Dear Arlington Revolutionaries,
The year 2018 will be the year we go From Resistance to Revolution, and that journey will begin at Our Revolution Arlington's 2018 Kick-Off Meeting this Monday, February 12th at Summer's Restaurant (1520 N Courthouse Road) at 7pm. Let us know if you're coming on Facebook, Meetup or on the national Our Revolution events page ! (RSVP not required but appreciated!).
If you haven't been to a meeting in a while, or if you've been wanting to get involved but haven't found the right occasion, this is the meeting to attend! We will be reviewing our various projects - including divestment, affordable housing, public education, cooperatives, and local actions on national issues - and holding break-out sessions so that everyone can get their hands dirty and get involved right at the meeting itself. There will also be an opportunity to bring up issues that you'd like to organize around.
Throughout 2017, we were given daily reminders of how one election can drastically change the course of our country, how easily any progress we have made as a nation can be undone, and how important it is to not just defend what is already here but to fight for the future we want. The policies we are championing in our local community directly link to the agenda the Trump administration has been forcing upon us nationally, and by advocating for this positive vision of Arlington's future, our liberal and progressive-minded community can show the rest of the state and the country how we move From Resistance to Revolution.
Please invite your friends, family. neighbors, and everyone else to join us in the struggle!
