Help Elect an Environmentalist!

Did you know that Donna Edwards isn't just a champion on environmental issues (which she is!) but on other progressive issues as well? For example, she co-founded and served as the first executive director of the National Network to End Domestic Violence, AND received national recognition as she led the successful fight to pass the Violence Against Women Act of 1994!

She's the kind of leader we need in Congress, and that's why EVERYONE should come out and help her get elected on Feb. 12!

Here's how you can help: volunteer to canvass on any or all of the following dates. Get out and talk to the good citizens of Maryland's 4th about the change we all need to see here in DC.

SATURDAY, JAN. 26 (tomorrow!) -- meet at 10:30 am at 6839 Eastern Ave., Takoma Park - a short walk from the Metro. We're still looking for volunteers for tomorrow so PLEASE let me know if you can make it. It'll be fun!

SATURDAY, FEB. 2 - Same deal - meet in the morning in Takoma Park. This will be our biggest pre-GOTV volunteer canvass! We need you!

SATURDAY, FEB. 9 - GOTV WEEKEND! This is a BIIIG day! We need canvass supervisors, payroll folks, and general canvassers from 11 to 4. NOTE: I had talked with some of you about the next day, Sunday, but it looks like we really need people for Saturday more. If you can only do Sunday, that's fine, but if you can do Saturday, that's better!

TUESDAY, FEB. 12 - ELECTION DAY! Woo-hoo! We need canvass supervisors, payroll folks, and general canvassers from 9:30 to 2:30 - although I'm sure we could use you any time if that doesn't work.

Here are some of her youtube videos:
