The group started small but is growing rapidly, working to reach as diverse an audience as possible. Soon after the launch of the Web site, uncaucus.org, a member translated the entire thing into Spanish. This week, interactive features are being added and a candidates' "gallery" with short bios and platform descriptions is in the works. There's also a Facebook group that, as of Tuesday, had more than 330 members.
Next on the agenda, says Withers, will be public gatherings — both to expand on the online discussion, and to bring in audiences that prefer face-to-face settings. Some candidates, declared and not, have also expressed an interest in working with the Uncaucus, she says, and Cicilline was intrigued and may offer feedback.
