Abstract

As a member of the 2020-2021 Social Justice Internship cohort, I had the opprotunity to be an intern with ONE Northside. This fall I worked with the Economic Justice Team and their campaign for the "Fair Tax" in Illinois. This challenged me to understand the current tax law of Illinois and how it impacts Chicago. After its loss and into the spring, I lead a team in research and constituent outreach to find what the next long-term campaign ONE Northside should invest in. All of this was done through phone calls, emails, and virtual meetings; a major transition and challenge to traditional organizing methods.
