Action! 9.20-9.23.2018

Were you looking away?
There’s good news that can keep us going. Efforts to ensure fair elections, to ensure the Census is accurate, to guarantee that we can know who donates to PACs - these have all been supported this week.
Were you thinking this election is over?
We continue to work toward getting out the vote, encouraging new voters, restoring people’s faith in the country.
With your help, we build the blue wave.

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

ACTIONS

  1. Volunteer to write postcards, make phone calls, send texts, register voters, and knock on doors.

  2. Attend the General Meeting on September 24.

  3. Make your calls. And don’t forget to use our scripts and call our own Senators, Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein to talk about the Kavanaugh appointment. Your voice makes a big difference.


We have fewer than 50 days to make an amazing impact on the House and Senate races.

We do that by contacting voters: writing postcards, sending texts and emails, making phone calls, and knocking on doors.

Get started by reading Indivisible’s brand-new Guide for Winning Elections! This voter contact guide is your one-stop-shop for planning all of your electoral work. Check it out here and share with your friends and colleagues.

Here’s a sample of the many opportunities for us to help everyone vote. And here’s a link to the calendar, and to still more opportunities here: Election Support Activities.

THE LAST WEEKEND
Canvass for Janz >> Flip CA-22!!

Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day. Each of us has the power to make a big difference in CA-10 by talking to voters.

Be there when it matters: http://bit.ly/2MFnqrM


There are more postcard parties, canvassing, texting, and phone calling campaigns for the November election. Just check out our calendar! There are new opportunities every week.


SCRIPTS
The Senate votes next week on whether to allow Judge Kavanaugh to become a lifetime member of the Supreme Court - unless you help stop it.

The Senate and the House have the ability to protect our country from the worst of the president’s actions - but only if they hear us.

The Senate and the House plan another big tax break for ‘them as has’ - paid for by big cuts to the social safety net. And they plan to blame the Democrats for this. Unless we hold them accountable.

Enough is enough. Time to make some calls.

Use our scripts at Phone Scripts 9.20-9.23.2018, and sign up for Amplify. We fuel the blue wave by our commitment to standing up for our constitution.
