Blog for Iowa: Planning a Quad Cities Iraq War Forum
Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa
Thanks, Sam, for bringing our Iraq War Forum to the attention of Blog for Iowa readers! We had a great planning meeting last night and want to tell you about this Democracy for America national action, and what we are doing about it in the Quad Cities.
Democracy for America (DFA) has come up with some great ideas for local groups all around the country (world?) to participate in more or less at the same time. The January 2005 Meetup was a framing workshop based on the George Lakoff DVD, How Democrats and Progressives Can Win, sent free of charge to DFA Meetup hosts around the country, together with directions for the workshop. We had 55 people come
out for that Meetup, even with a snow storm that closed the schools that day. My personal favorite was the April 2005 action to save Social Security -
The “constituent visits” to the local offices of Senator Grassley and Representatives Nussle and Evans.
