Highlights and Summary of Highlander’s 2009 Program Work

Nurturing and connecting grassroots people and groups working for transformative change is why Highlander exists, so let’s start there. Here’s what was new in 2009:

Why did we launch new projects in times of economic crisis? Because in exactly those kinds of times, we believe it is imperative for Highlander to keep doing what Highlander does best – bring people together to learn from each other, build the capacity of grassroots people and groups to transform issues of injustice in their communities, connect people to others working on similar issues, and connect people across race, culture and issue for holistic analysis and stronger, broad-based grassroots movement.

In addition to the new efforts mentioned, we were also busy with Highlander’s ongoing program work.
