4,000 Deaths, 435 Town Halls

We just passed another tragic milestone with the 4,000th death of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, while the uncounted death toll of innocent Iraqis climbs beyond 1 million.

Yet in April, Congress will vote to give George Bush another $102 billion blank check for Iraq on top of past blank checks for $562 billion – unless we finally persuade our Representatives to Just Say No .

One great way to persuade a Representative is to hold a Town Hall Meeting and fill the hall with people who care and are willing to speak passionately. That gets their attention!

Democrats.com has 500,000 members, roughly 1,000 in each district. That’s more than enough to fill 435 Iraq Town Halls, if just two committed activists in each district will take the lead in organizing one. We’ve created web tools and assembled useful links to make this easier.

Will you help us organize an Iraq Town Hall?

Thanks for all you do!

Our Iraq Town Halls dovetail with several important new Iraq organizing efforts:

Progressive Democrats of America just launched its Healthcare NOT Warfare campaign to bring our troops home from Iraq and use the savings to pass H.R. 676, Rep. John Conyers’ bill which guarantees comprehensive publicly-funded, privately-delivered health care for everyone in the U.S. Please sign their petition:

Win Without War wants Rep. John Murtha, Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, to provide funding only for the safe and timely redeployment of U.S. troops out of Iraq. Please sign their letter:
