Dear Fellow Activists and Friends of Democracy,
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.

As a leader in the Resistance Movement, you are invited to join us for a day of education, organization, collaboration and resistance training on July, 8, 2017 at the beautiful Upjohn Mansion/Hudson Lodge, located at 601 Union St., Hudson, NY. It will be a unique gathering of activists, trainers and teachers from CD19 as well as many supporters from neighboring Blue Districts and promises to be a full and rich day.

Linked is a registration form that includes a brief outline for the day and also your lunch preference, which is included in your registration fee. Filling this out as soon as possible will help us to prepare a well organized and effective event. This is an all volunteer effort and your cooperation and speedy response will be tremendously helpful and appreciated.

If you are able to sponsor another activist for whom the fee is a barrier, please indicate that on the registration form.
If the $35 fee is a barrier for attendance, please contact me.

We will be creating an introductory video of the great work that is happening all over CD19 to start the day, if your group would like to participate in that via Skype or Face Time, please also indicate that on the registration form.

Our email list is is not complete. Please share this with other activists that you think would be helpful.

We are strongly recommending that all participants read On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.

This is a ticketed event.

We are very excited about our speaker line up and the dynamic of the day!
