The election was rough, no question. But less than a week later, something pretty amazing is happening: MoveOn members around the country are picking themselves up and getting ready for the fights ahead.
In fact, more than 300 folks have stepped up to host "Potlucks for Progress" starting next Sunday!
We're going to get together, eat some delicious home cooking, and talk about how we can keep making progress on the big problems facing America—despite Republican obstructionists saying that their No. 1 priority is to make President Obama a one-term president.1
But we still need hosts in Inwood. Can you lend us your living room for some great food and conversation with progressives in the neighborhood?
Hosting a potluck is really fun and easy. It's also a great opportunity to meet like-minded progressives in your area. All you have to do is provide the space, and we'll invite other members to attend.
Also, if Sunday is bad, you can set up an event on Monday the 15th or Tuesday the 16th. (Although Sunday is ideal, because at 7 p.m. Eastern Time—4 p.m. Pacific—we'll be having a live conference call with a special guest to be announced.)
With so many big problems facing America, we can't afford to stop making progress on the real issues, like rebuilding our economy, fighting back against corporate influence, and strengthening the progressive movement overall.
But after a tough election, we need to work together to figure out the path forward. And a lot of progressives could probably use some comfort food and friendly faces right about now.
Can you host a potluck in Inwood?
Thanks for all you do.
