Reskilling in Democracy – Groundswell Update
From Braden Crooks & the Groundswell campaigners:
Our Kickstarter is Launched! Check it out here. Feel free to send us a few bucks and forward this email to anyone you think would be interested in donating!
Kickstarting is a easy and fun way to fund creative projects. We are going to make a series of videos about our campaign this fall, and then post them on the web. When we’re done we’ll put them together into a DVD. If you donate, we’ve got some sweet rewards like tee shirts, posters and signed stills that you get to take home! We need your help!
There’s an introductory video up at our webpage already.
Also, be sure to ‘like’ our facebook page: Groundswell PA
Somehow, it’s fall already.
We need your help to Host events each Sunday of October in four parks around State College. Can you knit a Groundswell Scarf, teach us all a Groundswell’n great dance, cook up some swell food, or maybe make up some hot apple cider? We need your help to make our four park events fun and exciting this October. We would also like to work with neighborhood associations and other groups in each park we picnic in, so if you have any connections send ’em our way.
- Fairmount Park – October 2
- Holmes Foster – October 9
- Sunset Park – October 16
- Central Parklett – October 23
You’ll hear more from us as each date approaches. Keep in mind that we will be going door-to-door, registering voters, present at other festivals and events, out in the streets and pouring our hear and soul into getting the Community Environmental Bill of Rights and Natural Gas Drilling Ban passed.
NOVEMBER 8TH is the day we vote!
We need all the help we can get, so please let us know if you can volunteer your services. There is a lot that is going to happen this fall, so keep updated!
We have our weekly meeting Sundays at 8 p.m. in the New Leaf Office: 100 South Fraser- Under Duncan Doughnuts.
