Establish A Chapter
Establish a Chapter of the LPDOC
Whether as one person or a collective, as a chapter of the LPDOC you are expected to:
Develop and retain a visible presence in your community
Coordinate actions on important dates
Do community outreach
Coordinate letter writing and phone call campaigns
Hold a minimum of one organizing meeting a month
Help raise funds for Leonard’s defense fund.
It is important that you have a phone number and address that can be published so people in your area can contact you. You may want a voice mailbox and a post office box for privacy reasons. At least one person in your group must have access to e-mail.
We also ask that you send us a short update at least quarterly to let us know how you are doing and you’ll be expected to submit an annual financial report. You’ll receive more detail on such things once the registration process is complete.
If you decide to form a registered LPDOC chapter, we want you to be prepared for a sometimes difficult yet rewarding experience. Be advised that operating a LPDOC chapter can and should be enjoyable, but also necessitates a very strong commitment to the struggle, involves responsibility for your group and to the LPDOC, and entails a lot of hard work.
The LPDOC is available to assist you with your chapter’s needs. We will do what we can to ensure your success. Please contact us with any questions or concerns: email@example.com.
