We are so excited to invite you to participate in our first Weekend of Action of the general election this weekend! There are several ways you can participate.

You can canvass in your community:
We will send you sign up sheets and you can canvas high traffic neighborhoods or events such as farmers markets, festivals, busy shopping centers, and parks.

Host a house party:
You can organize a party with your friends and neighbors to discuss the campaign and how they can get involved.

Organize a phone bank:
Get your friends together to make calls on Hillarys behalf. A phonebank can be combined with your house party or it can be at a friends house or in conference room, union hall or office.

You can also have an organizational meeting at a local coffee shop or restaurant.

This upcoming weekend of action is about getting organized and bringing new people into our campaign. It’s time for our party to unite and this weekend is the perfect time to start.

> Hillary Clinton Statement on Orlando Terrorist Attack
>
> In response to the terrorist attack Saturday night at an Orlando gay nightclub Hillary Clinton released the following statement:
>
> “I join Americans in praying for the victims of the attack in Orlando, their families and the first responders who did everything they could to save lives.
>
> “This was an act of terror. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are hard at work, and we will learn more in the hours and days ahead. For now, we can say for certain that we need to redouble our efforts to defend our country from threats at home and abroad. That means defeating international terror groups, working with allies and partners to go after them wherever they are, countering their attempts to recruit people here and everywhere, and hardening our defenses at home. It also means refusing to be intimidated and staying true to our values.
>
> “This was also an act of hate. The gunman attacked an LGBT nightclub during Pride Month. To the LGBT community: please know that you have millions of allies across our country. I am one of them. We will keep fighting for your right to live freely, openly and without fear. Hate has absolutely no place in America.
>
> “Finally, we need to keep guns like the ones used last night out of the hands of terrorists or other violent criminals. This is the deadliest mass shooting in the history of the United States and it reminds us once more that weapons of war have no place on our streets.
>
> “This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country.”

> Hillary Clinton: A Moment When We All Need to Stand Together
>
> Hillary Clinton addressed the tragic terrorist attack at an Orlando LGBT nightclub during her remarks today in Cleveland, Ohio. She discussed her plan to respond to terrorist attacks like what happened in Orlando, stating that “we must attack it with clear eyes, steady hands, unwavering determination and pride in our country and our values.”
>
> Clinton has already laid out a plan to defeat ISIS and other radical jihadist groups in the region and beyond, and her remarks laid out three areas that demand urgent attention: working hand-in-hand with allies to dismantle the networks that move money, arms, propaganda and fighters around the world; hardening defenses at home and defending against lone wolves; and preventing radicalization and counter efforts by ISIS and other international terrorist networks to recruit in the United States and Europe.
>
> Clinton said, that “this is a moment when we all need to stand together” and pledged that “we will overcome the threats of terror and radicalization.” She reiterated that we are stronger together; told the LGBT community she will always have their back, and condemned Islamophobic rhetoric that is counter to our values and makes us less safe.

> Hillary Clinton Speaks on Historic Victory
>
> In remarks last week at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Hillary Clinton reflected on both the historic nature of her primary victory and the progress it represents for our country. Clinton laid out a vision for how our country and the Democratic party will break down another barrier when it nominates the first woman for president, but reflected on how much more work we have to do to remove the many other barriers holding Americans back, including the divisive, destructive and dangerous vision Donald Trump represents.
