Key to the Party’s coalition-building activities were its communication efforts, with the media and with other organizations and supporters. Following the Oakland Chapter and Kathleen Cleaver’s lead, other Party chapters standardized the position of communications secretary; a position primarily filled by women members. These women worked tirelessly to build and strengthen solidarity among the Party’s comrades, often interfacing with women from other organizations.
