ONE STEP PAST YOUR COMFORT ZONE: Not on facebook? Maybe now’s the time to learn, if only for political action and alerts. You’ll need to sign up for a facebook account to access very good and informative facebook pages, like Pantsuit Nation, Longmont Area Democrats or CLEAN. Even if you are a “refusnik” like many of us were at first, Facebook is an easy and friendly way to stay politically active. (and you don’t have to post to personal friends, in fact, you don’t have to post at all)
TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT Longmont Area Democrats! We are your one-stop for getting involved locally and nationally. We can point you to the best and most effective ways to be engaged. Check out our website at longmontdems.org, like us on facebook, follow us on twitter and if you know someone who’d like to sign up for this email blast, have them email us at email@example.com with “sign me up” in the subject line.
THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
