SEIU Heroes

Over at Fighting for the Future, Andy Stern tells us about SEIU Heroes -- people who have taken leave for their jobs to work on the campaign full time. Good for them.

Over the last couple of years, I've read/heard from a lot of people complaining that while they want to get involved and do something, they've been unable to find a way to do that -- they've reached out to local parties or candidates and been ignored, etc. This election season, we shouldn't be hearing any of those stories. There are numerous ways to get out there and volunteer - for campaigns, for voter registration work, etc... I'm not trying to guilt people into volunteering, but what I am suggesting is that if it's something you want to do now really is the time to do it.
