ACTION ALERT: Volunteer This Weekend!

Deano1_3 We phone banked at Madrid HQ this week and the place was crackling with energy, as most Dem candidate offices should be with only 18 days until the November 7th election, and early voting starting at alternate locations around the state this Saturday.

If you consider yourself a grassroots activist, a netroots activist or simply a responsible citizen, NOW's the time to really focus on volunteering for campaigns, the Dem Party or other organizations. If we do, we can win races all up and down the ticket. Want change in America? Then it's time to work for it, to press for it, to put your body where your mouth is. I urge you to sign up for weekend canvassing, phone banking or other tasks THIS WEEKEND and beyond at one or more of the following:
