    v5 v6  
    2525 * ''Target groups under threat and communities of color'' - Not only have the convergences intentionally put people of color and women in leadership roles, but May First/People Link has also played an instrumental role in developing a network of techies of color which met at the Highlander Center in May. The ideas behind the Technology and Revolution campaign played a large role in the gathering and promises to continue influencing this critical work
    2626 * ''Story-based approaches to education on technology use'' - all convergences start with a popcorn exercise that encourages visioning the future we want, and encouraging a broad narrative approach to developing strategy
    27  * ''Improve participation of MF/PL members and deepen political development based on realities in each center'' - May First/People Link has participated heavily in events and campaigns attended by our members. In addition to the Technology and Revolution campaign, we have also connected with members at the gathering at Highlander, our continued participation in the Media Action Grassroots Network, the Left Forum and Allied Media Conference, the Association of Progressive Communications membership meeting, Netroots Nation, and through the autogestión movement in Mexico City . Through these efforts we have developed critical new relationships with members and seen new leadership arise within the LC.

    2929In addition, directly and indirectly via the Technology and Revolution Campaign, we have made significant progress with the following priorities:
     
    6161* ''Form a dedicated fundraising committee to explore new funding opportunities, including consulting services, and opportunities for crowd funding. This committee will be merged with the existing admin committee.''
    6262
    63 This priority was our only failure. In short, we did not succeed in organizing a committee to explore additional fundraising options. In part, this de-prioritizing came naturally as a consequence of successful contracting with the Center for Media Justice to work on the Digital Sanctuary web site, a process that brough in over $15,000 in contract fees for working in an area already consistent with our priorities. Nonetheless, it still represents a failure in our responsibility of the Leadership Committee.
