Our collectively curated news sites allow you to find and share information that you think people should know. Your voice is amplified through the Coffee Party network — in fact one of new team members reached 1000 people in her first day — and if you enjoy it, we'll invite you to take on more responsibility.
1. Be the Media Strategy/Training Call TODAY Sun. June 2 at 2 pm ET (11 am PT)
I will be leading this call to train and recruit the volunteers who will operate the Coffee Party's newly integrated 99 Percent Media network, which includes Coffee Party News, Twitter, and several Facebook pages, including the virtual town hall that started it all: a Facebook page with 415 K fans. Register for the call here if you haven't already.
Many of the news sites have corresponding radio shows that allow you to talk to fellow Americans across the U.S. Three of them are listed below.
The Bottom Line airs every Sunday at 5 pm ET (2 pm PT). This week Jessica will be talking about National Coffee Party Week, for which she is organizing an Open Mic event in St. Paul, MN. There are organizers planning different kinds of events around the country, most of them at the local coffee houses. Jessica will have guests on the show to talk about why they have decided to participate by organizing locally, and she loves to get callers with something to share or something on their mind.

3. Don Manning on Coffee Party Radio Mon. at 11 pm ET
Speaking of America with Don Manning airs on Mondays at 11 pm ET (8 pm PT). This week's focus is the recall election in Wisconsin. Guest Ryan Clayton, one of the original Coffee Party founders, will report on his recent visit to Wisconsin. Will outside money keep One Percent poster boy Scott Walker in the Governor's mansion to hack away at the rights of working people and organized labor? Or will the challenger, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett send him to the U-Haul store? Don wants to hear from you no matter your perspective!

The Middle Ground airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT). On June 5th, author Michael Charney and filmmaker Eric Byler (me) welcome Mary Johnson, author of the memoir "An Unquenchable Thirst." We'll talk about the role of religion in politics in America, and if there is news from Wisconsin during the hour, we'll talk about that too.
