Please help me get to the Democratic National Convention!
Organized by: Bill Biffington
EVENT DATE Jul 28, 2016
My name is Steve Bintliff and I am honored to have been elected as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention, pledged to Bernie Sanders. Almost a year ago, I hosted my first house party for Bernie. I was sold on Bernie's message about taking back our democracy and wanted to help foster a movement around this theme. That day, I expected only a handful of people to show up for the house party, but to my surprise, 30 people showed up! That week the story was repeated all over the country, and I knew we had a chance to make history by seizing this opportunity to change the political conversation and challenge the establishment. It's been an amazing election season. and even now, with just a few weeks before the convention, we're still exerting our influence on the Democratic Party. As a delegate, I will have the opportunity to shape and strengthen the party platform, and to select the nominee for President and Vice President. I'll have access to members of Congress and other influential party members, and I hope to have discussions with many of them over the direction and policies of the party. But I can't do any of this without YOU! My travel expenses to Philadelphia amount to about $2000. I want to be able to focus 100% of my attention to the 80,000 Bernie Sanders supporters who I represent, and give every one of them a voice at this historic convention. So please consider donating whatever you can to my travel fund. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated.
