Posts Tagged ‘Volunteers’

Last night, July 29 2015, over 100,000 US citizens gathered in house parties, union halls, businesses, and churches to kickoff the Bernie Sanders for president campaign.

I attended the one held at an outdoor business called Backtracker, where an estimated 500 people showed up. Thousands of Oregonians met all over the state in similar meetings. This meeting was duplicated all over the US in over 3500 locations. Most of these events had been maxed out and were no longer taking volunteers.

It was a historic evening — the largest campaign gathering of this election by a huge margin, and also in US history. And at every event, people signed up to volunteer and committed themselves to building a movement capable of winning an election and reclaiming our democracy from the billionaire class.

In American politics, there are two primary sources of power: organized people, and organized money. Last night proved that Bernie has the people and that he’s well organized.

When the people stand together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish, even when the Republican and Democratic leadership, along with their billionaire masters, try to steal the election from Bernie using every vile and illegal trick in the book.

Not only can Bernie win Democratic primary, but in a recent poll, he won against every Republican candiate for president. So Senator Sanders can win the general election. When that occurs, we can ensure that no one who works a full-time job lives in poverty. We can provide education as a right for all Americans, not just wealthy families. We can guarantee health care as a right, not a privilege, in this country. We can solve the minor problems for social security recipients, like raising the amount people receive, simply by eliminating the unconstitutional cap on contributions created for millionaires and billionaires.

Nothing significant in this country happens in terms of change unless a strong grassroots movement takes place. US Senator Bernie Sanders has just initiated one great grassroots movement, which is nothing more than a political revolution.

Check out the video below for more information on those poll numbers.

Something unprecedented is going to happen tonight. Will you be able to say that you were a part of it?

Wednesday, July 29—in 3,146 homes, town squares, coffee shops and union halls, more than 82,000 people who support Bernie Sander’s campaign will participate in their first organizing meeting. They will see Bernie via live video, make new friends and help build the movement that’s taking our country back from the billionaire class.

Yes, I want to be a part of this. Which meetings can I go to?

I can’t make it, but I am willing to contribute $10 to help support these meetings

We’ve got the people on our side—not the billionaires. Your small donations pay for the basic infrastructure that allows this movement to grow and grow and grow.

Here’s what history looks like. Each dot on this map is an organizing meeting happening Wednesday night:

No other presidential campaign has had this many grassroots events this early on in the race—not even President Obama. That’s what I mean when I say tonight will be historic.

At tonight’s organizing meetings, supporters in your community will meet each other and share their stories about why they support Bernie. Then there will be a live video of Bernie speaking about what our next steps will be to build our campaign in your neighborhood.

It’s going to be a big night. Take back your government. Join us.
