Join Network For Progress, a media-savvy Advocate, social-savvy Community and movement-building Resource for forward-minded Grassroots Action,
as we host a bi-partisan meetup with a DC Comm Tech For Progress speaker series program on how to host and promote successful events as well as how to be most effective in interacting with your fellow guests!

Whether you are looking to build connections to build a Movement for a cause or build your Career or Business for your own professional development, the ability to host and/or connect at events is extremely valuable to network-building.

Relationships are the single most important marketing tool to building influence and the best way to develop relationships is face-to-face through offline social engagement.


And what is so “bi-partisan” about the program? Since mastering events is not an ideological skill, we will be joined by Chad Barth of Eventbrite, who worked at the Republican National Committee for eight years and served as
Deputy Strategy Director for Political Technologies and can provide a unique perspective that even many smart Democratic organizers might not have about the use of relationship-building on the right.


We will also discuss a special EVENT that Network For Progress would like help with planning for 2014!

6:30 Networking

7:00 CT4P Program with Q&A: “Leveraging Events for Network-building”

GUN REFORM UPDATE:

 

With Gabby Giffords and Newtown parents behind him, President Obama made one of the most passionate speeches of his presidency on Thursday to condemn the outrageous cowardice of the U.S. Senators who voted down a modest advance in gun safety:

 

WATCH: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yr9x1CzW2Yw

(Gabby’s response in New York Times op-ed: http://goo.gl/E9kXI)

 

The good news is it is very apparent that this fight has just begun as it took about six hours after the background check bill was defeated for gunmen to shut down an ENTIRE CITY as we learned the truth that it takes up to 9,000 GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS to stop a bad guy with a gun.

 

Unfortunately, now that the voting is over people seem to be galvanized to protest but that means we have more momentum now than we did last week so join the Movement now!

 

THANK OUR LOCAL SENATORS Barbara Milkuski, Ben Cardin, Tim Kaine and Mark Warner (he voted against assault weapon ban & limited magazines though) for their support of gun reform AND CONFRONT THE 45 SENATORS WHO OPPOSED REFORM via Email/Facebook/Tweet:

http://www.demandaction.org/ShameOnYou?akid=598.788980.MgZh1X&rd=1&t=2

(The Senators who voted against gun reform had received a combined $7,815,894 from the gun lobby:http://buff.ly/Z9hk6x)

 

ALSO DONATE TO RED STATE DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED FOR REFORM:

Join individual WNDC Members, who are hosting a benefit reception for Kristin Cabral, WNDC Member and Democratic Candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District (seat held since 1980 by Republican career politician Frank Wolf).

While Kristin can’t possibly match her incumbent fundraising levels, she needs help to fund her GOTV efforts in the 10th District—a key swing district where getting out the vote for Cabral could also turn out votes for Gov. Kaine and President Obama.

Not surprisingly, Kristin and her Republican opponent have vastly different views on most issues, but nowhere near as starkly as their stands on Choice. Virginia’s 10th district is one of the most pro-choice districts in the state.

With only 17% of the seats in Congress, we need more women—and more women like Kristin Cabral. It’s going to take a whole lot of grassroots energy to win on November 6th, but with your help, it’s possible to help OUR OWN WNDC MEMBER bring some common sense back to Washington!
