Democratic Party meetup
I've added a link to the Democratic Party MeetUp on the left-hand side of this page.
The Dean meetups effectively allowed the grassroots to take ownership of local campaign organizing -- wielding a great deal of influence on the campaign. The results are self-evident (and are being effectively recreated by the Kucinich and Draft Clark movements).
The progressive grassroots can start wielding the influence it deserves on the Democratic Party by self-organizing as well. And I'm not just talking about the DNC, but also state and local parties.
We can do a lot of good by banding together and working to help elect Democrats at all levels of government. MeetUp can provide the vehicle for that self-organizing -- especially in places were the local Democratic Parties are moribund, ineffective, or non-existant.
So get involved. Sign up. We've got a lot of work ahead of us, and we'll need all the bodies we can get.Posted August 30, 2003 08:16 AM | Comments (50)
