J&S Bean Factory DFA June Meeting: Organizing an Iraq War Forum

The St. Paul group is organizing again. The following message is posted on behalf of LINDA GOODSPEED.

Attend J&S Bean Factory DFA meetup on June 7!

Main agenda topic: Organizing an Iraq War Forum.

The war in Iraq is dominating the current political environment. Polls show that the war is the top issue for more than 40% of Americans.

Democracy From America would like us to organize an Iraq War forum to discuss this important topic. We need to determine date, time, venues, program, and speakers.

I think this is important and am excited about getting together with you to discuss ideas and do the planning.

Please attend J&S Bean Factory DFA meetup on Wednesday, June 7, 2006 at 7:00 PM. You can RSVP at:

Instant Runoff Voting Update

I wanted to write a post why endorsements by DFA Link groups matter:

The NE Minneapolis DFA Group Endorsed Instant Runoff Voting, also known as IRV, at our March 2006 Meeting. The supporters formed a new DFA Link group to help support IRV as a ballot measure in April. On May 13th the 86.3% of delegates voted to have the Minneapolis DFL endorse IRV as a ballot measure. On May 26th the Minneapolis City Council voted to place IRV on the November Ballot. DFA Link members were critical to the success of IRV so far. There is more to be done and you can help by joining our DFA-Link Group!
