Dear Daring Democracy Members:
Our democracy is under attack. We all know this. But fewer are aware that gutsy citizens, many for the first time, are jumping in to fix our broken democracy. They’re pushing state legislators to pass real reforms and succeeding. In this exciting work, Massachusetts could become a leader.
So we’re excited to announce our next Meetup: a “Meet and Greet” with the leaders of three Massachusetts’ democracy campaigns. While they might sound wonky, they are game changers. Automatic Voter Registration, Ranked Choice Voting, and the Anti-Corruption Act.
On June 29th, please join us at the Cambridge Innovation Center to meet Pam Wilmot, master strategist of the fight for Automatic Voter Registration (and executive director of Common Cause Massachusetts); Adam Friedman, executive director of Voter Choice Massachusetts; and James Ross, coalition building coordinator for Represent.Us Boston. Pam, Adam, and James will tell us about the difference their campaigns can make and how we can plug in. Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen, authors of the forthcoming Daring Democracy: Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want will explain why these efforts matter so much.
We’ll have plenty of time for questions, discussion, and opportunities to learn more about encouraging action to get to the system-roots of our democracy crisis. On the 29th, together we can focus on solutions!
When: June 29th
Where: Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), Kendall Square, 4th Floor Kitchen
What: To give Daring Democracy members concrete ways to fight for our democracy in Massachusetts!
(Open to the public, guests must check in at the front desk w/ an ID)
See you on the 29th!
