More than 100 enthusiastic volunteers gathered at the December 11 Roundup to share their experiences about what went well and to give feedback on what could be improved. As the participants' word cloud (above) illustrates, hope and gratitude prevailed, with an ample dose of relief.
At breakout sessions on postcards, phone banks, volunteer recruitment, canvassing and state efforts in NH and NC, comments repeatedly pointed to the importance of the Swing Blue community. We are clearly stronger together! Here are a few participant comments:
"I so appreciated the momentum of knowing that I was part of this incredible movement when I was having a hard time having much hope. Maybe it is all of our hope and actions that really achieved what happened!"
"Wonderful to connect with so many motivated and active people."
"Nothing succeeds like success – and nobody expected this success. I feel like I can tell my friends with confidence – please join the team – you can make a difference!"
The Swing Blue Newsletter will be hibernating for the holidays, and will re-appear on January 14, 2023. If you have found the Newsletter useful, please consider making a donation to Swing Blue Alliance to help keep it going. Thanks!
