Demonstrating our values (not just talking about them)
An interesting new group intends to try a new approach to both activating the Democratic base and persuading others: getting numbers together to do public works as part of primary campaigns. They're hoping to get out more left-leaners in "red" parts of swing states (e.g., PA), but this could go some distance toward helping even right-leaners realize that Democrats share basic American civic values and concern about their communities. Every little bit helps, in these divisive times.
