Arverne: An urgent request

Dear New York MoveOn member, 

Urgent: We're looking for someone to lead an event in front of the office of Representative Gregory Meeks on Wednesday, August 26. That's when MoveOn members and our allies will gather outside the offices of key senators and representatives to call on them to support the diplomatic agreement that will prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

We have heard from MoveOn members who want to help deliver this message to Rep. Meeks—but we need someone to step up as a host for this action. 

The event should be held at one of Rep. Meeks's local offices. Here's one near you:

67-12 Rockaway Beach Boulevard
Arverne, NY

(Or you can look up other nearby office locations here.)

Coordinating an event like this is incredibly important, and we make it simple—MoveOn will recruit for the event and provide petitions and signs. We just need to make sure a passionate member is on the ground to welcome others, to print out and bring the petition signatures, and to oversee the agenda for the event (which we'll provide and walk you through!). 

Rep. Meeks is still publicly undecided on whether he will support the deal, so it's critical that he not be left out of our day of action. We know that members of Congress are being bombarded daily by expensive ads funded by some of the same war hawks who led us into Iraq. 
We can't outspend them—but we will out-mobilize them. 

Thanks for all you do.
