East Bay "Democracy for America" Meetup Message Board › Edwin needs your help today

Edwin needs your help today

Eden J.
Hi everyone -

From all of us to all of you ? thank you so much.

Wednesday night, 97 progressives welcomed nationally syndicated columnist David Sirota to the Rockridge Library for June's Oakland DFA Meetup. And now the (excellent) reviews are in. So far, 10 participants have given the event an average score of 4.70 out of 5.

We'll soon have video of the entire meetup online, due to the intrepid volunteerism of Edwin Rutsch, our meetup videographer. Edwin has given a great deal to our community over the last year, videotaping several events and sharing his productions with groups across the country.

And now, we can give back to Edwin. Democracy for America, the national organization based in Burlington, VT, is giving 20 scholarships to members to attend the expensive Netroots Nation bloggers convention in Austin in July.

You can support Edwin by voting for him to win this scholarship. All you have to do is click the "Nominate this person" button:­

The deadline is tonight (Friday, June 13), so if you'd like to support Edwin, please do it right now. It only takes a second.

Meanwhile, if you would like to buy "The Uprising" by David Sirota, get it at Powell's, the only independent, unionized online bookseller:­

And, finally, please RSVP for our next Oakland DFA Meetup on July 9 now:­

Stay tuned for more info!

United We Meetup,
Eden, Aaron, Janet S., Tara, Frances, Vince, Edwin, Joan, Janet F, and Norman
Your Oakland DFA Meetup Team
