DFO Action Monthly Meeting

When:  Monday, July 23 6-8PM

Where:  Anita Earls’ Durham Campaign Headquarters, 2634 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd, Durham, NC 27707

Join Durham for Organizing Action (DFOAction) as we get fired up and activated, working to get Anita Earls elected to the NC Supreme Court.  This is no time to sit back and be demoralized.  Anita Earls can–and will–win this vital statewide election, if she has support from all of us.
On Monday July 23rd, 6-8PM at Anita’s Durham campaign office, 2634 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd, Durham, we’ll hear from Anita about what is at stake in this election, why she is running, the vile attack campaign the GOP is waging against her, and what the grassroots community can–and must–do right now to support her.  Then we will have a brief training on how to talk about Anita, the constitutional amendments, and voter registration to people in the Durham community.  Then we will get to work–right then, on Monday night.
