Action! 7.9-7.11.2018

Every call, every text, every postcard from you reassures voters that they are not alone, and that others rely on their participation this election. In order to have real immigration policies, real health insurance plans, and real environmental security, we must have real representatives in Congress and in State Houses that defend our common good.

What can we do? What are we doing?

Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!

Postcarding for Lisa Brown for Congress in State of Washington

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
4–6:30PM
Sebastopol
RSVP for location/directions: Gina Brown [mangoblue@comcast.net]

Send postcards to voters in Washington state for Lisa Brown.

Kick off Sebastopol weekly events to help in this primary campaign through texting, phone banking and writing postcards. Write postcards to overseas military and other voters. It’s critical we get these done before July 20, when primary voting begins. The appeal of a real person taking the time to buy a postcard, write a message and add a stamp as part of a grassroots campaign, has proven to be a very effective Democratic tool.

Postcard from Home in Sonoma Valley
Here is an opportunity to begin writing to Independent & NPP (no party preference) voters in CA-22 in support of ANDREW JANZ for Congress.  He is trying to unseat Trump’s lapdog, Devin Nunes. Nunes won this district in 2016 by 35 points, but Trump only won this district by less than 10 points, which makes Nunes potentially vulnerable for 2018. (PLEASE NOTE: The messaging for this campaign cannot include any references to The Democratic Party or The Blue Wave.)

Please respond directly to bridgetflocco@gmail.com and indicate how many postcards you would like to commit to writing on behalf of Andrew Janz over the next 3 months (minimum request is 20). These can be written at home or during an upcoming postcarding session (with you covering the cost of supplies & postage).

ALL cards will be collected on/before Sept. 25th and mailed back to Janz's campaign (so that they can mail to voters from an in-district address).
