This weekend, MoveOn.org Political Action members will host nearly 300 election gatherings in communities across the country to kick off plans for local action toward the 2012 general election. Members will come together to seize organizing opportunities that will make an impact on voters this cycle.
Leveraging its 7 million members, MoveOn will work to maximize its reach and muscle to combat the flood of 1% SuperPAC spending aimed at misleading voters. MoveOn’s plan is straightforward:
- Register and turn out voters, especially young people, people of color, and single women;
- Make clear for voters that Romney's proposals would transfer wealth from the middle class to the 1%;
- Support emerging progressive leaders for lasting, long-term progressive change.
MoveOn.org Political Action is a political action committee powered by more than 7 million Americans from every state and every congressional district. In 2008, MoveOn members delivered over 900,000 volunteers and over $80 million to help elect President Obama.
"MoveOn's 7 million members have spoken strongly and are mobilizing to reelect Barack Obama," said
Justin Ruben, Executive Director of MoveOn.org. "This weekend we kick off a campaign to use our people power to register and turn out voters and to clarify what's at stake in this election: a choice between an economy that works for everyone or just the 1%."
