Action! 9.24-9.26.2018

There is so much to do. So many opportunities. It’s hard to keep track - and we cannot become complacent.
Everything is at stake - and you are part of the Blue Wave.
With your help, we overcome.

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

ACTIONS

  1. Attend the General Meeting on September 24.

  2. Sign up for Code Red and be prepared in case Rosenstein is fired.

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

  4. 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 40 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.


Any Time
BLOCK KAVANAUGH'S NOMINATION

He's against reproductive rights, environmental and consumer protections, workers' rights, LGBT rights, ... and he'd shield the President from investigations and prosecution.

SO, LET'S TURN UP THE HEAT!

Phone bankers, we did it for ACA, last year, and we can do it for SCOTUS, now!

Join us in making calls to mobilize progressives in key states to VOTE NO ON KAVANAUGH!

We have excellent lists, a good script and an easy online calling system.

RSVP to phonebankcoalition@gmail.com
Experienced callers can sign up to make calls from home, immediately
We will train new callers and get you up and running, quickly.

The Women’s March Calls for Local Rallies on Thursday!

Thursday, September 27, 2018
Starts at Noon

The Women's March has called for nationwide protests on September 27th at noon across all time zones.

Too many of us have stories like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s. Too many of us have never felt safe enough to share them. Dr. Blasey Ford has shown incredible courage coming forward about Brett Kavanaugh’s attempt to rape her 36 years ago. She has given us the courage to share our own stories.

Dr. Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her attempted rape on Thursday. That same day, on September 27th, survivors will gather at their Senators’ offices across the country and share their own testimonies of assault. They will #HearOurVoice.
