From Yezdyar Kaoosji at Fresno For Bernie:

20151014-fres4bernieThe Fresno For Bernie campaign activities are ramping up with Democratic Club presentations and table events at various locations. Recently, volunteers staffed the Democratic Party Voter Registration booth at the Fresno Fair and the Intermountain Nursery annual fair in Prather.

On October 31, we will host a table at the “Proud to Be Democrats” celebration, at Radio Park. Come to the Bernie Table. All Democrats are invited to meet at the booth to share their campaign plans and experiences. The details of this family oriented gathering are advertised separately in this newsletter.

Starting with the first of the six Democratic Presidential debates Fresno For Bernie outreach efforts to Get Out The Word are being stepped up. The plan includes providing speakers to address major issues the Sanders campaign at Fresno County Democratic Clubs and other organization meetings. These presentations can be the featured program of the meeting, or a shorter 10-minute outline or Q & A giving the audience an opportunity to explore Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign platform. Our speakers can also participate in panel discussions on whether we as a nation are prepared to take on serious issues that impact the people and determine how to address them.

To join the various campaign teams contact us at: Two Facebook Groups: “Fresno For Bernie” (450 members) and “Fresno For Bernie Events” (45 members)
