    Organizing Efficiently

    IF we can't get door bellers and leafleters and phone bankers and rah-rah sign wavers and letter writers and ... organized, THEN we'll lose - deservedly.
    The NEA WEA SEA should have an open ONLINE calendaring / event management website.  EVERY union member should know that this website is THE place to go to participate.

    6 Sets of Questions should be answered:

    1. WHAT are we going to do?  
    A. Doorbelling, phone bank, rah rah, mailings, …
    B. Citizens should be able to query by their precinct or zip code to see WHAT is going on around
    them.

    2.  WHERE is the what to do?  
    A. The corner of Main and 6th, the law office of someone, the statue of …
    B. Citizens should be able to query by their precinct or zip code to see how many WHEREs are going on around them.

    3. WHO are we working with.
    A. Citizens should not be NOT dependent on any coordinator to do something, they should be able to self organize.

    4. WHEN are we doing what?
    A. Every Friday night, Just Sat the 6th …

    5. HOW are we going to do it?
    A. post the instructions on the web, so no one is dependent on any coordinator.

    6. CAMPAIGN
    A. Charter school schemes or teacher evaluation schemes in the legislature, funding issues for education, school board candidates for EVERY school district, Kerry or Dean or Gephardt, Sims or Gregoire or Talmaldge, Save the whales or trees or termites, or, whatever issue.
    B. It has to be easy for volunteers to find the campaign they want to work on.
