Arizona for Bernie Sanders Office Grand Opening!

Celebrate the Opening of the "We Want Bernie"
Arizona for Bernie Sanders Office

Where : 1229 Grand Ave Phoenix - (the 9 Gallery - between 12 and 13 Ave.)
When : Aug. 22nd - 6:30 - 9:30 pm

Arizona supporters for Bernie Sanders will be holding a Grand Opening of their new Phoenix campaign office on Saturday August 22nd. The Sanders for President effort in Arizona is being spearheaded by the "We Want Bernie" National Campaign organized by Progressive Democrats of America. The Opening will start at 6:30 and go until 9:30 and the public is welcome. All guests will get a "Feeling the Bern" button and a copy of the Senators 12- point plan flyer.

The new office will be run out of a local Phoenix Gallery located at 1229 Grand Ave. The office will be the focal point for supporters to get campaign literature, buttons, signs, bumper stickers and to do phone banking, all in preparation for Arizona's Presidential Preference Election on March 22, 2016. It will also be a staging area for canvassing and local organizing meetings all geared to get the word out about Senator Bernie Sanders

Yolanda Bejarano, an early supporter of Sanders and the activist who introduced Sanders to last month's large crowd explains " The official National Sanders has made real momentum, but as we all know, they have to focus most of their attention and resources on the early primary states, especially Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. That means that the work of grassroots Bernie supporters, PDA activists, Progressives Democratic Party members, Immigration Rights Advocates, Black Lives Matter, Arizona Rank and File Union members and so many others are even more important than ever. It will be up to us grassroots organizers to pave the way in Arizona and those other states where the Bernie Sanders campaign is not now operating."

Come On Out and Join the Political Revolution

5. Awesome!

I think a lot of red states will warm up to Bernie, at least if they take a second to hear what he has to say. Keep it going Bernie!

7. So I am on Facebook and...

I have a relative who is very conservative and even though I love her to death, she has some racist tendencies sadly. She posts things in support of Trump, I post in support of Bernie. I always read her comment sections because some of her friends will openly challenge her views.

I am sending them messages introducing myself, and telling them I am the liberal black sheep of the family and then linking invites to Sanders events.

Hehe. The Revolution will not be televised

13. This is now also being promoted by the Arizona Democratic Party webpage!

https://www.facebook.com/AZDemParty?fref=nf

Embraced by the Dem Establishment here, they can't endorse but they sure can promote.

125 confirmed, 32 possibles and now at 1.2K invited. The word is getting out about this.

17. Over 300 responses

Please check the website link for the latest info in the top post. The office will be at the same space, but there will also be a larger venue down the block.

Seems all of Bernie's events need a bit more room!

There is also a list of things you might bring to the opening if you choose too.

This event is going to rock!
