A Movement of Movements

At Cooperation Humboldt, we are committed to supporting grassroots social movements, building alternative institutions, and engaging in electoral work within the legal constraints of our 501(c)3 designation. Contrary to common assumptions, nonprofits can host candidate forums, circulate candidate questionnaires, and endorse legislation – we just aren’t allowed to endorse candidates.

Last week we helped to organize an impressive coalition of 15 local organizations that collaborated in a candidate forum that helped to develop a “movement of movements” approach to the upcoming local election. The event was held at College of the Redwoods, and simulcast on KMUD radio and broadcast on a large screen at the Mateel Community Center in Redway. All seven candidates running for County Supervisor in Districts 1 and 2 participated. (District 3 is also on the ballot this year, but is an uncontested race).

You can watch the entire forum by clicking here.

In Humboldt we vote for County Supervisors in the primaries, which will be held on March 3rd. If any candidate earns 50% +1 of the vote, they win the election. But if no candidate passes the 50% threshold, the top two vote earners go on to a run-off in the November election.

If you need to register to vote, or update your registration, please do so now!
