Bernie’s historic wins in the first 3 states has him poised to expand his lead on Super Tuesday. The establishment is shaking in its boots.

But we know that no matter what happens, the media will spin this, and the establishment will continue to throw roadblocks in Bernie’s way. Momentum in other states is critical, but visibility on the streets of Philadelphia can only come from our grassroots movement: no one can spread the word like we can.

We’ll meet at City Hall at 4PM this Tuesday, March 3rd, for a huddle and training, and then disperse in teams, set up tabling “hubs” throughout the city: waving signs, talking to voters, signing up volunteers, and showing Philly that support for Bernie is STRONG. Bernie must be Philly’s candidate!

  • 4:00PM — Huddle and training at City Hall
  • 4:30-4:45PM — Split into teams (most people will leave City Hall)
  • 5:00PM — Set up tabling hubs and begin canvassing!

Tabling Hub Locations

  • Meet us here if you can’t make it to City Hall!
  • Broad & Cecil B Moore
  • Broad & Passyunk
  • 30th & Market (30th St. Sta)
  • 18th & Walnut (Rittenhouse)
  • 15th & Market (City Hall)

What to Bring

  • Bernie gear, signs, flags
  • If you’ve got a clipboard, bring it along
  • If you’ve got a light folding/camping table, let us know — it could be helpful!

Iowa Caucus Roundup: What we’re reading while we wait for the results.

iowa causus

It’s a big news day after an ‘eventful’ Iowa caucus left us hanging last night! MSNBC reported this morning that Iowa Democrats plan to have results by 5 pm ET today. There’s a LOT of high emotion and misinformation on social media today, but there’s also confident news coming from the Sanders Campaign that their internal results sent by precinct captains around the state indicate that with close to 60% of the vote in, we have a comfortable lead. Bernie has always maintained, when turn out is good, we win, and all signs point to a large turnout yesterday.

There is significant evidence that results will prove to be in our favor. We didn’t get the Iowa Caucus closure we were looking for but while we wait for official results to be released take a look at some of the news that’s caught our eye. In the coming days let’s join together to increase volunteerism and donations as Berners will be going harder than ever with the New Hampshire Primary in sight. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize and stay focused.
