Friend -- I wanted to reach out and make sure you saw Traci's message from last week. I've been doing this kind of work for a long time, and I can assure you: As we look to the fights ahead, putting your ideals into action -- and getting your networks involved, too -- is what is going to keep the push for progress going strong. One easy way to make that happen is by hosting a community action meeting, where friends and neighbors can gather and discuss how you can take action to protect the progress we've fought so hard to achieve. Even if you've never done something like this before, we're committed to helping you make your event a success. Once you sign up to be a host, we'll be back in touch with everything you need to help you get organized. Don't wait to get involved -- what's at stake is too important to sit on the sidelines. We all need you to step up and fight. Say you'll host a community action meeting with your friends and neighbors, and we'll follow up to help you take the next steps: my.ofa.bo/Host-A-Community-Action-Meeting Thanks, Jack Jack Shapiro Director of Policy and Campaigns Organizing for Action --- ORIGINAL MESSAGE --- Friend -- Ready?

Friend --

Ready? It's time to channel our frustration and passion into action.

This movement is about what we can accomplish when we come together. From big fights to small ones, the path toward progress on some of our country's most important issues starts with regular people like you and me.

Now, more than ever, we can't afford to slow down -- we can't afford to ease up in our efforts to create the kind of change we want to see in our own communities.

It's time to get involved, and yes, it's time to get your friends, family, and neighbors involved, too. It's up to all of us to come together and have thoughtful conversations about the ways we can take meaningful action.

Here's one easy way to get the ball rolling: Sign up today to host a community action meeting, and we'll help you get started.

In-person meetings like these are a simple but powerful way to discuss the issues that matter most to each of us and to figure out next steps. These conversations will help determine the path forward and will turn change-seekers into change-makers. You can even do it over pizza or wine -- you're the host!

Hosting an action meeting like this is your chance to play a crucial role in this fight.

And don't worry about the details -- once you sign up, we'll guide you with resources to make your event a success.
