Third, here are some things that are happening this week:
*Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 16th at 7 PM*, Beth Huang from Boston DSA will
join us for a special meeting on *how to do power mapping*, with a focus on
public transportation in Berkshire County. Power mapping is a way of
parsing out the power dynamics underlying a problem so that clear goals,
strategies, allies, and opponents are identifiable. *Please email us for
the link*. Bonus if you know a lot about Berkshire county public
transportation! The more info, the better! If not, that's ok, too. Power
mapping is an effective strategy in any social justice action.
*Wednesday, March 17th at 6 PM,* *Take Back the Grid* is meeting to discuss
the Utility Relief for all Campaign. *Please email us for the link.*
*Thursday, March 18th at 6 PM, Berkshire DSA Reading Group. *We'll be
discussing the first chapter of "Freedom Is A Constant Struggle" by Angela
Davis. You can find a link to that and other texts here for free.
A summary will be provided for those who didn't have time to read.
