Sanders launches online grassroots platform

Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign has released an online platform for grassroots groups and supporters to connect directly with the campaign.

The platform, dubbed Connect, is aimed at social media activists and provides them with up-to-date information on the campaign, and important action alerts. It also allows online grassroots groups to speak directly with the campaign.

“Bernie supporters all across America have built a movement of people online who are committed to spreading Bernie’s message. Connect with Bernie is an initiative to coordinate online grassroots efforts across the nation in support of Bernie Sanders,” the campaign said.

“When you connect, the campaign will be able to get in touch with you to make sure you can help them spread the word about our country’s most pressing issues.”

The platform also features a section where members of the community can make blog posts about the campaign, submit artwork and pose poll questions.

Administrators of online Facebook and other social media groups supporting Bernie Sanders’ bid for the presidency are encouraged to sign up for the platform.
