Four ways you can make a difference and help Blue Jean Nation succeed.
Spread the word. There are countless ways to do it. Make a homemade flyer and have some printed up, and hand them out. We can provide a simple format that involves printing two pages back to back and then cutting them in half, producing a handout that’s nothing fancy but does what it needs to do. Contact us and we’ll send you the template. Make homemade yard signs using the themes you see on our home page, and put them up in your neighborhood. Make a larger sign and find a friend or neighbor to join you in becoming a walking billboard at a busy intersection or some other heavily-trafficked place. Become a walking advertisement for Blue Jean Nation by wearing one of our t-shirts. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know about available sizes and cost. Go where the people are. Organize a group to march for Blue Jean Nation in a local parade or set up a display at your county fair, farmers market or other popular community events. Write letters to the editor of your local paper about what we are cooking up. Call in to your favorite radio show and mention us and what we are up to. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and share our posts with your friends. Email your contacts to personally plug Blue Jean Nation and invite them to check out this website.
Belong. Become part of the community of commoners working to get we the people back in the driver’s seat of our government. Join the Nation. And help us build a following by urging people you know to do the same.
Invest. Put your money where your hopes and dreams are.
Become an ambassador. Take the lead in your own back yard and start a neighborhood Blue Jean Nation chapter or club. Put the party back in politics with food, drink, music, dancing or games while introducing neighbors to Blue Jean Nation in your home, or organize a fun event at a favorite local gathering place. Knock on doors. Make phone calls. Use our creed and five aims or one or two of our videos to get people thinking and stimulate discussion. But start by listening. Candidates for office and other political activists spend so much time telling people what they should care about, and comparatively little time asking what they do care about. If you want to change politics, more hearing is a good place to start. Whether you have a few hours a week to spare or a few days a year, there’s so much you can do. And don’t forget, politics is supposed to be about public service. Think up ways to perform service to your community.
