It's simple. Just wear the PDR button and give some to others. Click here to see why this is really important and how to get buttons!
But to really get involved you'll want to collect signatures from other people too--your friends and relatives, neighbors and co-workers. And then you can show them they are not alone in having these revolutionary aspirations by showing them all the signatures. We make banners like this one (click here for a zoomable pdf file to see some signatures) and display them to the public.
But why stop with just people you already know? Here in Boston we collect signatures on the sidewalk and in front of supermarkets from people just passing by or grocery shopping. We have found that of the people who stop to read "This I Believe," about 80% sign it. Click here to see some photos of how we do it and click here to read personal stories.
TALK WITH US, AND OTHERS IN YOUR AREA
It's more fun to join with others in your neck of the woods to make plans or just share ideas about how to collect signatures from a majority of people living there. To help you do this, we have set up an email list (click here to see how to subscribe) and a web forum (click here to go to it), organized by geographical region within the United States.
You are hereby encouraged, as an individual or as a group of people in any organization you may choose to create, to do whatever you think helps advance the cause of collecting signatures for "This I Believe" and displaying them to the public. Use your imagination. Use trial and error. Share your experiences--both good and not so good--with others on the email list or web forum so that others can copy the best ideas. You do not need, nor should you request, permission from anybody to do anything; just do it. Only please do not claim to represent other individuals or organizations without their permission.
Also, please see our Q&A pamphlet, pages 4 and 5, (click here) for more ways you can get involved.
JOIN YOUR LOCAL ASSEMBLY OF EGALITARIANS OR START ONE IF ONE DOESN'T ALREADY EXIST
