Change is Coming Kick-Off

he official kick-off of the Change is Coming house meetings is tomorrow, although there are over 200 early meetings taking place tonight. Altogether over 4200 event have been organized throughout the country, from small local gatherings to an event in Los Angeles with nearly 500 attendees.

Many of the hosts we spoke with last night were busy making final preparations for the weekend.

Jan Biederman in Cleveland explained:

The goals of our get-together will be multi-fold, not the least of which will be to keep the grass-roots momentum going. I think that myself and many others view this as not only another political election, but as a progressive movement to really change some of the awful ways our country was run during the Bush administration.

I plan to facilitate a discussion on what we can do locally to help bring about the change we all want, and not just wait for Washington.

I hope that by getting people together, even if we did not know each other before the event, we will leave with some of the same warm feeling we had during the election, knowing there are many others like ourselves out there willing to actually walk the walk ...

It's not too late to find an event near you. And if you're attending a meeting this weekend, send us your photos and stories at
