We have options to spread the word and get people engaged in our grassroots campaign. ORDER YOUR DVDs NOW! You can host a house party with a virtual Kathleen. Gather your neighbors, friends and family, put out the snacks, and view a DVD featuring Kathleen’s speeches and responses to questions about important issues.
