Today’s Action: Phonebank for the Democratic Party

In the middle of a pandemic, we cannot safely canvas door to door to save our nation from Trump’s racist, bigoted, dictatorial re-election. But having one-on-one conversations with voters and would-be voters is the single most effective way to sway a mind, inspire participation, and win this election.

Phone banking with swing state voters is now our single greatest asset for defeating Trump and flipping the Senate.

And here’s the good news: you don’t need to be a political expert to make these calls. You just need to care about defeating Trump and breaking the majority in the Senate that obeys his every whim – and every single call you make brings us one step closer to that vision of the future.

Phone bank for the Democratic Party, and usher in sweeping change this November – shifts happening every day between now and November 3! A Democratic victory at the federal, state, and local level will take ALL of us chipping in!

We’re facing: extreme delays in USPS during a time when more voters than ever plan to vote absentee, valid fears about visiting or volunteering at polling stations, AND the usual frenzy of GOP voter suppression tactics.

All in all, our election system is in crisis, and the voters most likely to be burdened, discouraged, and blocked from voting are Democrats in swing/red states where we need the highest possible turnout. It’s time to put in some volunteer hours like your life depends on it – because the reality is, for many people in this country, it does.

There’s no time to delay – election day is around the corner! Phone bank for the Democratic Party and help usher in a post-Trump era. There are shifts every day!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling states to reject Trump’s voter fraud lies and institute vote-by-mail, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
