Wow! That Grassroots Discussion was so full of real practical start-using-it-now #2020election organizing. Check out the recap below.
Thank you @kn_avery! You are brilliant! And thanks for your work with PFA and on the frontlines with Organizing Together #WOT2020 @WIOrgTogether
We started with a clip from the super helpful Turnout 2020 @BrennanCenter webinar. We listened to @evettewashere give a great rundown of the @knightfdn study of America's non-voters.

Non-voters:
- 38% do not believe their vote matters.
- Are less infromed, overwhelmed or turned off by negative news.
- Do not know the voting process.
- Less trusting of voting system.

What part of the @knightfdn study on non-voters stood out to you?

Tonight proved that #TeamPete had a grassroots infrastructure that was strong, organized, & ready.

The Marathon States program @PeteForAmerica didn’t just organize. We built community through belonging. Our volunteers built real connections.

Here’s what we accomplished:
We IDed, trained, and worked with 848 volunteer leaders in non-early states, some who are campaign veterans and many that were finding their voice in this space for the first time.
Those volunteer leaders led more than 50,000 active volunteers nationwide in weekly organizing activities not just in support of Pete, but in service to their community through monthly service projects with local organizations creating the world we want to live in.

Hey #TeamPete! I went to IA and I'd like to share my thoughts w/ you. First, you should know I've NEVER volunteered for a campaign before. I've never texted complete strangers, called complete strangers, and knocking on complete strangers' doors is possibly my worst nightmare 1/
...until now. I'm so inspired by @PeteButtigieg and #TeamPete that I went to #IA on the spur of the moment with a near stranger I'd only just met! @melissagrizzle! And she's awesome! Turns out my husband and her brother were colleague friends in KC! 😂 2/
Time out to let you know that @Lis_Smith retweeted this. And I am dead 3/

A #TeamPeteThread: I first heard of @PeteButtigieg as I was sitting on my sofa on a cold Arch night in MN and tuned into @CNN. I was immediately intrigued on the idea of restoring the values of freedom, security & democracy. So I donated! #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
I sat on that same couch in April to watch @PeteButtigieg officially announce his candidacy for the @TheDemocrats nomination for POTUS. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica #PeteForPresident #WinTheEra
Then in May I got the privilege of hearing @PeteButtigieg speak @FineLineMPLS about waking up the next day to see 2 men on the cover of @TIME w/ the title “First Family”. We even chatted for a couple minutes. BTW, all of this was in thanks to two generous #TeamPete folks.

Why this Boomer mom of two GenZ kids is supporting @PeteButtigieg. The theme this week for articles and posts and comments against Pete is his experience. What seems to be missing from this is when politics is experienced personally. Pete is a Millennial. What does that mean?
It means his generation and GenX were the warriors that fought Boomer and GenY wars. He wasn’t too young to be a counter-intelligence Officer in Afghanistan.
It means @Chas10Buttigieg was caught up in outrageous college tuition and has 6 digit debt because he wanted to teach.
It means that guns are still killing people in the streets, in schools, in places of worship, and backyards. It means they were raised in the years where they were taught everyone is equal but don’t see it in reality. It means pot being legal some places and others going to jail

Hey New Hampshire! Hear me out?

PETE BUTTIGIEG (a thread):

I'm a person in long term recovery (no alcohol/drugs 25 years!), and work in SUD treatment. My recovery, and work in the field, continues to reveal something important:
We all need each other. A LOT.
/1
The beautiful life I now enjoy, was literally planted in the fertile soil of simple kindness from others...and grew into a sustainable lifestyle around my recovery community's principles of unity & service to others.
/2
At my job in recovery, we work w/the whole family *whenever* we can, because recovery works SO much better as a "we" thing!

When therapists teach hurting families how to "fight fair"...it isn't actually about FIGHTING.

OK, #TeamPete - it's time for some real talk.
Recently, I've been seeing a lot of grumblings about the media and their coverage - or lackthereof - about our guy @PeteButtigieg.
@PeteButtigieg I get the frustration, but as someone in the media field, I'm telling you, there's no conspiracy or cabal out to sabotage Pete's campaign. Not within the world of credible news and info media anyway. Leave those conspiracies to others.
@PeteButtigieg Instead, let's follow the #RulesOfTheRoad and turn our frustration or negative energy into even MORE grassroots efforts. If you've paid attention to the mobilize site, you'll notice organizers are setting up all kinds of things you can join to help/get involved.

Why are growing numbers of Americans—Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike—enthusiastically supporting @PeteButtigieg instead of one of the other frontrunners this early in #Election2020? Because we want someone who can lead us into a rational, hopeful new era ...
Who will hold their own during campaign events calmly, courageously, and with integrity—respecting the humanity of other candidates and citizens—without resorting to the negative, dark tactic of “humiliate, beat down, conquer” ...
Who’s a rare intellect and Renaissance man—throughly conversant with all the issues/areas of knowledge that one would hope an American President would have mastered—yet humble enough to acknowledge and learn from the “least” among us.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!
