What we just did in DC together is truly remarkable.
Hosting a local meetup to discuss your experience in this historic action is a great way to keep the movement growing. Your story about participating is the most powerful tool you have to spread the word about Keystone XL and the tar sands and to encourage more people to join our movement.
The best time to host is right away, while the memories are freshest, and while there is still plenty of time to encourage others to join the next action at the beginning of October. Hosting a meetup is easy – just pick a time, date, and location, then put out word to your friends, family and personal network to join you. We’ll also list your event on TarSandsAction.org to help connect you with other people in your community.
Duncan put together a quick PowerPoint that you can use in your meetup – it has a bunch of photos and other background information that might be helpful for explaining the key facts about the action. There is also a separate note sheet to help you with giving a presentation.
Feel free to edit and revise this presentation, and if you have any suggested edits or tips about what worked best please let us know via email, or leave a comment below.
