Party in Brooklyn: six weeks to win!

We've got six weeks to stop Republicans and corporate funders from taking over Congress. To get started, we're gathering at "Six Weeks to Win" house parties on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

There's a party in Brooklyn. Can you make it?

Dear MoveOn member,

The sky isn't falling—yet. 

Yes, corporate special interests are expected to dump $400 million into local races to buy back Congress for Republicans—and yes, the polls aren't looking great.1 But the polls were looking just as bad for us around this time in 2008.2 That fall, we rolled up our sleeves and helped propel President Obama to victory. 

This Tuesday, we're getting together at parties to build the same election program that helped turn the tide two years ago. These gatherings will launch the "Stop the Takeover" program—our bold plan to help re-elect progressive heroes and prevent Republicans and their corporate allies from taking control of Congress. 

There's a party near you in Brooklyn on Tuesday. Can you make it?

We have just over six weeks to mobilize thousands of volunteers to support our progressive heroes and expose the corporate lobbyists who are teaming up with Republicans to buy this election.
 It's going to take all of us to defend Congress from a corporate and Republican takeover  

The parties are a fun and social way to help launch this campaign—and they're the crucial first step to provide a boost to progressive heroes like Rep. Alan Grayson and Sen. Barbara Boxer. Many of the races that will actually determine whether Republicans and their corporate allies regain control of Congress are still neck and neck—and MoveOn members' energy and passion can tilt these contests our way. 

We need an all-hands-on-deck effort to win. Click here to come to a party on Tuesday:

Election season is here—and the excitement starts on Tuesday. Hope you'll be there. 

Thanks for all you do.
