the conversation about how we build power to push for climate justice and fight back against the corporate takeover of our democracy. Stay tuned!
