Please join Network For Progress, a social and media-savvy community inspired by the "Yes We Can" Movement to engage Progressives, Democrats, Hope Mongers and Change Makers in political and civic participation, for a celebration of the 8th birthday of Obama For America with a look ahead at the “Future of our Movement” and the 4th birthday of Network For Progress with a “Ready For Unity” campaign to advocate for a stronger coalition in 2016 and beyond.
The program will include several media-savvy experts and young activists who can give their take on how to grow our causes in the 21st Century online and offline.
And there is no better place to host a gathering focused on the future of the increasingly digital-driven world of movement-building than a space that President Obama has recognized recently, the 1776 Startup Campus, which boasts the tagline “Where revolutions begin.” Our venue as well as open bar and appetizers are provided courtesy of General Assembly - the school for technology, business and design education for entrepreneurs and startup companies.
As the President described at the State of the Union Address, 2014 was a great year for America but a terrible year for his Democratic allies but as we saw during the 2008 Obama campaign and recently witnessed in Paris, “unity” is not just an hopeful ideal but a STRATEGY for positive action that we need more than ever to move America forward.
As you might have seen, the DNC has created a Democratic Victory Task Force that is planning to submit a report at their February Meeting and sent out November and December surveys to ask for your input on how to succeed again so please have your voice heard:
The President’s organization, Organizing For Action (formerly Obama For America) is also asking for feedback.
But we need to make sure ALL our voices are heard this time. At the event, we will encourage a more open dialogue as well so we can learn from each other and work together as well to build support for our collective causes.
