please use our scripts Phone Scripts 11.1-11.7.2018 to call our Members of Congress.

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.

And then work with us to change Congress.


November 5
Texting to Millennial Voters Across the Country

A great new texting opportunity to get out low-propensity millennial votes across the country. NextGen is spearheading the campaign in support of progressive candidates up and down the ballot in many states. Currently they are texting voters in CA, FL, MI, NH, PA, VA, and WI to remind them to vote for progressive candidates on Election Day. It utilizes Slack and Relay.

The training and script are easy to master.

November 5
Want to call to California non-voters?

Phone banking is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reach voters and empower them to vote.

By having one-on-one conversations with people, we’re able to inform them of key Congressional races happening in their district and where they can go to vote. You’ll be provided with everything you need to make calls -- all you need is a laptop and phone. Can you help me get the word out in these final days before Voting Day?

Yes, I can phone bank from home to help get out the vote on November 6!

You’ll automatically be connected to often skipped Democratic voters in key districts that may be less likely to vote in a midterm election. The purpose of calling is to make sure they know about the Democratic candidates running against Trump’s top Republicans in their area and empower them to vote on November 6.

November 6 – Election Day
Election Day Virtual Phone Banks to Battleground Districts!

Tuesday, November 6, 2018
Shifts: 7 – 10 AM, 10 AM – 1 PM, 1 - 4 PM, 4 - 7 PM
Sign up: https://events.mobilizeamerica.io/slsonoma/event/63890/

Our last chance to contact voters!

Please join us for a Swing Left Sonoma County Virtual Phone Bank from your home. There is still time to ensure that all Democratic voters get to the polls!

Research shows that volunteer phone banking can 'move the needle' 2.5 points during an election. That is a huge impact given the thin margins expected in many of the Battleground Districts this November.

Once you RSVP, one of our Sonoma County Hub Directors will be in touch with instructions and priorities.


IMMIGRATION ACTIONS 10-31.png

Our work continues through November 6.
Every day our calendar changes. There are more postcard parties, canvassing, texting, and phone calling campaigns for the November election. Just check out our calendar!

Indivisible Sonoma County collaborates with other Indivisible groups and resistance organizations around the county and throughout California to expand the ways you can help us make a difference and vote people into Congress who will protect our democracy. And we put all those opportunities on our calendar. Easy to use, and easy to find ways to resist!
