Next LAD Meeting, Wednesday, May 4, 6:30pm!

NEXT LAD MEETING: Our Continuing Series —Threats to Democracy PERSONIFIED, Wednesday, May 4, 6:30pm, via zoom.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO SOUND THE ALARM — IT IS JUST THAT IMPORTANT!
LAD Board members Stan Gelb, Ingrid Moore and Beth Utton
have compiled concrete examples of how REAL the threats to democracy are, right here in Colorado — as evidenced in how tragically wrong republican governance has gone. As Ingrid recently posted, “the next election is not about Rs versus Ds, but about democracy versus fascism.”

But there’s also GOOD NEWS: we’ll look at actual, real time fortifications of our democracy, in legislation passed by our Colorado legislators. We’ll hear from Molly Fitzpatrick, Boulder County Clerk, who will talk about the impact of 2022 voting legislation. And we’ll hear from Matt McGovern, chair of the House Majority Project, on specific races to watch in 2022 because, not only do majorities matter…

DEMOCRATIC MAJORITIES MATTER!

We’ll wrap up with a CLEAN spotlight —
Colorado’s state legislative session ends SOON. And as always, we’ll provide ACTION ITEMS, specifically designed to keep the threats to our democracy at bay.

SO JOIN US, and please tell a friend! Wednesday, May 4, 6:30pm, via zoom. (Email us for the zoom link at longmontareadems@gmail.com with “Send me the Zoom link!” in the subject line. We will also send the link out in this blast twice on Wednesday, May 4, at 9am & 6pm.)

Whose are the loudest voices at school board meetings, lately?

We must not take public education for granted: it’s a core tenet of a robust and thriving democracy. And a public school system that is vibrant, engaging, and equitable — preparing ALL students for our world — is key. At our last LAD meeting we talked about the historical and present attacks on our school boards. Tonight’s Longmont City Council Meeting is a joint meeting with the SVVSD at the district’s Innovation Center. AGENDA, here.

Get there early to sign up for the Public Invited to be Heard segment and state your support of public education in Longmont’s St. Vrain Valley School District — or SIMPLY SHOW UP, THANKS!

LAD Meeting: Thanks for attending!

 

TONIGHT’S LAD MEETING: Defend, Promote, DO Democracy: Defending Public Education and Our Frontline Public Servants! Wednesday, April 6, 6:30pm, via zoom. Last month we gave you an overview of caucus, a CLEAN spotlight, and a first look at 2022 candidates…

TONIGHT: You’ve seen the attacks on our school boards and unions (not just teachers unions!), the villifying of teachers, the hyperbolic assault on CRT, the hysteria around school gender equity guidelines — as well as book banning! We’ll give you context — the history of using school boards to push extremist agendas, and a look at how orchestrated this movement is, naming the dark money groups to put on your radar. We’ll give you immediacy — you’ll hear from exciting and effective public servants on the frontlines, a parent, a teacher, a nurse, and a union organizer — we’ll talk about recent WINS in workplace democracy. And as always, we’ll suggest ACTIONS you can take to further protect our democracy.

SO JOIN US, and please tell a friend! TONIGHT, Wednesday, April 6, 6:30pm, via zoom.
