Democracy Wake Takes Empowerment to the Streets

 

Democracy Wake Takes Empowerment to the Streets

 

This is an unprecedented time in America, with people champing at the bit to take back their government from the forces driven by special interests and big money. And now, the average person has the opportunity to get involved, make a difference and do their part to rouse American Democracy from its too-long and too-deep slumber.

11070922_1117519341607873_8777186441861472698_n-300x236Democracy Awake will add an unprecedented element to its comprehensive service.For the first time in modern American history, an organization will not merely provide all the tools necessary to inform voters and empower potential candidates, but will also physically send teams throughout the country, often in barnstorming busses like the one depicted below.  These teams travel from town to town, city to city, and will educate and teach people how the system works. We will also make extensive use of social media and other online resources to support those our field teams can’t service.

Our field teams will: conduct seminars, speak at conventions, host conferences, send ‘train-the-trainer’ teams to create cadres of men and women who will then branch out and continue creating other branches in areas where they live, reaching, teaching, and educating as many people as possible how they can be a part of the solution.  Overall, Democracy Awake will provide the leadership, energy, passion, and encouragement necessary to keep the people motivated all the way through Election Day.

The main purpose of all those events will be to teach voters – using real, live, regular human beings – how all these elements work, answer questions, show them how they can be involved, and motivate them to get invested in making their country a better place.  I am a huge fan, of course, in the role innovative and cutting-edge technology plays in solving many problems in our country.  But at its heart, repairing our democracy is an issue of the human spirit, and while new technology is useful, nothing replaces good, old fashion, human touch.
