UJP Activist: UFPJ Post-election Discussion








UFPJ POST-ELECTION DISCUSSION
============================================================

When:  Wednesday, November 10, 2010 - 8:30-9:30 PM EST

What:   UFPJ Post-election Discussion

Where: Conference Call Call in number 1-218-339-0237 passcode: 111010

Who:    Perspectives from Steve Cobble, Progressive Political Strategist

Now that the midterm election is over and we know the outcomes for most races,
it's time to look more closely at what happened and what we can expect in the
coming months and year. Join Steve Cobble, trusted political strategist for the
left, as he navigates us through the results of the mid-term elections, current
political culture and how progressive issues may/may not move forward. This will
be followed by a discussion of how the movement can effectively engage in the
new political context.

About Steve:

Steve Cobble is currently a Fellow at the Institute of Policy Studies, focused
on antiwar work, voting rights, and Third World debt. He is a founding member of
Progressive Democrats of America, and a co-founder of AfterDowningStreet.org, a
leading impeachment web site. Steve has worked in progressive electoral politics
since being elected a McGovern delegate at age 20, and has had the good fortune
to:

*help Reverend Jackson with his 1996 DNC speech, serve as the National Rainbow
Coalition's political director, and work on the Jackson '88 campaign.

*train African National Congress organizers in GOTV in 1991.

*help elect a Latino Governor in New Mexico (Toney Anaya), an African-American
DNC Chair (Ron Brown), and a woman African-American Senator in Illinois (Carole
Moseley-Braun).

*rally with Lula da Silva and Jesse Jackson in a stadium in Sao Paulo, amidst a
sea of waving flags, in 2002; and stand with Jackson and Tim Robbins on the
stage in Hyde Park, London, in front of more than a million people marching to
stop Bush's war.

We hope to hear you on the call this Wednesday!
