Action! 8.23-8.26.2018

We aren’t blind. We aren’t fooled. And we know our momentum will carry us forward - as long as we remain committed. With more lies, more indictments, more plea deals, and more corruption, we fail if we fail to act.

Let’s start by being strongly opposed to the appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime position on the Supreme Court.

Let’s continue by pouring our energy into writing postcards, knocking on doors, sending texts, and making phone calls.

We must Resist. Rally. March. Call. Write. Act. And VOTE!

Resistance Labs is committed to supporting organizers on the ground who continue the struggle for progress. This week we will be sending over 40,000 texts to help mobilize and engage new activist for Unite For Justice’s national day of action on August 26th, 2018. Rallies will be happening in nearly all 50 states to fight against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and demand that our senators act NOW to protect our most fundamental rights and freedoms, like voting rights, civil rights, women’s rights, and more. We can’t afford to wait–—help us support this work and sign up to get texting today!

Senate Republicans plan to hold a vote on the proposed appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime position on the Supreme Court.

If you can do nothing else, call our Senators. We hear that calls to senators are not as strong or as frequent — and some senators are considering voting for him because of that.

You can call (use our scripts) to Senator Feinstein and Senator Harris. But that’s not enough.

We urge you to call your friends and family members in West Virginia, Indiana, North Dakota, Alaska, Maine, and Alabama to encourage them to call their senators.

In particular, Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski say that they aren’t hearing from many callers — so they are looking toward voting for Mr. Kavanaugh. We need you to reach out again and again to encourage your friends, family members (even relative strangers!) to make those phone calls.

Judge Kavanaugh has a difficult record on Roe v. Wade, Presidential culpability, impeachment, torture of prisoners, and  Civil Rights issues. His full record is being hidden from evaluation.

Continued calls help reinforce both Democratic and Republican Senators who prefer a moderate and thoughtful Supreme Court. Mr. Kavanaugh’s own advertising indicates that he is a ‘strict constructionist’ and therefore too rigid to find ways to apply our constitution to new situations.

Encourage your friends and family to make calls respectful and firm calls to their senators. Quiet voices have impact - let’s all call.

Canvassing is the #1 way to reach all Democratic voters, particularly in a battleground District like CA-07 for Dr. Ami Bera. It's okay if you've never done this before, here are the nuts and bolts: We will have a training at the beginning of the shift and then go out to pre-identified households to talk about the November elections.

BRING: a water bottle, your lunch, a smartphone or tablet with the PDI Mobile Connect app downloaded, a pen, sunscreen, a hat, comfortable clothing and shoes for walking, and a great attitude. Other materials will be provided.

TO PREPARE: Download the app PDI Mobile Connect and we will provide login info upon arrival.

SHARE A RIDE: Here is the carpool link for 8-25: During warm weather we like to get to the Bera office by 10 AM. That means most carpools leave Sonoma County by 8 AM.

For more information contact: Karen D’Or at

Future canvas dates: September 22, October 6, October 20 and Nov 3.
