TAKE ACTION NOW!

Current Action Item:

Celebrate, rest, spend time with family and friends…Look ahead…

Ongoing Action Items:

Don’t Despair.

Since November 9, 2016, there has been plenty to feel desperate about. But the best antidote is ACTION — that was evidenced by the record number of voter turnout for the midterm (!) election of 2018. For the nation, with the Democrats now controlling the House, and for the historical wins in Colorado. In case you need to be reminded of the very real BLUE WAVE that happened, go here.

Please check back here.

We meet the first Wednesday of the month. The events widget to your right, will give you general info on upcoming meetings as details become available.  We promise to strive for the best and most effective information that inspires you to DO. We held regular candidate forums all through 2017 and 2018, with record attendance — giving folks an up-close look at the caliber of Democratic candidates stepping up to serve. With the field narrowed by the primary on June 26, we continue to see active engagement with relationships continuing to be built. We also conduct meetings to inform folks about specific issues, with dynamic experts and action items. You can see the slide presentations of previous meetings when you click our Resources widget.

We have regular email blasts that list local events, but also impromptu rallies in response to current issues, as well as when to contact our electeds in support or opposition to upcoming legislation. To sign up for our blasts, send an email to longmontareadems@gmail.com with “Sign Me Up!” in the subject line to sign up for our email blasts. To review our previous blasts (by date), you can check them out on our home page here.

LAD created CLEAN — Community Legislative Early Action Network — to participate in weekly conference calls with legislators and their aides, train folks how to track bills in our state legislature, how to testify for or against bills at committee, etc. To find out more about CLEAN, click its widget on our home page. Also check out the CLEAN Training Presentation and Member Handbook.
