Can't Attend?  Host a House Party!

If you can't make it to our party in Milwaukee, consider hosting a house party in your hometown for Rethinking Schools.  It's easy! 

After you e-mail Kris to let us know you're hosting a party, she'll send you a stack of magazines and other materials to hand out at your party. Then, all you have to do is remember these 6 P's:

  1. Personally invite your friends
  2. Clean your pad (optional)
  3. Provide snacks and drinks
  4. Make the pitch.  Simply describe to your friends why Rethinking Schools is important to you, and why you think your friends should support us.
  5. Pass the hat.
  6. Party on.

It's as easy as that!  If you need more information or advice about hosting a house party, contact Karen Shain, who will be happy to share her tips and tricks with you.
