About Bernie: You made a big difference. Now what?

Here’s a “yuge” thank you to everyone who turned out on Sunday to vote for our Coalition for Grassroots Progress slate of candidates to be delegates for Bernie at the Democratic National Convention.

Nearly a thousand people showed up, stood in the long lines, and voted. You made a difference – our candidates were the top five vote-getters!

And now it’s time to focus on getting out the vote for Bernie Sanders. One of the most effective things you can do now is sign up to phone-bank for Bernie. You can find a phone bank near you here. (It takes three steps: click on “Events,” then type in your zip-code, select how far you’re willing to travel, and sign up today!)

Help us push back against superdelegates

Coalition for Grassroots Progress
Alice Chan. April 26, 2016                                                       
 
 

I wrote an article about the superdelegate issue in the current edition of the North Bay Bohemian because I’m infuriated at how the Democratic Party establishment has rigged the system to prevent grassroots candidates like Bernie Sanders from getting the party’s nomination for President.

That’s why I’m urging you to be part of a Bernie Sanders caucus in San Rafael or Eureka, where we can elect delegates to the Democratic National Convention who'll fight for true democracy inside and outside the party.

Sunday, May 1
2:00 pm. (No one admitted after 3:00 pm.)
You may check in, vote and leave.

If you live in Congressional District 2 (represented by House member Jared Huffman), you can vote at either of these Bernie caucus locations:

Coalition for Grassroots Progress
April 19, 2016

                                                                                               

Last month, the Coalition for Grassroots Progress endorsed Noreen Evans for Sonoma County 5th District Supervisor.

That election is just a bit over a month away, and now you have an opportunity to join with CGP volunteers at a phone-bank this coming Tuesday, April 26, at the Carpenters Union Local 51 Hall in Santa Rosa, between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m.

During her political career over her years on the Santa Rosa City Council, as a member of the California Assembly, and as a member of the California State Senate, Noreen Evans has always represented various parts of Sonoma County’s 5th District. She knows the important issues of the district and is committed to continuing to speak up in support of urban growth boundaries, protecting fisheries and rivers, addressing the growing problem of income and wealth disparities, promoting local and sustainable organic farms, and the challenges we face due to climate change.

Join us on April 26 as we get out the vote for Noreen Evans!
