There’s lots of discussion in the mass and alternative media about what is next for Bernie Sanders supporters. Luckily we have both time and space to think critically and collaborate to propose solutions. Our mission remains the same, but many are discussing how we pivot now, at the convention in Philadelphia and what we do locally. Our challenge is to remain connected, so we can coordinate.
Remember, we are standing up, #MakingDemocracy and we won’t give up the fight against Oligarchy.
Participate and Plan
At 11am on June 11, 2016 supporters in NYC will be meeting at Loft 142 to discuss Continuing the Political Revolution.
Hillary and Bernie NY Delegates to the National Convention in Philadelphia have a meeting on June 21, 2016. Bernie supporters have a public Wiki here to plan.
Many are going to Chicago for The People’s Summit, June 17 – 19. Let’s encourage Charles and other organizers to offer “unconference” types of sessions so we can all have a voice.
The People’s Convention is taking place in Philadelphia on July 23, 2016 and The People’s Revolution is organizing lots of people to plan for this prelude to the Democratic Party National Convention.
Finally, we’re beginning to get news of plans for the official convention in Philadelphia, July 25 – 28, 2016. the Democratic National Committee recently agreed to give Sanders six spots on the 15-member Platform Committee, a move intended to help heal any wounds remaining from the primary fight.
GroupsForBernie is Continuing and Growing
We started mostly with people we met in person around NYC. We’re talking with lots of other teams and about we grow as a single network. Our Platform enables teams to control their own content inside a Group, within the GroupsForBernie.org primary site. Your team can also administer your own subsite at yourname.GroupsForBernie.org with the option of Domain Mapping from yourname.org to yourname.GroupsForBernie.org so your user just enter yourname.org to get to your site, but we’re all connected in one large social network that fosters transparency and horizontal communication.
