Change CAN Happen

Hello and welcome to Cambridge-Somervile for Change! You are part of the grassroots initiative that marks the start of a new and different future, one where our great nation is led by a man whose ideals we admire, whose lessons we are excited to pass on to future generations.

In the simple words of our next President, YES WE CAN. We CAN make a difference in voter turnout by going door-to-door in New Hampshire. We CAN increase volunteer support for causes we believe in by phonebanking right here in Massachusetts. We CAN get to know our neighbors and come away delighted at how much we have in common. We did, and we can continue our efforts.

Through this site we hope to harness the energy of all that we can do. We hope to continue to build a community of volunteers in Cambridge and Somerville who know exactly what we can accomplish and who work together to make the changes we need.

You have no doubt heard that the outcome of the election does not signal the end of our work. Thank you for visiting this site, for taking that mantra to heart. We urge you to take it now into action, and to stay involved with the movement that you helped to build. Visit this site often to learn about the happenings in Cambridge and Somerville and how you CAN continue to make a difference in the world.

We look forward to seeing you at a house party, round table discussion, or other event in the very near future. Check back often for updates to the calendar.

As Barack Obama so eloquently said, "the time for change has come... and we can choose the promise of change over the power of the status quo." Together, we CAN be the change, we can make the world a better and safer place, we can buck the status quo. The election was just the beginning; this is our time.

First, I just want to make sure the comment system works since there don't appear to be any others.
Second, I think this is a great idea.
I have friends hosting an Obama event this weekend in Somerville (Sunday) but, since it's through the main obama site, there's nothing on the calendar here. Would it be possible to be a clearinghouse here for ALL events related to what we're interested in?
Seems like a useful thing given the transition from election to what's next that's happening right now.
A lot of people are probably interested in attending events so we should all be helping to make that as easy as possible.
Let me know if I can help with web site management. It can be hard to keep things rolling but I think we can all do a little and keep people engaged.


Cambridge-Somerville for Change is an all-volunteer community group dedicated to harnessing the grassroots energy and spirit of change inspired by the Obama campaign. Our organizing work includes electoral and issue-based campaigns at the local, state, and national level. Our members have chosen to work on promoting economic fairness, comprehensive health care reform, creating policies that conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, provide for fair and adequate access to public transportation, and promoting in-state tuition for immigrant youth.

This is an organization built by and for you, the community, and we look forward to your participation and feedback. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions about getting involved, please email
