You’ve seen the headlines.

In fact, one of last month’s speakers, FL State Rep Anna Eskamani, showed us what she does in order to win over voters long before an election happens—create problem-solving events in off-years to keep our names out there, champion economic issues, connect to the common good. But how?
That’s what this month’s meeting is all about. What will it take to fire up the base in your neck of the woods? Has your group held a fire-up-the-base event, or are you planning one? We’ll hear from several group leaders who either have experience holding fire-up events or are planning one, but most of all, we want to learn from your experience!

So, join us September 7, 7:30pm on Zoom to learn from each other about what works and how to do it right!
