OPERATION SWITCH YOUR PARTY
What is OPERATION SWITCH YOUR PARTY? An excellent opportunity to send a very powerful message: If the Democratic Party is against Individual Liberty and Parents Choice then they will lose their voters. Party leaders know that when they lose voters, they lose elections. Please note --the most powerful people in the California Democratic Party will attend this convention.
We will put on a bit of political street theater to apply political pressure to those politicians who insist on supporting SB 277. Since it is the Democratic Party who is pushing this bill, we need to send them a message, loud and clear!
1) The GREATEST PHOTO OPPORTUNITY of all time! We are organizing this event in partnership with the California Republican Assembly (CRA). The CRA was the first Republican Party support group to officially come out against SB 277. See link here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/17465223194/permalink/10152927698353195/. The CRA will have a table, large signage, literature and voter registration forms for display.
2) How can you take part? For the event to be successful, we need to convey that large numbers of current Democratic voters will be leaving the party. We will line up in front of the CRA table (feel free to bring signs to drive the point home. (I QUIT -- Democratic Party-- Not for Parents Choice). Remember, this is to convey a message. It is not about voting Republican. If you don’t wish to change your party at this time, don’t. If you are fed up and want to, then there will be voter registrations cards available for you to complete. This is a PHOTO OPP to put fear in the hearts (and wallets) of the politicians in that convention center, and to attract the attention of any media that may be present.
3) TAKE AWAY: We have to focus on the big picture and, we must think long term. We are creating a spectacular photo opportunity, and these photos can be used on fliers, postcards, mail campaigns, etc which you can easily make part of your own personal campaign against your own legislatures in your communities.
THE FUN BEGINS: on Saturday, May 16th from 10am to 1pm.
WHERE: The California Democratic Party Convention (http://www.cademconvention.org/ )
WHERE THE RALLY STARTS: We are hoping to capitalize on the momentum already begun by the various opposition groups planning rallies. The ideal place to assemble and begin the rally is at the east side (closest to Harbor Blvd) of the GRAND PLAZA (see sight map here: http://c4l-huntingtonbeach.ning.com/photo/map-of-the-anaheim-convention-center ).
The GRAND PLAZA is a 100- yard strip of walkway in between the Hilton and Marriot Hotels where many of the convention goers will be staying. It is for public use. From here we assemble and march right to Palm Court Plaza – the main entrance to the convention.
PARKING: Most convention parking is off West Street (Car Park 4,5,6 –see sight map) which between and Katella and Orangewood –the west end of the convention building. There is a parking lot where many of the trucks dock and there is a parking structure. Cost: $15
