CREDO Action: Become a citizen co-sponsor of our public option resolution! :)
Build support for the public option at the local level.
Become a citizen co-sponsor of our public option resolution :)
Become a citizen co-sponsor of our resolution demanding inclusion of a strong public health insurance option in any health care bill passed this year. Then get other local groups involved.
All politics is local. So the work you can do in your community to fight for a robust public option can have a huge impact.
That is why CREDO Action is teaming up with Democracy for America and the blog FireDogLake.com to get local groups across the country to pass a resolution in support of the public option.
The first thing you can do to help in this effort is to become a citizen co-sponsor of the resolution. That way, when our volunteers approach local groups asking them to sign onto the resolution as well, the groups will see that the community supports them taking a strong stand.
The local progressive groups our volunteers will ask to pass our resolution are uniquely suited to pressuring members of Congress.
Representatives need local groups — whether they are Democratic clubs, the local Drinking Liberally or a chapter of a larger political organization — to stay in office. Often times, Representatives or their senior staff will have strong working relationships with the leaders of these types of organizations.
But before we can get local groups to sign onto our resolution, we need to show that the community supports them.
Can you sign on as a citizen co-sponsor of this resolution and let us know if there are any groups in your area that you can help us target?
Local political groups represent a vital leverage point that can help us trans
late the tremendous grassroots support for a public option into legislative action.
Help us do this by signing on as a citizen co-sponsor so we can take the resolution to groups in your area.
Thank you for working to build a better world.

P.S. If you know progressives in your area who are very politically active, please take a moment to forward this e-mail to them to increase the chance that the right groups will see and pass this resolution.
