Action! 10.15-10.17.2018

While this administration fiddles, our planet is done with warnings. And so are we.

There are three 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. There is still time. Volunteer to write postcards, make phone calls, send texts, register voters, and knock on doors.

  2. Make your calls. Take the time to make the calls. Each call helps our Members of Congress to speak out and speak boldly. Each call reminds them of our American values - justice, the rule of law, equal opportunity. Use our Phone Scripts 10.15-10.17.2018.

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