The progressive grassroots can start wielding the influence it deserves on the Democratic Party by self-organizing as well. And I’m not just talking about the DNC, but also state and local parties.
We can do a lot of good by banding together and working to help elect Democrats at all levels of government. MeetUp can provide the vehicle for that self-organizing — especially in places were the local Democratic Parties are moribund, ineffective, or non-existant.
