    Fifty Thousand Working People are Petitioning Bernie Sanders to a Town Hall Meet

    Nick Brana, ContributorFounder of Draft Bernie for a People’s Party. The former National Political Outreach Coordinator with Bernie 2016 and former Electoral Manager with Our Revolution.

    Last week, we sent the following invitation to Bernie and his staff and offered to accommodate his schedule. We are waiting for his reply.

    Hi Senator,
    On behalf of the many thousands of working people who have been inspired by our movement to Draft Bernie for a People’s Party, Dr. Cornel West and I would like to invite you to join us for a town hall on Sept. 9th at American University.

    Please join us for…
    The Draft Bernie Town Hall
    Saturday, September 9 • 8:00-9:30 pm
    American University • Washington College of Law
    Washington D.C.

    At 1:30 pm on Friday, September 8, we will deliver 50,000 signatures asking you to start a people’s party and inviting you to the town hall the next day. It would mean the world to your supporters if you were there to personally accept their petition and invitation to the town hall.

    Just a quick note here–September 8th is Bernie’s birthday!

    1. It'll be interesting to see what Bernie does. I'm sure the knives will be out

    from the DNC. Watch your back Bernie.

      4. Yes. I am sure there will be much gnashing of teeth.

      The calls for him to do this are growing—Nina Turner, Tulsi Gabbard, Jane and Rose Ann DeMoro to name a few. Wish I could be there for this and am hearing it will be livestreamed.

    2. He will let us know if the time is right for a new party.

    Draft Bernie for a people's party becomes Draft Bernie for a people's single-payer party-Medicare for All.

      5. He hasn't ruled it out and he won't let anyone box him in….

      but he is out there speaking to people and keeping his powder dry.

    3. Bernie – It's time

    …and you think you’re going to stop this simply by ‘pulling a lever’, in a booth, behind a curtain, every 2 years? - Know yourself. And if you need help with that, call the FBI. -  There is only ONE solution to this mess:  New Party !

    8. I've tried getting a message to the man myself lately.

    Maybe I should address it:

    Hi Senator,

    Maybe that’d get better results.

      9. Well, to be honest I would think they are on a first name basis…

        10. Yeah. But that's cheating.
