Contributions Needed for Paul Hackett's St. Louis Visit

Paul Hackett is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the NovemberVictory Democratic Challenger Convention August 18 through 20, 2006. Participants are fundraising to cover expenses for the event. Here is a message from the 100+ Democratic Congressional Candidates and staff who form the November Victory listserv:

We have organized ourselves to share experiences of running for office We are all Congressional candidates and staff, from the grassroots.

We will be meeting in St. Louis in the middle of August and we need to cover the following expenses:
  1. Paul Hackett's expenses to keynote our conference
  2. some of the expenses of our candidates traveling to St. Louis
  3. the cost of getting trained, experienced campaign staffers to organize and present workshops on September-to-November operational art
  4. the cost of communications to get earned media coverage in St. Louis to where it will do the most good, in a hundred local print outlets
We need to raise $30,000 in three weeks, and we've come to you, the grassroots, because we think that you are collectively the Democratic Reform movement. We think that you, collectively, can't stand leaving more than a hundred Congressional districts, even those that are deep red, uncontested.

We also need to obtain 300 volunteers in six weeks, and we've come to you because you are the Democratic Reform campaign staff pool. We want your help drafting the willing to serve in some capacity in nearly 100 Congressional campaigns.
