East Bay "Democracy for America" Meetup Message Board › What an amazing community...
The March 1 DFA Meetup was one of our best ever! 81 folks got pumped to take down Richard Pombo and wrote 72 letters to ask Senator Perata to support the California Clean Money legislation pending in the state Senate.
Jerry McNerney (running against Pombo), Take Back Red California, and Unconditional Theatre also gave excellent presentations, deepening our understanding of what it will take to help our progressive friends fight back in red states and red districts.
I haven't seen DFA folks this ready for action since the Dean campaign. What an amazing community -- each and every one of you!
Speaking of amazing folks taking action...
1) Please seriously consider participating in DFA National's Training Academy in Stockton on March 18-19. More details at:
2) You won't want to miss Senator Debra Bowen's appearance at our next East Bay for Democracy meeting on March 20. We love Debra -- and we know you will as well. She's down-to-earth, whip-smart, and a dynamic leader in the election reform movement. More details at:
3) The DFA Meetup Team will be meeting in mid-March to finalize the April 5 DFA Meetup agenda. If you want to get involved in the Meetup Team or you have suggestions for agenda items, please e-mail me and I'll bring it to our Team's attention.
We've already got some great speakers lined up for the April 5 DFA Meetup -- can't wait to tell you about it!
Until then, please RSVP now for April 5 at:
And, tell your friends... the best way we can actualize our power as a community is by expanding our circle of kick-ass activists!
