MoveOn.org is still on the move... Their website advises visitors that "Obama has made clear that in order to achieve real change in this country, November 4th was just the beginning. Change will require a clear showing that a majority of Americans are ready to stand for clean energy, affordable health care for all and an end to the war in Iraq."
As a result, the organization is promoting a celebration of this renewed commitment in setting up gatherings throughout the nation. The first 'massive' "Fired Up and Ready to Go" is on November 20th. The members are set to talk about how to bring about the change America needs.
Below is an invitation from a MoveOn member who lives near New York:
I'm organizing a "Fired Up and Ready to Go" gathering this Thursday for everyone in the area to keep up the momentum from Obama's victory. Will you join us?
There are over 1,300 of these events happening all around the country on Thursday. The plan is to kick off a big campaign to help Obama pass the bold, progressive changes he talked about during the campaign. There'll also be some time to celebrate the big win with other Obama supporters in the neighborhood. We're hoping it'll be really fun!
It does seem like there's a real chance for change on clean energy, the economy, the climate crisis, health care, and the war. But there's no way Obama can do this without millions of us by his side. And that starts right here in New York. So please come to my gathering and bring a friend—we're fired up and ready to go!
