Sometimes the work of changing a district from solidly red to blue feels impossible. It is especially challenging when allies tell you it is impossible too. This is why I'm so grateful for my friends who look at the numbers and say "What?! Easy! We can do that!" and get to work doing something about it.
In the spirit of a true, grassroots, effort, please welcome to the airwaves "CA District One Media" which premiered on KVMR this week.
Awesome, right? Gives you all sorts of ideas and inspiration, right? Wondering how you can help, right?
This is only the beginning of what many smart, committed, and talented people are ready to launch. Here are 3 ways you can get involved now:
1. Know a fresh voice in CA District One who is fired up about the state of our current politics and wants to use their voice to make real change? They need someone who is camera ready and willing to commit to regular taping sessions now through the 2018 mid-term elections. Maybe it is you! If so, contact Stephanie Nix, firstname.lastname@example.org. Let her know your skills or share a great YouTube video that reflects your talent. This is an unpaid position.
2. Tune in to KVMR news hour 6-7pm PST every Monday to hear the latest on elected officials' actions in Congress, their votes, and public comments. Talk to your friends about what you learn. Share your concerns.
3. If you have some extra money lying around, make a donation to KVMR. Community radio is more important than ever.
Stay tuned for more!
