Scott Jackson sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: MN350 Leadership Team <mail-server [at] 1skymn.usnpo.org> Date: Mon, Feb 3, 2014 at 7:41 PM Subject: Please present a resolution about climate and energy at your precinct caucus! To: sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com Hello! *Are you planning to attend a precinct caucus this Tuesday evening February 4th? * I hope you'll make a point of attending so that you can present a resolution there calling for action on climate change. At precinct caucus sessions *you're actually invited to appeal to the other attendees to support action on issues you care about *, during the consideration of "resolutions". So, caucuses are a great opportunity to share your concern about climate change and to appeal to others to support action on climate to protect our kids and grandkids. You can * find where your precinct caucus location is * for the Democrat, Republican or Independence party at http://caucusfinder.sos.state.mn.us/ <http://1skymn.usnpo.org/?resource=http://citizensclimatelobbymYdOtus5mYdOtlist-managemYdOtcom/track/click?u=ec5a0006ae493b5976169ff65,AMP,id=c7a72e0962,AMP,e=4474d8a55e> For the Democrat and Republican parties, there will be close-to-home caucus sessions in communities all across the state. The *attached file shows four model resolutions * from which you can choose one or more to present at your precinct caucus. To present a resolution in the best way, you can use the resolution forms provided by the parties: Democrat resolution form which is a "fillable pdf" <http://1skymn.usnpo.org/?resource=http://wwwmYdOtdflmYdOtorg/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Form-ResolutionmYdOtpdf>, and Republican resolution form <http://1skymn.usnpo.org/?resource=http://saintpaulrepublicansmYdOtus/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/2014-Caucus-Resolutions-FormmYdOtpdf>. Even if your resolution doesn't get a majority of votes from the set of people in your caucus session, you can still build the movement by letting your fellow caucus attendees know that climate change is an issue you care deeply about, and by inviting the people who do support your resolution to get involved in MN350. If you've never been to a precinct caucus before, it might be helpful to watch this 5 minute video <http://1skymn.usnpo.org/?resource=http://citizensclimatelobbymYdOtus5mYdOtlist-manage1mYdOtcom/track/click?u=ec5a0006ae493b5976169ff65,AMP,id=c89c701e7e,AMP,e=4474d8a55e> about what happens at caucus sessions. The video is from the DFL, but the processes at caucuses for other parties are at least somewhat similar to what the video shows. After precinct caucuses, resolutions that are approved at caucuses advance to the party conventions for possible inclusion into state-wide party platforms. To help us inform people about the Alberta Clipper issue and other issues at District conventions in March, it will be very helpful if you *let us know what happened when you presented your resolution *. So please record what happens at your precinct caucus session using this report form <http://1skymn.usnpo.org/?resource=https://docsmYdOtgooglemYdOtcom/forms/d/11bgJASrlu7PK9zOidxr0kmy4RItsM3G284lk9mhBcLg/viewform>. Thanks in advance for presenting a resolution about climate at your precinct caucus session! If you have any questions about the model resolutions or about the caucus process, please send a reply to this note.
