On February 17, the first gathering of local registrants, family and friends assembled in Nipomo, San Luis Obispo County. The CA RSOL members there intend to meet regularly to enjoy a space that welcomes all to the educational process of CA RSOL. The 10 attendees shared food and in-depth discussions regarding the registry and how to encourage other registrants into forming similar gatherings. These mobilizations will help to build the CA RSOL movement into a cohesive organization that can address any issue confronting our livelihood as citizens of this state. In mass and in real time we will be the force able to facilitate change that will serve us all well.
How we are doing this: (1) a willing registrant and his wife offered their home as a secure meeting site, (2) additional registrants and host sat down to pick a date, time and menu for first meeting, (3) registrants invited other registrants, their families and friends via phone or in person, (4) on the day of the event, we just showed up.
Just that simple. Now there are 10 people excited about our March get together. What did we do at the February meeting? (1) share knowledge about success achieved already by our statewide coordinator and update on tiered registry bill that CA RSOL is advocating for this year, (2) shared great food from the barbeque of our gracious host and his wife, (3) shared our stories, (4) shared thoughts on how we could help the organization grow and prosper, and (5) shared a day being normal!
We showed up and we shared the registry experience because we’re all in this together and together we can bring the light of education to those that live in the darkness of fear. We are all responsible for helping ourselves to a more enriching life. Mobilize now for our future! The next meeting in Nipomo will take place on March 24.
