Today’s Action: Final day of the #RNCTurnoff – upload a video of your pledge to vote!

Today is the last day of the Republican National Convention, a virtual parade of the right wing politicians, serial liars, and Trump family members that have smothered this country with their open white supremacy, corporate cronyism, and science denial the past four years.

For your sake, we hope you don’t tune in. But also for Trump’s, whose fixation on viewer numbers is well-documented, and he doesn’t disclude the hate-watchers in his tally. But do more than simply avoiding the RNC: join the #RNCTurnoff by committing time to Get Out The Vote tonight during primetime hours!

#RNCTurnoff goal: Record a 60-second video explaining why you are choosing to vote for Biden/Harris this November, and upload to all your social media platforms.

We’re facing pandemic-fueled GOP voter suppression tactics like we’ve never seen, on top of their standard fare. 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.

So if you’ve committed to voting for Biden/Harris, tell the world why. Every voter has a unique perspective, a unique path to committing to a candidate, and it’s probable there’s someone in your social circle who needs inspiration from you to register or commit to the act.

Upload a video of yourself, explaining why you have committed to voting for the Democratic ticket this November. Upload to all your social media accounts and include #RNCTurnoff!

PS: Hungry for more? Didn’t hit your #RNCTurnoff goals on previous nights? Write letters, phone bank, or text bank to Get Out The Vote!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to fire the cops who thanked an AR-15-wielding white supremacist murderer, 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.
