Want to be an active citizen? Start now to make a real difference in the 2016 elections.

1) Register as a Republican or Democrat. We have a two-party system, you throw away your power if you skip this step.

2) Google your part and the name of your state. Call and volunteer. Find out who your precinct and county party leaders are, go and meet all of them, offer your help. 

3). Go to your neighborhood caucus. Volunteer to be a degate to the county and state meetings.

Previous posts here on this site will help you learn more, but there is no substitute for experience. 

Most important rule in politics: Just show up!

Strengthen Your Neighborhood.

We are almost two months behind what was promised in previous post. But watch for more here soon.

In the mean time check out this powerful tool for neighborhood building: 


Also, for a good definition of the problems we find in neighborhood building see Robert Putman's classic book Bowling Alone 

More here soon. Hope you'll share your thoughts, that you'll come back often, and that you'll share this with your neighbors and all your friends who care about the grassroots.

Start a neighborhood group, we'll help if you want.

Want to make a real difference? Start a small group that meets once a week or once a month in your neighborhood where you live or work. More will be posted here tomorrow, and we'd love it if you have experience with small groups and would be willing to share with us.

If you're not ready to become active in one of the political parties, working for a candidate or a particular issue, this is a powerful way for you to still make a big difference in 2016.

Hope to see you back here tomorrow as we start to make this a community of neighborhood groups doing independent civic education.
