Thursday night’s call began with a dedication to Heather Heyer. Nick then announced that Jimmy Dore will be moderating the Town Hall in D.C. Register if you’d like to join us at the People’s Convergence Conference! If you can’t make it to D.C., plan on attending or hosting one of our sister gatherings around the country. You can find them on our Events map. If you’d like to plan a watch party, use our Town Hall Sister Gatherings guide. These sister gatherings will form the basis for local chapters of the people’s party.
Our guest speaker, Calvin Priest, a national committee member of Socialist Alternative, one of the three Conference sponsors, emphasized the importance of organizing a people’s party for working people free of corporate control.
We continue to add more national, state, and regional leaders at DB! Besides organizing sister gatherings in many states, we keep a watch on cities where Bernie is speaking. Our leaders are turning out volunteers to greet Bernie with signs, placards, and strong DB voices to convince him that he is needed at the Town Hall! Check out his speaking stops at our Events map and join us. Call Bernie’s Senate offices and tell his staffer or scheduler that we’re holding a spot for him at the Town Hall.
All petition signatures have to be entered at the end of the day on Tuesday, Sept. 5, so that we can print and box them up on Sept. 6. We’ll deliver them to Bernie on Friday, Sept. 8. RSVP for the rally and petition delivery. See you in D.C.!
