TAKE ACTION TODAY!

GRASSROOTS PUSH BACK

Did you know elected officials actually fear YOU more than they do the gambling interests?

It is true.

Here are some of the best-known secrets in political circles that elected officials don’t want you to know:

  • A knowledgeable voter can hold them accountable;
  • An active voter can vote them out of office;
  • It takes as little as a six (6) phone calls to get the attention of your elected official. Amazing!

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

STEP I: GET PLUGGED IN

Join our email list to stay informed!

Also, please consider joining member organizations of CBA:

STEP 2: GET SOCIAL [Media, that is]!

There are quick and EASY ways to make your voice heard while creating a viral “social circle”:

  • Join our Facebook page and upload stories, video clips, action alerts, etc.
  • Use Twitter to communicate quickly with friends any of our “calls to action”
  • Create your own ‘community’ at www.tangle.com or www.ning.com

STEP 3: GET CONNECTED

Reach out to like-minded friends at your work, neighborhood, church, school, sports leagues, etc. to join your “social circle” [See “Step 2”]. You will be surprised at how fast it grows!

STEP 4: GET ENGAGED

Yes, we all are busy; however, too much is at stake to remain silent.

Whether it is just 5 minutes or 5 hours, YOU can make a difference. We recommend any (or all!) of the following:

  • MONITOR: Sign up to be on the email lists of your elected officials. Is their rhetoric matching their votes? You can help us fight this battle by being the “eyes & ears” on the ground.Submit your comments/findings to citizensforabetteralabama@gmail.com.
  • MOBILIZE: Add your elected officials’ office phone numbers to your speed dial list.
    For contact information, go to:

    SENATE:  334-242-7800
    HOUSE: 334-242-7600

  • MEETINGS: Attend City and County Council meetings (NOTE: This is where the casino bosses gain traction early on), Townhall meetings, rallies and special events. Take notes. Ask pointed questions.Videotape their speeches. Help us hold them accountable!
    [For help or to submit your findings, email us at citizensforabetteralabama@gmail.com]

  • MEDIA: Write a Letter to the Editor. A 2-3 paragraph letter will do! You will be surprised how often they are published!
  • MANPOWER: Talk to your friends, family members and neighbors and get them involved, too! Ask them to sign up to our email alerts!
  • MONEY: As non-profits, we do not have the money to go up against the casino cartel’s endless TV and radio campaigns. However, if you feel led to give, please know that every dollar helps, whether its $5 or $25 – collectively, 100% of your money will go to stopping predatory gambling in Alabama.
  • MOMENTS OF PRAYER: We need your prayers!  Our elected leaders, as well as members of Citizens for a Better Alabama covet your prayers. Pray for their health, safety, their families and their diligence to not compromise on doing what is right.
