This e-mail is about geographic communities, but we need to adapt the
process to issue communities like ours.

Barack Obama has said, "The teenagers and college students who left
their homes to march in the streets of Birmingham and Montgomery; the
mothers who walked instead of taking the bus after a long day of doing
somebody else's laundry and cleaning somebody else's kitchen -- they
didn't brave fire hoses and Billy clubs so that their grandchildren
and their great-grandchildren would still wonder at the beginning of
the 21st century whether their vote would be counted..."--Speech at
Howard University, September 28, 2007

End Deceptive Voting Practices: Obama will sign into law his
legislation that establishes harsh penalties for those who have
engaged in voter fraud and provides voters who have been misinformed
with accurate and full information so they can vote.

This deals with many voting problems before and after the vote itself.
We need to get the OVC program on the incoming Administration's agenda
to ensure the integrity of the voting and counting.

If people would like to join an online meeting on this issue, I'm
willing to host the party. IRC, I assume. We can invite
ElectionReformActivistsforObama to join us.

This week, President-elect Barack Obama is announcing the key members
of his White House economic team who will help him tackle serious
challenges and bring the change we need to Washington.

But there's still a lot of work to be done in communities all across
the country -- including yours.

On December 13th and 14th, supporters are coming together to reflect
on what we've accomplished and help plan the future of this movement.

Many of you have already submitted your feedback through our online
survey. Our team in Chicago is reviewing an impressive number of
detailed responses, and your input will help guide the future of this
grassroots movement.

Sign up to host a Change is Coming house meeting and invite your
friends, family, and neighbors to attend.

You'll receive everything you need to make your meeting a success,
including a special DVD our team put together just for these events.

Discuss the issues that are most important to you, what you can do to
support Barack's agenda, and how you can continue to make an impact in
your community.

Now is the time to put aside partisanship and politics, find common
ground, and work together. Please invite those who might not have been
involved in the campaign, even those who might have supported our

The challenges we face demand we be as inclusive as possible. It'll
take the whole country working together to get our country back on

Host a party to celebrate our historic achievement and take the next
steps to bring the change our country needs:


Your continued involvement is crucial to the future of this movement.

As Barack said on Election Night, "This victory alone is not the
change we seek -- it is only the chance for us to make that change."

The grassroots organization you built to win the election will
continue to set our country on a new path.

Thank you for everything you're doing,
