Holiday Party - Get ready for 2012

Celebrate Change - Create Change - EB DFA Holiday Party

East Bay Democracy for America’s been at the center of Progressive change since it started. This year we’ve shown how the Invisible Hand is Robbing California, how the Citizen’s Redistricting Commission created districts that made sense rather than ones that protected incumbents and how there’s still hope for Single Payer in California in 2012.

Now it’s time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished at our Holiday Party. This is your chance to meet with like minded Progressives in a less formal environment than our regular Meetups.

Come to the Holiday Party Meetup

December 10th – Saturday


Mark & Gail Shafarman’s House
6011 Hillegass Ave. (just off Claremont)


Mark & Gail will start the ball rolling, but we should all bring something to share - drinks, finger food or something more substantial. Anything you bring to share will be gladly eaten.

     A-H appetizers

     I-O side dishes

     P-Z desserts

2012 looks to be an important election year. There are many campaigns that need our help both here in California as well as around the country. EB DFA has always presented many ways that help create Progressive change from letter writing to putting boots on the ground where it matters.

In city squares and college campuses around the country the Occupy movement has changed the discourse about wealth in America. The people working for Progressive change for the 99% need our support.

In Wisconsin they are working to Recall Gov. Scott Wallace after successfully recalling two of the Republicans who stripped unions of their collective bargaining rights.

In Nevada, Dina Titus who lost her seat in Congress to a Tea Party Republican in 2010. He is pushing to gut the Federal government. Dina is running again to retake her seat. She’s not Barbara Lee but here’s a chance for us to turn Red to Blue in a state that can make a difference both in Congress and in the Presidential race.

Finding ways for us to get our voices heard is a big part of what EB DFA has been doing for the past 7 years.

Here’s our “ask” of you:

The organizing team needs your help if we are going to continue presenting Meetups that inform and energize you. We need you to volunteer to help us organize in 2012.

Come to the Holiday Party with ideas for 2012 and a willingness to lend a hand to make those ideas into reality. In this case it's true - We can't keep doing this without your help and support.
