Obama Campaign Looking for Organizers

Steve Hildebrand of Obama For America has been kind enough to send me regular updates on the Obama campaign, including their new search for campaign operatives, they're just like community organizers! Here is what Steve wrote:

Dear ,
I wanted to get in touch with you again about the upcoming Camp Obama sessions we're holding in Illinois.

As you might have heard, John McCain and his Republican surrogates used their convention to attack Barack and disparage his work as a community organizer.

What they don't get is that ordinary people working together built this movement for change and will lead our campaign to victory in November.

That's why we've had such an amazing response to our Camp Obama sessions so far.

Supporters of all ages and backgrounds, some new to politics and some seasoned veterans, have expressed tremendous enthusiasm for the opportunity to learn the basic organizing principles of this movement and become Deputy Field Organizers in battleground states.

We can't do this without you, and there is still time to sign up. Learn more and apply for a Camp Obama session now.

And here is the letter that Steve was good enough to forward to me:

Dear ,
I want to tell you about an exciting program we're launching in Illinois. It's called Camp Obama.

During this two-day session, people like you will be taking their support for this movement to the next level by learning the organizing principles that this campaign and our movement for change are built on.

Camp Obama attendees will receive real world organizing experience that will have a direct impact on this election. Graduates of Camp Obama will go on to become Deputy Field Organizers who will lead this campaign to victory in crucial battleground states around the country.

Find out more about this exciting opportunity to take a leadership role in this movement for change.

By participating in Camp Obama, you'll get the kind of experience that Barack got as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago, where he learned that real change happens from the bottom up.

That experience transformed Barack's life and made him who he is today.

Camp Obama is your chance to put those very same principles into action -- to win this election and to strengthen democracy in communities around the country.

After completing the program, you'll be required to work as a Deputy Field Organizer in a battleground state where you'll be organizing supporters and helping lead our grassroots Get Out The Vote operation.

Apply for a spot at a Camp Obama near you and become a leader in our movement for change:

This campaign relies on the passion and enthusiasm of ordinary supporters, but it needs leaders who can organize those supporters and turn their enthusiasm into votes on Election Day.

Camp Obama is your chance to step up and become a leader in this movement.

Each note also had a link to DONATE!
Just thought that people should know what they're up to.
