Winning Hearts and Minds in Idaho Falls

The theory of change behind Living Liberally is that you can sometimes connect to people through culture in ways you can't simply through argument.
Look to Idaho Falls -- a chapter in one of the nation's reddest states -- for proof of that.
Idaho Falls sponsored a Screening Liberally event in December with the local Occupy group: “Inside Job” was shown with a panel discussion afterwards. Two GOP State Representatives attended, and one of them -- Rep. Janice McGeachin -- voted this week against an anti-Occupy bill in committee. In her statement, she mentioned the movie as her reason for doing so.
Our gatherings can speak to new people, can change hearts and minds and can make a difference. Thanks, Rep McGeachin and thank you to the liberals of Idaho Falls.
