Major MoveOn event in New York City--save the date!

MoveOn members are coming together for a training to learn and share skills to win more progressive victories and fight back against the Tea Party. Each day will focus on different skills, and you can attend just Saturday or both days! Can you join us?  

RSVP Here!

Dear MoveOn member,

Over the last six months, thousands of MoveOn members have made a difference in their communities using our free online organizing platform. Here are just a few of our recent victories: 

  • Sheila Thomas helped pass the Violence Against Women Act by gathering more than 219,000 signatures on her petition and mobilizing the signers to contact their congressional representatives.
  • Trina McDonald stood up to military sexual assault by starting a petition that led to U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand introducing the Military Justice Improvement Act.
  • Marcel Neergaard, a brave bullying survivor, started and won a successful campaign to rescind a national award given to a state legislator who sponsored a "Don't Say Gay" law.
These members are proof that with just a little bit of confidence and know-how, every MoveOn member has the power to win real progressive change in their community. That's why we've launched our most ambitious training program yet—to help thousands of MoveOn members run and win progressive campaigns on issues that matter to them locally, regionally, and nationally. 

We're bringing a MoveOn Organizing Summit directly to you in New York City on Saturday and Sunday, November 16-17. It's free, powerful, and there's a limit to how many people can attend—so sign up today for Saturday or both days!

This Organizing Summit will combine presentations by experts with hands-on exercises, networking, and activities. We're teaming up with the experts at the New Organizing Institute to ensure that every attendee leaves the training with: 

  • New connections and friendships with hundreds of MoveOn members in your area and a better understanding of all the progressive issues there.
  • A strong online petition already gathering signatures to build a base ready to be mobilized into action—like MoveOn member Lyndia Storey's petition to stop Navy sonar testing that would deafen and kill marine life, which got more than 500,000 signatures.
  • Your own strategic campaign plan for how to build the momentum needed to win—like MoveOn member Robert Applebaum did with his student loan debt campaign, which got a direct response from President Obama.
We've learned a lot from working with Lyndia, Robert, and other MoveOn members who've won their campaigns, and we want to share that with you at the Organizing Summit! With important issues like immigration and protecting Social Security on the table, and the 2014 elections around the corner, our member-fueled progressive campaigns are more important than ever. You don't need to be a professional activist to sign up. All you need is a desire for progressive change and to be ready to have a good time.

Join other MoveOn members, MoveOn staff, and professional progressive trainers from the New Organizing Institute at the MoveOn NYC Organizing Summit on November 16-17 to help take the fight to the Tea Party Republicans. Saturday will cover campaign strategy for your petition and Sunday will dig deeper into actions, media, and engaging your signers. You can come for just Saturday or for both days! Can you make it?

Yes, I can attend in New York City!

Thanks for all you do.
