Townhall.com readers held two local Conservative Townhall MeetUps and you've done an amazing job getting organized.   The New York Times, LA Times, New York Observer, Philadelphia Inquirer and several other papers have already noticed the grassroots movement you're starting.

Next Tuesday, February 3rd is the next meeting in your city. We need you

Nationwide, nearly 20,000 Conservatives in over 500 cities have signed up to network and organize at the local level.  Click here to find out where.


Conservative meetup in San Diego, CA
With the passage of the Medicare bill, campaign finance reform, and runaway spending in Washington, it's never been more important for conservatives to unite in defense of the principles of limited government, traditional values, free enterprise, and a strong national defense.
A lot of the media coverage lately has been focused on what the Left is doing online but quietly you've been building your own grassroots team.
And you're starting to get the credit you deserve.
In fact, the CEO of MeetUp told CNN's Inside Politics last month that you have grown the Townhall MeetUp faster than any other MeetUp topic has started out.  11,000 in the first month. Over 19,000 by this morning.

The nation's newspapers are noticing too.
New York Observer: "On the evening of Jan. 6, the Manhattan Lounge on Second Avenue and 89th Street became the amber-lit sanctuary of that rarest breed of New Yorker: the unapologetic conservative."
The Northern Virginia Journal: "The meet-ups for Townhall.com - the online wing of the conservative Heritage Foundation - have grown faster in the last two months than any other gatherings in the Web site's 18-month history, said Meetup.com spokesman Myles Weissleder."
Los Angeles Times: "In New York, the first Townhall meetup drew about 40 people to a hip bar on the Upper East Side, where they spent more than an hour exchanging political ideas ? and a sense of relief at encountering other conservatives in the predominantly Democratic city."
There's no substitute for activism at the local level in the fight for American values and we need you.  
If you haven't decided to get involved yet, now is the time.
If you've already signed up, then you need to RSVP.
