Build on the Momentum of the BAsics Bus Tour, Look for Report-Back Celebrations in Your Area!
This was posted at basicsbustour.tumblr.com on May 31:
Over the past few weeks, many hundreds of people across the country have stepped forward to make something very important happen... the second leg of the BAsics Bus Tour, which went through parts of the South and delivered a message from those hundreds to the people of Sanford, Florida. In accomplishing this, people around the country, the volunteers on the bus and those the bus tour met in the South have been part of cohering a national movement around the mass fundraising campaign to project Bob Avakian's vision and works into every corner of society: BA Everywhere... Imagine the Difference It Could Make! More than $30,000 has been raised to pay for this leg of the tour and for materials and initial seed money for the next leg.
Attend the report-back in your area or write us so we can put you in touch with events in your area or nearby. And find out other ways, wherever you are and whether you only have a couple of hours a week or the whole summer (!) to build on the momentum created by the BAscis Bus Tour in the South. Write firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer to work with press, social networking, developing a web site and much more! And let us know of other events.
