Remember when thousands of children from Central America were showing up at the border to seek asylum?   Whatever happened to them?  Or what about that great organizing campaign that won a raise in the minimum wage here in Minnesota?  Been there, done that?  Or the momentous march on New York where hundreds of thousands of folks came together in the largest climate-change demonstration in history.  Good headlines for a few days, but now what?

And let’s not forget the continued organizing of low wage workers and the persistent demands for reform of our criminal justice system — from the Black Lives Matter campaign to the Second Chance Coalition’s Ban the Box campaign.

On this cusp of the New Year, we will revisit stories like these and then take a quick look at what’s ahead for 2015.
