Every six weeks CUIP’s president, Jackie Salit, hosts a national conference call for new and veteran political activists. One hundred and fifty independent leaders from as many as 40 states participate in each of these conference calls, making them the largest regular gathering of independent voters in the country.
Jackie Salit responded to questions sent in by independents from around the country which ranged from questions about Salit’s thoughts on Donald Trump’s election to tactics for organizing, about political reform campaigns, about the role of candidates in our movement, and about how independents describe and talk about who we are.
What happened on election day? Where do we go from here? Salit responds to questions in a special post-presidential election call attended by 400 independents from around the country.
” The American people are looking for change. They wanted to change everything and they keep finding that they can’t. ….they decided to change how they voted…
210 independents from 42 states participated in a call where Salit responded to over 100 questions sent in by independents. Questions about how to best use our votes during the election; the possibility of an independent candidate emerging; how to build coalitions; the issue of party vs. movement and much more.
