Election Countdown: Time to Birddog the Candidates!

Video.jpgWith less than a month to go until Election Day, we're hearing lots of campaign promises on everything from jobs and the economy to climate change and national security. But how will our leaders be able to solve these problems when they're stuck spending hours a day raising money for reelection, most of it from out-of-state interests intent on maintaining the unjust status quo?

That's why we're calling on New Hampshire candidates in both parties to publicly commit to ending the system of big money corruption in Washington, now and in the upcoming presidential primary. Dozens of supporters have already joined our birddogging team and we're inviting others to sign up to question the candidates as they tour the state.

If you're new to birddogging, check out this short video and let us know if you'd like to attend one of our upcoming trainings.

Big money is getting bigger and so must we!

DanielWeeks_2009_235.jpgWhen our friend, Lawrence Lessig, and a handful of brave souls kicked off the first NH Rebellion walk this January in the footsteps of Granny D, we couldn't have imagined that hundreds of committed reformers would finish the walk with us two weeks later, or that thousands more would lend support from afar.

Six months later on July 4th and 5th, we were inspired by the more than 500 of you marched in local parades and along the NH seacoast to declare independence from big money in politics. Now, with special interests spending billions of dollars to influence the fall election, our work is more urgent than ever.

Introducing our new brand and website!

It isn't everyday that an organization gets to "reinvent" itself, but when the opportunity comes you've got to grab it by the horns! Last month, we invited a community of skilled designers to submit their ideas for a new Open Democracy logo and identity via an online contest. Dozens of talented designers responded and we collected over 100 submissions. 

Then, we put the leading designs out to you, our communityof supporters around New Hampshire and beyond. More than 100 of you responded by voting on the top five submissions, and one of those designs came out on top. As a pro-democracy organization, we naturally had to proceed with the design you chose. And we thank you for choosing well!

We're proud to unveil our new logo above, which we think (and hope) strong expresses three key aspirations of our movement.
