October 17th Roundup Recap

Posted on October 20, 2021

Here’s some of the feedback we received from the 80 folks who joined the first Swing Blue Alliance All-Volunteer Roundup with special guest Luisa Boyarski:

  • great event with exactly the information I need to decide where to place my volunteer energy.
  • great music, photos, slides……excellent selection of focused important actions and luisa boyarski is stunning! thank you ever so much for putting this together and lighting a fire under us!
  • I am concerned about voting rights and more importantly losing the majority in House and Senate. I thought Dr. Boyarski laid out the concerns in Virginia very well. I intend to reach out tomorrow to support the effort there.
  • Very informative, motivational and monthly is a good frequency for these team meetings.
  • very inspiring. did a good job of helping us all believe that we can make a difference. and also showing how high the stakes are.

Please visit our YouTube site for the recording of the event. A copy of the slide deck is available on request.

A huge thank you to Jamie French, the slide deck artist who created and ran the slides for the meeting, Julia Dunlea for the creatives, and Julia Thompson-Philbrook for the Spotify playlist.  We are also grateful to Luisa Boyarski, who took to time to speak to us at this pivotal moment in Virginia’s history.

Thank you to those who contributed links for additional information in the chat. They have been incorporated into these pages on SwingBlueAlliance.org.
