Today’s Action: Send text messages for Midterms, today through November 6!

It’s Halloween…and you know what’s scary? White supremacy and a president who values corporate profit over millions of actual human lives. With midterms just six days away, we need every single Democrat committing to getting out the progressive vote to fight the monsters in the White House and Congress.

But we know, for some, making phone calls and general face-to-face interaction is also scary…or at least, uncomfortable enough that it’s easy to find an excuse not to do it.

So just for those individuals, today’s action is as non-spooky as possible: send text messages for midterms. You don’t have to talk to anyone, leave your house, or even shower. (Though…you should shower.)

Flippable has multiple text-banking campaigns running today through November 6, and they’re all vitally important. Choose one or several – sign up now and mark your calendar!

Text for Texas Democrats TODAY – November 6. Help Beto O’Rourke kick Ted Cruz out of the Senate and flip three seats for the House!

Text for North Carolina Democrats TODAY – November 6. Flip three seats in the House!

Text for Pennsylvania Democrats November 3 – 6. Seven House seats are hotly contested swing districts — secure them all for Democrats!

Don’t wake up on November 7 to another two years of GOP control of Congress wishing you had done more (because that’s a terrifying thought). Instead, join the #BlueWave and Flippable for a final push this week, and then celebrate your efforts when we’ve flipped the House!
