Connect Unite New York!

by winkk

The Connect! Unite! Act! group, 'Connect! New York' is up and running!  Most ppl that have never been to the state, including many that live in 'The City' or on Long Island, believe it to be paved.  But, NY is central PA with a big paved City on the corner.  Hell, so much like central PA that some in southern NY wish to secede from NY and join PA!  Point being NY is one diverse sumbitch, at least three states in one.  And, the point of this group is to get most NY Kossacks on the same page.  See what they did this past weekend in TX?  Eighty Texans now connected to get busy turning TX blue!  Next year that will double to 160, and double, again,
the year after that to over 300!  See how it works.
It's not hard.  It's all about showing up.  All we need to do is show up.
navajo and MB showed up.  Eighty Texans showed up.  They left home with a date for the next TX MeetUp and how to bring more Texans with them.
This NY group is the connect point.  Pretty simple, just click this link and ask to join the group.
Simple as that.  For more precise and direct communication we have a "home page" of sorts over at Big Tent at... N.N. New York allowing us to communicate member-to-member (as we do here with Kos mail), and make "Lists" all the way down to the precinct level.
Tired of watching the Clown Car Parade pass by?  Get connected and plugged in!
Our April MeetUp is Sat. Apr. 25 in Utica beginning at 4pm.  Details to follow.
Click a link and get connected!

Dear New York State Senator Tom Libous,

Are you a complete and total idiot?  Or do you just assume your constituents are?  More below the fold.

If you're not yet familiar with our very own navajo-inspired Connect! Unite! Act! Diary series, then you need to be.  It is, in my less-than-humble opinion, a big orange chunk of what this Daily Kos blog is about: Organizing at your state and local level.
And, what better place to Meet and Greet with your fellow state Kossacks to help build and organize your state's Orange Delegation than NN14 in Detroit?  Sure, we can do that as easily Online, maybe, but there's something about attaching a face and voice to the Kos user name that changes the dynamic.

navajo has kicked some serious ass getting this Connect! Unite! Act! thing off the ground and running!  The diary series - and local Events as a result of that series -
is a great starting point to get your Event off the ground!  The annual Netroots Nation events can be the place to solidify those efforts, meet with those in your state getting
it done, and share Organizing tips to better our efforts.  (and, if we could extend the annual NN event to local Quarterly events that would be even better, but that's for down the road).
So... I propose we do just that.  Find a space - restaurant, hotel room, whatever - to Meet and Greet with NN14-goers from your state, share some Skittles and beer, and exchange Contact info so you can find each other once you get home and back here
on the Great Orange Satan.  How do we find each other at NN14?   Wear a Name Tag with your state - #MI or whatever - on the tag so others know you're from there.
Got other ideas?  Post away in the comments!  And, thank navajo for the hard work!

From New York State?  Going to Netroots Nation this year or next year or 2016?   This is your Group.  (And, we need 49 other such Groups).  If you're attending this year's Event in Detroit we need a "NY State Delegation" Meet Up there.  Somewhere.  I'm thinking Fri. night.  And, hopefully that leads to more Meet Ups when we get back home!  So, if you're from New York and going to Detroit get in this Diary thread so
we can find other New Yorkers at NN14.  We got elections to win.
