Action! 10.29-10.31.2018

No one said it would be easy. It’s been a lot of hard work, and you’ve given so much.

The determination you have shown over the past two years to hold close our values and resist efforts to make us complacent, or fearful - that determination makes us all proud. This week is the culmination of all our work. Vote. Volunteer. And persist.

We have the momentum. Let’s use it.

Violence. Lies. Corruption.

Time to make some calls.

Use our Phone Scripts 10.29-10.31.2018, and sign up for Amplify. We fuel the blue wave by our commitment to standing up for our constitution.
