Do you ever feel like we're on the brink of a democracy apocalypse? Then you need a Democracy Survival Kit from National Priorities Project, with everything you need to prevail against the worst challenges facing our democracy today.
A chance to win this awesome kit is yours when you make a gift towards our goal to raise 1,000 gifts of just $10 (or more!) by July 14. You'll help keep our researchers cranking, our data geeks number-crunching, and our writers making information available to people like you – all in the spirit of saving our democracy.
The White House Office of Public Engagement has scheduled a series of ten state calls (see list and specific invitation below). Note there are two calls today (Wednesday) for folks in California and Colorado and the rest through the end of this week. You are welcome to forward this invitation far and wide.
White House staff want to speak with constituents about the federal budget deficit/debt deal. There will be an opportunity to ask questions. NPP hopes you will be able to join in and ask a question and/or make a comment. (Tip: Call facilitators often give instructions about how to ask a question right at the beginning; If so, follow the instruction right away, so you can get an early spot in the line for questions.).
