it's the local volunteer leaders, stupid...

if you're wondering what grassroots organizing is about and why it's the key to future legislative victories, then check this out...

in tennessee we are conducting our 4th annual march 1st legislative letter writing lobby day and this year we have 2 new, smallish communities joining in like gangbusters ...

one of those cities, jackson tn, has some very savvy organizer-activists that we have hooked up with through faith communities...

this is their first year doing a write-a-thon but they scored a pre-event media hit that was outstanding...

without them tcask would never have gotten this coverage and this amazing article...so if you are wondering if an elitist strategy is going to drive the movement i suggest you think again...

peace out - <3
