Host a Rally for Our Children's Health Care
Thanks for hosting a Rally for Children's Health Care. Here are a few things to think about when deciding where your event should be:
Congressional offices: If your representative has an office in your community, you should hold your event outside of it. The only exceptions are offices in out-of-the-way places, like office parks.
High visibility locations: If your representative doesn't have an office in your community, or it's in an out-of-the-way place, you should hold your event in a central location. Parks and town squares are often great bets. Just make sure that there is enough room for everyone to be on public property and it will have fairly high foot or vehicle traffic.
If there are multiple representative's nearby: Some of you have multiple members of Congress in your community. In that case, you should target the one who voted against children's health care recently. You can look that up here. If multiple representatives voted the wrong way, just choose one.

Important Legal Note: MoveOn.org Political Action is a political organization. Events organized in conjunction with MoveOn.org Political Action are considered partisan under the law. As a result, non-partisan not-for-profit organizations such as schools and libraries should not use staff time or resources to organize events with MoveOn.org Political Action. This could be seen as an in-kind contribution under the law, which could put the organization's tax status in jeopardy.
