Today’s Action: Texting and Letter Writing to Get Out The Vote!

We are less than four months away from the November election and it’s time for all-hands-on-deck. We’ve been fighting off Trump’s horrible policies for four years and battling against Senate Republican’s blood oath to the far right. But now, it’s time to channel our anger, our loss, and our keen sense of injustice and put all our effort into VOTING THEM OUT.

Our job for the next four months is to mobilize Democrats who don’t usually vote, Independents still making decisions, and Republicans who are fed up with Trump. But with the pandemic spiraling out of control, some of our usual tactics aren’t safe. Luckily, a lot of options can be done from your own home.

The good folks of Indivisible are organizing text bank training tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 8:30 pm EST / 5:30 pm PST. Sign up here to reserve your spot

Can’t make it? Join the good folks of SwingLeft for a virtual letter-writing party with other progressives in your area, or start your own with the resources at Vote Forward

Text banking is easy, and is actually done from your computer, not your phone (so no hand-cramping, personal identity exposure, or phone bill concerns needed)! Indivisible guides you through the conversations with pre-scripted language, and offers you training and tips as you go.

And letter writing is completely personal – sharing with others why voting this November matters to YOU. SwingLeft and Vote Forward provide you with the names and letter format you need to easily write down your story.

You truly don’t need to be a political expert to engage in Get Out The Vote volunteer work. You JUST need to care about defeating Trump and flipping the Senate for Democrats…and we’re pretty sure that desire applies to 100% of our community.

Sign up for Indivisible text bank training Tuesday, July 7 at 8:30 pm EST / 5:30 pm PST. Can’t attend? Join a SwingLeft virtual letter-writing party…or hold your own party (even a party of one) by signing up at Vote Forward.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding the NFL and team owners change the offensive name of the Washington Redskins, 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.
