Henry Serrano: "In the two years of the electoral work we’ve had more people go out and do door-knocking in the organization that had done it in the ten years previously. I think the electoral work is something people understand very clearly, the goals behind it, and we were able to use it as a vehicle to really do some of the basic organizing training. Where there was some resistance earlier for people to actually go out and door-knock in their neighborhood, we’ve had over 200 people do it now over two years. So it’s really given us an opportunity to instill some kind of organizing skills and the beginning of the leadership development pieces that we haven’t had opportunities to do before."
