Action! 10.11-10.14.2018

26 days. Less than 4 weeks - and every moment counts!
Let’s make certain there are lots of votes to count!

Time to Resist. Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!

ACTIONS

  1. Volunteer to write postcards, make phone calls, send texts, register voters, and knock on doors.

  2. Make your calls. And don’t forget to call our own Senators, Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein to remind them of the children separated from their parents - and somehow lost in the system. Mention climate change. Your voice makes a big difference. Use our Phone Scripts 10.11-10.14.2018.

  3. Work for the election - because without your enthusiasm, too many people will stay home.

MUST BRING A LAPTOP OR A TABLET, A CELL PHONE AND EARBUDS!

If you have been waiting to get involved - now is the time! Join the Sonoma County Democratic Party Red to Blue Phone banking Team, play phone bank bingo and be part of the Big Blue Wave for 2018.


Call to Fight Voter Suppression
Election officials in various states have expanded purges of their voter rolls, moving millions of voters across the country onto so-called "Inactive" lists, sometimes even if they voted as recently as 2017.

What can we do? Andrea Miller of the Center for Common Ground and the NAACP has created virtual, nonpartisan phonebanks for calling people who are listed as "Inactive" or “Unregistered,” to ask them to check their voting status and to re-register where necessary before the November elections. The phonebanks are directed at communities of color in many states, including Virginia, Georgia, Wisconsin and Texas; as many as 16 states will be included by September

We encourage you to join the next Zoom Meeting with Andrea Miller, to find out more about these phonebanks and learn how to start making calls to "Inactive" voters. These meetings will occur every Thursday, 5 - 6 PM, Pacific time). If you're interested in joining the next Zoom meeting, please contact Lisa Ferino at lisaferino@gmail.com, and she will send you the link.

Let me emphasize: We need to make hundreds of thousands of calls by the middle of October. (At the same time--we don't want to publicize the phone banks on social media, so please do not post this email nor the phone bank links themselves on any social media platform).

If you wish to join the phone bank effort right now, please let me know, and I'll send you the link to the phone bank, and to our Mobilize.io group.

Door Hangers and Slate Card Mailers have arrived and we are ready to label!

We've got over 18,000 hangers and mailers to get prepared and out the door. Candidates have placed their orders and we want to get the door hangers in their hands for canvassing this weekend. After that, we'll start our mailing project. 49,000 labels in all...

We welcome you whether you are new to this or veterans of our label parties. It's kinda like an old-fashioned envelope stuffing party, but instead, we stick labels on things! This is a community project that our volunteers enjoy while we reach out to voters and help Democrats win in Sonoma County.

This schedule may change depending on how fast it goes! You can drop in and stay as you can, but if you sign up for a shift, we can message you if we need to keep you up to date on our progress.
