Gotta love the grassroots. Without them them, no campaign could put together an effective ground game. So far, the Sanders campaign seems to have gotten the drop on other Democratic presidential organizations in Alabama. Although you wouldn’t know it to read the papers. On July 29th, over 250 Sanders volunteers turned out for the national event/conference call in Huntsville – but the local news didn’t consider it important enough to cover. Fortunately, events in Birmingham and Mobile did merit news mention.
Saturday, local volunteers in cities nationwide participated in a “Chalk the Block” for Bernie event. They “chalked” the sidewalks in their own neighborhoods, in downtown areas, on university campuses, anyplace they could really… to advertise the Sanders campaign and its core issues.
Enjoy the photo diary – with pictures shared from across the state – as much as the Sanders folks did creating some unique sidewalk art.
More pics are on the flip.
AND… I keep asking this question — where are the other campaigns? I know you must be active in the state by now. Are you holding organizing events, houseparties, what? We’d love to publicize your efforts and promote your events here at LIA.
All Democratic candidates and volunteers are welcome to share your events and perspective as long as it’s positive about your candidate. Let the Republicans tear each other apart; we’re just happy to have serious candidates who don’t seem to be contestants in the world’s worst political reality show.
