Introduce Yourself  - 
 
I have been contacted by a group of people who want our help.  They have a petition asking the DNC and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for more debates, and it is ready to be delivered.  The petition has over 21,000 signatures! I have contacted the admin of the Washington D.C. Women for Bernie group, Haley Rabic, and they have agreed to get a contingency together to deliver the petition to Wasserman-Schultz's D.C. office on Sept. 10. They are asking if we have anyone in the Washington, D.C. area who would be able to cover the delivery of the petition for us?  I am quite sure that mainstream media wouldn't cover it.  Do we have anyone in that could be an on-the-ground reporter for this delivery, either live if we want to schedule it or as a recorded piece that we could put together for a later broadcast?

Here is the event that they have set up for the delivery with the details:

Join a group of Bernie volunteers to deliver 18000 signatures to Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz asking for more DNC sponsored debates. We will meet outside of Longworth and deliver the petitions as a group. Please wear any Bernie apparel you may have and feel free to bring signs!

I sent Lori a link to the video about how to be a reporter.  Maybe she can do it herself. :)  But we'll see what and who we can find.  +Pat Spray You're in the DC area, any ideas on who could be the reporter on the ground?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for someone in the community who is fluent in Chinese, both Simplified and Traditional.  If you are, please comment below.

I have two documents, a flier and a handout, that were translated into Chinese by volunteers, and before I publish them to the world I'd like to get a second set of eyes on them to make sure they are clear.

Please let me know if you can help.

Interview suggestions (please add more to the comments if you have other ideas)

Invite the State Democratic Party Chairs to have an interview where they can talk about how their state works in terms of the delegate process.  Send out the invites in the order that the states have their contests, so Iowa and then New Hampshire, etc.  You don't have to record them in that order, just invite them in that order.  Wikipedia has the breakdown of the dates.  This will give them a chance to invite people to get involved, and if they refuse because you're a Bernie channel we'll know that we need to find someone else.  Also post whether they accept your invitations.

As much as I love Google Plus, it's really not effective for a project like this.  Posts are getting lost, we're getting a high noise to signal, and the post/comment structure isn't conductive to discussions.  May I recommend Slack.com?

Ok, we'll talk about creating a specific slack site for bernie2016tv after the event today.  In the meantime, if anyone wants to join my national grassroots site to check out the app, please contact me.
