July 7, 2004
High-school students often participate in grass-roots political campaigns, but rarely have they taught others how to run them — that is, until Campaign 101.

Fairfax, VA - Please send me your flyer. I'd be happy to hand it out, with my 19-year-old daughter and 16-year-old son, at the Cinema Arts Theatre in Fairfax. We all saw F-911 today in a packed theatre and could feel the excitement afterwards. Thanks! P.
Fairfax, VA - How fabulous! Congratulations ... for keeping your efforts strong to support our young and potential voters. You know the future of the Democratic party is in their hands, and it is up to us to encourage them to be active, and now we have proof of your success. Michael Moore's website. Wow. On the weekend of his opening of Farenheit 9/11 no less. Who could have predicted this? I say HATS OFF. Cheers, Janet (Janet Oleszek, Fairfax County At-Large School Board Member)

Campaign 101's Operation Firejump - Feel the Heat, Feel the Love
Michael Moore is turning up the heat with his new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Campaign 101 is diving into the heart of the fire to spread the word about our training to people who have seen the movie.
Campaign 101 is a grassroots Democratic campaign training for high school and college students. We're writing to ask you to help us make Campaign 101's Operation Firejump a success.
Ways You Can Help
1. Hand out Campaign 101 flyers at a showing of Fahrenheit 9/11
There is a list of theatres here.
Hand out flyers to people coming *out* of the theaters.
2. Hand out Campaign 101 flyers at F/911 House Parties.
MoveOn is organizing house parties around Fahrenheit 9/11 on Monday, June 28, all across the country. Find a house party near you here . (You'll need to plug in your own zip code.)
3. Recruit for your own Democratic or Progressive Group!
Go ahead: We don't have a monopoly on guerilla recruitment! Take your own flyers or sign up sheets. Tap into all of that Democratic excitement! Please take our flyers with you, too.
4. Spread the word!
Tell your friends about Campaign 101's Operation Firejump and invite them to join us. Spread the word on your newsletters and email lists, blogs and websites.
5. Please let us know which location/theatre/showing you cover.
Send us a quick note to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll share your success stories on the Campaign 101 website.
We don't have our flyers online just yet, so if you need a copy, please send us an email.
The Million Moms March had a great success with recruitment around Moore's last movie, Bowling for Columbine, and conservatives *actively* worked the theatres playing The Passion of the The Christ. Now it's *our* turn!
2004 is one of the most exciting and critical years in our political history. Join us for Operation Firejump and help us take back Virginia and the White House.

Student Campaign Training Needs Your Help
Campaign 101, a grasroots political training workshop for high school and college students, needs your help.
Bad News/Good News
Campaign 101 suffered a setback earlier this month when our original sponsors withdrew.
We've been asking our friends for help so we can continue Campaign 101 on our own, and the Virginia Young Democrats have stepped up as a major sponsor.
With the VYD's support, Campaign 101 is going forward as scheduled on July 10 and 11, with some minor changes and improvements. But, with less than a month to go, and a lot of work to do, we are writing to ask you to help us make our goal come true of training Virginia students in progressive grassroots campaign skills.
How Can You Help?
Spread the word!
Registration is now the critical factor in making this project a success. Help us get register participants by getting the word out to high school and college students throughout Virginia. Forward this email, tell the students that you know, and share the information on your listservs and newsletters.
Are you a high school or college student? Join us! To register, or for more information, call Shaula Evans at 804-359-5559 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you already filled out the earlier online registration form, please still send us an email. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Join us for the Job Fair!
Are you an elected Democrat or Democratic Candidate in Virginia? Please be our guest at our Volunteer/Intern Job Fair at the end of the training on July 11. Meet up with our highly-motivated, highly-skilled graduates, and recruit new volunteers, interns, and staff. For more information, call Shaula Evans at 804-359-5559 or email email@example.com.
