Alaskan Events!

ALASKA WOMEN FOR OBAMA – ANCHORAGE, SATURDAY 10/25 11AM – NOON, PARK STRIP

This Saturday from 11am – noon, Alaska Women for Obama wants to have a huge photo op in support of the Obama-Biden ticket.. This is our last organized event to show women outside that women in Alaska support OBAMA!!! And we know the votes cast by women are going to make all the difference in this election. This message will be used in key battleground states.

We have red, white, and blue materials to create a giant Alaska for Obama logo on the Park Strip (see below), and we have plans to have pictures and film taken from the top floor of a nearby building. We are lucky to have some really talented film and video people helping us with this-and people who have done this before. The end product is going to be amazing! We need to know by Friday night whether we will have enough people. Please RSVP to geran@chugach.net as soon as possible. Note – Please wear black pants or dark pants if you can. It will help us emphasize the red, white and blue.

We expect that Obama for America (the national campaign) will use this visual to show that Alaskan women are informed and ready for changeā€¦ and we support OBAMA!!! Our voice, because we know a lot about the choices, is so important in this election.

And for our women supporters outside of Anchorage-we want to hear from you too. Organize something similar in your own town or just take photos of yourself and /or friends with an Obama sign and your city name. We want representation from Dillingham, Bethel, Barrow, Nome, Fairbanks, Wasilla, Palmer, Girdwood, Moose Pass, Hope, Seward, Homer, Kodiak, Cordova, Yakutat, Haines, Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka, Wrangell and all points in between. Just please send your photo by 5pm this Saturday, October 25. And remember this is a grassroots thing so if it’s your homemade sign and your proud of it , then we want to use it.

Let’s show the women in those swing states that they need to make the right choice on Nov. 4!

For the Anchorage event, Meet at L and 9th at 10:45 a.m (a church is across the street on one side and the Hawthorn Suites on the other). We’ll have coffee and hot cocoa available. We’ll order sunshine too! Dress warmly, and again, please RSVP to geran@chugach.net

ALASKANS FOR ETHICS IN GOVERNMENT EVENT – TO BE SCHEDULED!

Alaska has had some tough times recently. Three legislators are in prison, a Governor’s chief of Staff has been convicted, and an Alaskan company was brought to its knees.

When will this stop? When will Alaskans say enough is enough? When can Alaskans be proud of who represents them in government?

A statewide group–Alaskans for Ethics in Government–has formed to address the public offical arrests and trials that have happened this year.

Alaskans for Ethics in Government is having a press event about the verdict. This will be a perfect time to voice our opinions about this important matter.

We’re not sure what day the press conference will be–the jury is still meeting. But it seems like it will be on Friday or maybe next week.

We’ll send out a notice when we know what day for sure. There will also be events in Anchorage and Fairbanks.

Can you join us? Can you bring a friend or two??

Date: to be announced

Time: 12pm

Location: Capitol Steps

We’d like a big group of people to let others know we’re not going to allow corrupt politicians to run our state anymore.

This is NOT a rally. This isn’t just about Ted Stevens. It’s about showing we are mad about what’s been happening.

Thanks and stay tuned! On the day of the verdict, check your email and you’ll know when the press conference is.
