Bernie has said, “If we win in Iowa and New Hampshire, it opens up for us a path toward victory.” We need to win Iowa. And we're planning this trip for North Carolina volunteers who want to go to Iowa to make it happen.
While we may not have Super PAC money, we have the people power to make it happen and help mobilize voters to get out to the caucus. We believe bringing a large, visible group of volunteers from across our country to Iowa the weekend before the caucus could make a huge impact on voter turnout to the caucus. Every revolution in history has had a watershed moment; Iowa is ours.
We will be heading to Iowa Thursday, January 28th after work & returning to North Carolina in two groups, one on Monday, February 1st and another late on Tuesday, February 2, the day after the caucus. The trip should cost about $5,290 in total with food, transportation and accommodations for 16 people included. That's $330.00 per volunteer. There are a few vans lined up to get everyone out to Iowa and to use for shuttling Iowans to and from caucus. We've also got a house rented with enough space for all of us to stay in.
To make this happen, we're going to need a bit of support from everyone. If you're not able to make it out to Iowa yourself, please help mobilize North Carolina's volunteers and consider donating to this effort, whether it's sponsoring one volunteer for $330.00 or one day's worth of meals for $40.00. Every dollar helps!
Together, we will create the moment that will define our movement, so grab your snow boots and Bernie gear and let’s go to Iowa!
