MEETING WITH A LEADER SCRIPT
Thank you so much for meeting with me! (Ask about them: How they are doing? What have they been working on?)
So what we are trying to do is build a coalition of groups on the left in order to create a party for the 99%. Polls show that the majority of Americans agree with progressive issues and want a major new party. The majority of Americans feel that they are not being represented by the two major parties. Despite Bernie Sanders’ continued efforts, the Democratic Party remains firmly in neoliberal control. It is clear that the Democratic Party is not going to be a party of working people.
So just like Bernie said, “Not me, us.” It is up to us to build that major new party. In order to do that, we are building a coalition. We are huge fans of your group and admire your efforts. We hope you would be interested in becoming a part of our coalition.
