Getting the ball rolling...

We can start by volunteering info on these useful pointers from Democracy for America. The first key to grassroots organizing is to make sure that everybody is housed, fed, and having some fun!
  • How to find an apartment;
  • Basic information about transportation;
  • Good places to shop and get food (be sure to highlight local liberalbusinesses, including independent bookstores and coffeeshops, co-op grocerystores, etc.);
  • Information about the local religious scene, especially including liberalchurches and spiritual organizations which are welcoming and inclusive;
  • Information about the local liberal scene, including pointers to your local Drinking Liberally and DFA groups (FYI: there is a local chapter of the former, at, which formerly met at Cricket's on Tuesdays; don't know if they're still active--anyone?);
  • Local websites, blogs, newspapers, TV or radio stations that newcomers mayfind helpful or simply entertaining - including, of course, any such mediawhich has a liberal slant;
  • Information about how to register to vote, and how to get involved in thelocal Democratic party
