From: Sandy Barnett
Hi Everyone - I am Sandy, and I need your help!
As Illinois.CAN Admin of the grassroots nonpartisan group Community Action Network (USACAN), the team asked me to ask you for help in Illinois! Please?
By now you may have heard a little something about the CAN groups. To be clear, we are not OFA 2.0, but we did start up last November when we asked for permission to build out within MyBO throughout the U.S. and we were fortunate to get that permission. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to write to me.
Meanwhile, we need your help to organize and to put together action events throughout Illinois to support our President, your community statewide and particularly your county. Therefore:
You're invited to join a group on My.BarackObama.com:
If you are located in a different state, please write to us and we will send you an invite for your state. We are writing to invite everyone to please come out and join our national barn building party for President Obama. Our grassroots teams, in an effort to support our President, are rolling out Grassroots Government 2.0. We are building this infrastructure to organize America. Our goal is to have Illinoisans meet in every county to discuss their most urgent needs and work on solutions. And where you are already meeting regularly, let's share information and empower each other. Follow these instructions to become involved.
1. We need you to find your "State"CAN group in MyBO and join these two groups:
2. Please update your Personal profile on MyBO with real contact information so we can interact accordingly, like your real names, etc.
3. This is CAN's team building nationwide project...to form ranks. To give you a heads up, March 7th is when the call has been put out for all CAN groups to have their second meetings across the country. We may not make that date but our target date is March 15th. In your area, it may be your first. We are asking all MyBO members who want to participate in Grassroots Government 2.0 to reach out to all their MyBO groups and have them join their StateCAN group as well. At your face to face meetings across your state and in each county you will elect officers, assign issue teams by individual interests, and make plans to work across CAN groups with all others who might share that issue focus in order to join forces and see solutions implemented. This is the plan we make in support of President Barack Obama's upcoming legislation and programs. All issues that we are focusing on to begin with are posted at www.whitehouse.gov
4. We are looking for one additional person to step up as Admin for Illinois and one person to be the Communications Director for Illinois.CAN. We could sure use your help. So if you are interested in throwing your hat in the ring, please join our group, and send me an email.
Please pass this on to your friends and fellow Obama Supporters within your state.
