Jane has graciously given me a guest post to inform the FDL community that Blue America candidate Darcy Burner, co-author of the Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq, will be in Los Angeles on April 9th, and I’m helping to organize a netroots-themed fundraiser for her that evening!
We all love Darcy Burner for the leadership she has shown on Iraq, FISA and net neutrality, but getting to meet in person is a very special treat. It’s only $25 to attend, and the event is being hosted at the home of Rick Jacobs, founder of the Courage Campaign.
It’s a very low-dollar event–just $25 to get to meet a wonderful candidate who represents one of our best pickup opportunities this cycle.
To RSVP for the event and make your contribution, just go to the ActBlue page I’ve created for the event.
We’ll not only have Darcy there, but also quite a few of the more prominent local L.A. bloggers as well, so it’s a great meet-and-greet opportunity. And don’t forget: if you want to attend, RSVP and make your contribution ASAP, since today is the Q1 fundraising deadline!
See you on the 9th!
