PRIORITIES FOR THIS GROUP
• 2018 SENATE RACE
• 2018 HOUSE RACE
• GOVERNORS' RACES
• STATE RACES
LOOKING FOR STATE CAPTAINS
We are looking for State Captains so please let us know by replying to the Daily Action Post if you're interested. Co-captains are A-OK! Here is the directory of current State Captains.
FIRM GROUP POLICY
Keep specific policy discussions to an absolute minimum. WHY: These tend to devolve into heated discussions that don't contribute to the stated goal of the group. We need legislators in seats where they can enact progressive legislation. Sometimes policies are regional, or they aren't your priority. So, this policy is just to maintain focus on that end goal. IMPORTANT NOTE: this is a STRATEGY group for sharing useful information on upcoming and future elections. It is not a place for posting thought-pieces and opinions on past elections. We are looking to build as wide and inclusive a progressive umbrella group as possible. If you want to have a flame war go do it on your own timeline.
CODE BLUE’S FACEBOOK GROUP IS SET AS A SECRET GROUP
If you share posts from there non-members won't be able to see them. Additionally, many members don't want to be publicly known, for many reasons such as privacy, security and trolling. So, we ask that you do not share the name freely elsewhere.
Zero tolerance for trolling.
Zero tolerance for sharing members' posts outside the group.
Zero tolerance for being uncivil.
These will get you blocked.
Please comment in our Daily Action Post if you have suggested action items or ideas.
