Spring has sprung! As always, we at Persist Brooklyn hope this email finds you well and that you got to enjoy some of the sunny spring weather over the weekend (combined with some electoral work for one of our endorsed candidates perhaps?) Speaking of NYC elections, the Persist Brooklyn Electoral Strategy Team is in the process of putting together a weekly event that will focus on electoral work (such as phone banking) for one of our endorsed candidates. Join the #2021-nyc-mobilizations channel in our Slack workspace to hear updates, volunteer opportunities, and more! 🌸 Looking forward to mobilizing with y'all in the spring sunshine! 🌸

THURS APR. 1st 7-8:30 PM ET: Media and Democracy Working Group

SAT APR. 3rd 5-7pm ET: Looking Local Virtual Happy Hour with Scott Stringer & César Zuñiga
