Hi Meetuppers!

It would be difficult to top March's Oakland DFA Meetup when 81 progressives got pumped to dump Richard Pombo and we wrote 72 letters to ask Senator Perata to support Clean Money.

But take a look at our power-packed April 5 agenda (next Wednesday):

* PETER KEANE, UC Hastings Professor of Law and KRON-TV Legal Analyst

* NANCY NADEL, Oakland City Councilwoman and mayoral candidate

* ANDRE SPEARMAN, Campaign Manager representing Oakland mayoral candidate Ron Dellums

* AIMEE ALLISON, candidate for Oakland District 2 City Council (and landslide winner of last year's DFA Meetup Distict 2 straw poll)

* UPDATES on the status of California Clean Money legislation, Jerry McNerney's congressional campaign to defeat Richard Pombo, Debra Bowen's campaign to bring election integrity to Sacramento, and more...

As if that wasn't enough, there's also "Dinner and the Daily Show" pre-meetup entertainment from 6:30-7, our traditional free raffle, and "Drinking Liberally" at the Conga Lounge after the Meetup!

With such an amazing agenda on one night, this will no doubt be one of our best Oakland DFA Meetups ever. So we can prepare (pizza, copies, chairs), please RSVP now at:­

More details will be provided in the coming days, but for now here's a brief overview: Prof. Keane, a highly-respected professor and legal analyst on Ch. 4, will discuss the current legal landscape as it relates to the Bush Administration's warrantless wiretapping and other potential grounds for censure or impeachment. Andre Spearman (representing Ron Dellums) and Nancy Nadel will discuss why it is important to support their respective candidacies to become Mayor of Oakland. And Aimee Allison will talk about her campaign to bring a more progressive vision to the City Council, representing District 2.

The larger a meetup is (dozens have signed up already), the more work we need to do to prepare. Can you help us by RSVP'ing now at:­

See you on Wednesday!
