Sign up for MeetUp!
Then come out for a Sudan Peace MeetUp on August 2.
Zephyr Teachout is a friend and a true grassroots organizer. Zephyr is blogging to help stop the genocide in Darfur on ob4.org (of, by and for), Blog for Victory and has an action thread open right now on BOPNews.
Zephyr emphasizes we will cultivate the seeds of a new level of shared creativity if we come together face-to-face in small groups across the world. I agree—brainstorming and sharing our energy is good!
The easiest way to organize face-to-face gatherings is on MeetUp. See the MeetUp icon just to the right. MeetUp is a great service. It enables us to find each other, to protect our privacy and share the information that we want (like, sharing our email address with each other, or not), and to find a venue that most folks think would be most fun and productive.
I just checked our MeetUp members list. Without any promoting, we have just 54 people signed up in 39 cities and towns around the world. Let's move those numbers up! If each of us recruits a few friends, we will rapidly increase total membership across the world, and establish local gatherings. In order to have a MeetUp in a particular town, we need about 6 people to sign up to come.
Please take a moment to join. MeetUp is free, private, and effective. Once you join you can send emails to friends inviting them to join. This is the easiest and best way I know to mobilize grassroots. And that is what we need now.
