Bernie House Party – Holiday FL – July 29, 2015

Bernie House Party - Holiday, FL

 

Last night I attended one of the Bernie House Parties in Holiday, Florida. A warm, cheery home was filled to the brim with 25 Bernie supporters, as we chatted, snacked, and viewed Bernie’s grassroots organizing kickoff address via live stream.

After the video, folks had an opportunity to Volunteer for Bernie on a handy laptop open to the Bernie 2016 website. Everyone mixed and discussed local, state, and national politics – mostly from the progressive point of view. From retirees to college students, almost everyone agreed the #1 issue is money in politics.

Simultaneously, more than 100,000 Bernie supporters gathered at 3,500 grassroots house parties from Maine to Hawaii – the largest online organizing event of the 2016 campaign, so far. The house parties aimed to help people get deeply involved in Sanders’ presidential campaign, as well as to mobilize the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
