Comrade;
Because lovely care for Earth cannot be achieved in a for-profit, competitive system, the Peace and Freedom Party of California is holding a meeting as part of its regular State Central Committee meeting, to bring together people to put socialism on the ballot throughout the USA. The National Organizing Conference to advance this effort urges your participation.
Please join us.
We well understand that we cannot win socialism via the ballot box. We want to enable it to rise from all of us. As well as being on the streets and in the meeting halls, we use the popular, conventional device, elections to contribute to people knowing what socialism is, defusing it - from the people's standpoint, and letting people recognize together that whatever we call it, work for the justice we seek is socialist.

On the ballots, as candidates, we are interviewed , present our ideas at forums, are given a bit more air- and media- time besides our usual work.
We are preparing an agenda for the day, directed at enabling the people who come to begin to form a foundation for our work.
While building socialist struggle, putting it on the ballots, is our only stated intention, the many facets of doing this will be the basis of our plans. Contribute your ideas. Let us include them in our program. Come and put them together with others'.

We expect an exciting result. Our work is to bring forward people's goals so we can ALL live lovely lives, live as well as The Rich in gentle care of Earth, no one excluded; no distribution of the results of our labor by merit, but just by our being here, being together, working through toward fulfillment of these goals. We want to share our resources that will enable more of us to work toward attaining ballot status for socialist movements for the 2010 election cycle.
