PUT DOWN THE EGGNOG, SHAKE OFF THE TINSEL, AND BRING A FRIEND WITH YOU TO START OFF 2008 WITH A BANG!

The holidays are over and it’s time to look forward to 2008. This is sure to be an exciting, action-packed year, and we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get down to business!

The first open meeting of the Sacramento for Democracy Steering Committee was a huge success. Join us next Wednesday to see what we have planned for this VERY IMPORTANT year!

2008 FOCUS OVERVIEW: We have an election-filled year ahead of us, with 3 days of heading to the polls between February and November! What’s important to you this year, and what part will you play in putting this country back on the right path? We’ll discuss where we’re headed this year as a group and what our priorities will be.

CAMPAIGN UPDATES: We’ll hear from the campaigns of our local congressional candidates, Bill Durston (CD3) and Charlie Brown (CD4). They’ll bring us news on their races, how their campaigns are progressing, and how we can help.

IT’S IN THE CONSTITUTION (ISN’T IT???): How well do you know the American Constitution? If you’re like me, High School Civics class was a lifetime ago! This month, SfD will kick off a new monthly feature of “Constitution Corner”. We’ll go over a section of the Constitution each month, talking about what’s in there, what it means, and how it relates to what’s going on in our country today.

AND SPEAKING OF HIGH SCHOOL CIVICS...: What grade should we give our local school districts? SfD member Jim Eaton will be directing an assessment of school district curriculum. What are our kids learning in school today? Here’s your chance to help this committee look into what our schools are teaching, who decides what is being taught, and how we can make a difference at a local level to ensure our kids are getting what they need to face the challenges of the future.

AND LOTS MORE:
Ever get to a protest or rally and realize you didn’t bring a sign? Not this time! We’ll be making signs for the January 20th Day Of Error. We’ll have some materials, but we can always use more. Bring any sign-making materials, along with your ideas and enthusiasm! We’ll also provide more details on the multiple events planned for that day.

Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions for 2008 yet? How about your Progressive Resolutions?? We’ll put these in writing and send them back out next year – what a great way to focus your goals for this year!
