MEET THE ORGANIZER: NEAL MORGAN


 

 REGISTER HERE * 

Ever wonder what an organizer does? Why do campaigns rely on them so much? What critical activities do organizers oversee in the final days of a campaign to increase chances for a "win"? What is Sister District doing in those final weeks to bolster the chances for Rep. Laurie Pohutsky and Christine Morse to win seats in the Michigan State House of Representatives and flip the chamber blue? Join us on September 26 to find out!

AND - AGAIN - WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!  All of you are committed to making progress this year and we'll spend some time discussing your ideas and what you want to focus on in the 5-week run-up to the election.

*NOTE: Your confirmation email will come from Phyllis Cauley <no-reply@zoom.us>.
