From the Activism Chair

Count down 11 Weeks to the Election:

Time to get Involved in any way you can, canvas phone bank, text, postcards, letters for Vote Forward, donate. Find the political engagement that works you. It’s not only Congressional & Senatorial that matter.  Local races matter. Gubernatorial races, State Attorney General & Secretary of State elections are all important in 2022 elections. Governors have the ability to VETO legislation from Republican dominated state legislatures. So, think about working on or donating to Arizona, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin Gubernatorial races.  You can volunteer to work on any candidate’s campaign anywhere in the country simply go to their website and signing up.

  1. Glad to see suggestions for activism. As shown in the last election, writing for Vote Forward is effective. Our household has written about 600 letters so far. They urge people to vote and are sent to registered democrats who normally do not vote. It can make a difference and is the personal touch that gets people to open the envelope – handwritten and I use interesting looking stamps.

    • Gabrielle, so glad to hear your household are involved Activists. Was you it your husband who came to the Activism Table during the picnic? Hope that you or others in your home can join us for phone banking on Monday.
