From the Activism Chair

By Carol Moeller —

There are critical elections this Fall and your participation in educating voters will make a big difference!  Issues matter!  Women’s Reproduction Rights, Gun Safety, Education, Climate Change, Voter Suppression are all on the ballot.  Join me and Work to Save Democracy for our children and grandchildren.  We are fighting Authoritarianism in every election.

Phone Banks:  If you’ve ever joined a phone bank, these new types are fun!  You connect with the bank leaders and other participants via zoom, and your phone is used to make calls (many use automatic dialers) disguising your number and at no cost to you.  Phone banking is where help is needed most.

Call for Change has a Phone Bank every Sunday from 3-5 PM starting Oct 1 and they give a choice of elections to choose from while providing training and tech support.   It’s a large phone bank (150- 200 participants), they are well organized plus they give background on the campaigns.  Here are their current choices:

KENTUCKY:  The Democratic governor (Andy Beshear) is running for re-election, and he is the only safeguard against that state’s ruby red repressive bills.

VIRGINIA HOUSE OF DELEGATES November election: Help flip Virginia to Blue! In Virginia, Republicans control the House of Delegates as well as the Governorship (Glenn Youngkin).  Your efforts will help Dems hold the VA Senate and flip the House of Delegates!

HELP US WIN BACK THE HOUSE AS WE CALL INTO CALIFORNIA:  The road to winning the House back is through California.  We’ll be calling into CA 13, 22 and 27!

Text Banks:  Here’s an opportunity to learn text banking:

Letter writing: Vote Forward Letters: (sign up for Virginia or Kentucky campaigns).

Postcards:  To help, go to Postcards To Voters, text “join” to Abby the text bot at 484-275-2229.
