We've come a long way in the last two years. But when it comes to Granny D grit, we're not done yet.
Over 30,000 of combined miles when "Walking the Talk" around New Hampshire. More than a hundred campaign events where we "Asked the Question." Speaking to civic groups. Tabling at rallies. Our warrant article initiative. And now that hard work is paying off: A poll two years ago showed that only 9% of voters though anything could be done about fixing Big Money politics. Last month, a new poll showed that number had risen to 39%!
There's no doubt. Your donations helped make this happen.
Just like the small-donation model we'd like to see for our elections, your $50 and $100 donations help feed and support our walkers, advertise the rallies, and underwrite our organizers. We couldn't do this without your help.
Now, in the spirit of Granny D, we're planning another audacious event. We've invited national speakers and presidential candidates to Walk the Talk with us this February 5-7, 2016. In a tent. In a city park. In the dead of winter. The We the People Convention to Fight Big Money brings in New Hampshire voters, national allies, and the leading voices for reform in the country for one weekend of solidarity and action. This is our time.
The We the People Convention kicks off our 2016 election year campaign to Fight Big Money politics. Will you go the extra mile?
It's the end of the year, but we're in the big push to convince presidential candidates that they need to push reforms when they get to Washington. That effort doesn't stop after the primary. We're already talking about our participation in Democracy Spring, a massive action happening in Washington this spring.
Help us get to $50,000 in small donations by year end. And get a Walk the Talk NH Rebellion HAT to keep that warm feeling you'll get by donating!
Finally, THANK YOU for all you've done to restore our democracy and make America a better place. You are truly patriots.
The NH Rebellion Team
PS. You'll need that NHR hat when we march from the We the People Convention in Manchester to the Republican debate on Feb. 6 at St Anselm College in Goffstown. RSVP today!
