Tell us what you think so we can make future events better!

The 2024 election is shaping up to be yet another Most Important Election of our Lifetime. If you are interested in getting more involved, please consider attending the More in '24 Regional Retreat in Alicante, Spain!

The sessions will provide an opportunity to meet other leaders and super-volunteers from across the region, share and build our organizational knowledge, and empower ourselves to create a blue wave from abroad in November 2024.

This will be my third regional meeting and I can't wait! If you would like more information before RSVPing, please feel free to email me at [email protected].

Thank you for reading and we hope to see you soon!

Democratically yours,
