On the evening of February 28th we *very casually* gathered in a beautiful private loft downtown to learn about birddogging. The amazing Jennifer Flynn Walker - one of the leaders of the “progressive strike force that saved the ACA” - gave our Broads a tactical training on how to get *real* commitments from candidates for office and elected officials.
What exactly is birddogging you ask? Remember when two women confronted Senator Flake in an elevator during the Kavanaugh hearings, demanding accountability for his vote? That's birddogging. We discussed specific tactics and methods for turning “democrats” into actual champions like dreamgirl/firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Jennifer Flynn Walker directs the Mobilization and Advocacy program at The Center for Popular Democracy. She's responsible for federal healthcare, tax policy, and advocacy, and also works to develop new ways to mobilize affiliates in federal campaigns.
