How to Get Involved
The writers of this blog aim to do more than simply bear witness to the catastrophic policies of Congressman Richard Pombo. Rather, we hope that the information presented on this blog will lead people to take action and positively work to stop Richard Pombo. We are all learning how to do this effectively, but right now I wanted to lay out some ways of getting involved.
First, let me again encourage all of you to make a donation. I fully expect Pombo to be able to raise a couple million dollars if he feels threatened. There simply cannot be any effective opposition to him without adequate funding. So each of us who cares about stopping Pombo must find a way of donating what we can, when we can.
Second, I have started a Say No to Pombo DFA-Link group. DFA-Link is a free and easy-to-use set of online tools for organizing offline action. The Say No to Pombo DFA-Link group has already become a place where all sorts of anti-Pombo activists can come together and work collaberatively. If you want to keep tabs on opportunities to work against Pombo, join the group.
Third, my co-author VPO has established both a useful Get Involved page and a Vote Pombo Out Yahoo Group. The Yahoo Group is a discussion group about all things (anti-)Pombo. It’s a great resource, and I have found it particularly useful. As readers of this blog might know, VPO does some amount of original reporting, and so his discussion group is a great place to get the inside scoop on breaking developments, often before they are noted here.
