Check out our latest action project...
THE 50-STATE CHALLENGE!
The Purple Living Room Project
was started by a group of
American expats living in Thailand.
In the wake of the US government shutdown,
we decided to challenge our community
to come together
and write a letter to Congress
asking for a legislative solution
to prevent government shutdowns in the future.
We drafted a letter with the goal of capturing
the "purple points" around the issue...
We shared this letter with our community
and began our first 50-State Challenge!
Our goal was to collect signatures
from voters in as many states
and as many legislative districts as possible.
We printed letters to send
to the Senators and Representatives connected
with each of the expats who signed....
We tracked down signatures
from each of the voters
(in purple ink!)
So, how did we do?
The results are in from our first 50-State Challenge...
Number of States Represented?
Number of Signatures?
Number of Letters Sent to Congress?
It was a great start...
and we can do better!
We plan to tackle
one issue at a time
and see if we can find
that will help
us gather signatures
Let's contact Congress
and let our representatives
know that we want them to
and create legislation
that will help us
move forward as a nation!
"Meet in the Middle" is a Purple Living Room campaign encouraging people from across the political spectrum to meet together each week in order to find common ground. Each middle of the week (WEDNESDAY!) we'll post an update on Purple Living Room Project activities. Share YOUR progress on our Facebook group page or in the comments here. Our goal?
