Since we’ve launched this campaign nearly two months ago, we’ve said our organizing will continue to be based on the unwavering belief that people have the power to change their communities, and that, by working together, they can change their country. That’s what the Grassroots Planning Sessions we’ve been doing are all about.
Over the last month, we’ve been meeting 1:1 with supporters and asking them whether they are “In” for 2012. We then scheduled meetings to bring all of these supporters together to plan out what this campaign should look like in their own communities.
Last week we held the first of these Grassroots Planning Sessions in Renton and Tacoma. This week we follow up those meetings with six more. Can you join us at one near you?
