THANK YOU FOR OUR EXISTENCE
“Courage” comes from the Latin word “cor,” or “heart.” Because of your heart, we’ve registered over 15k progressive voters, and are on track to register 100k+ and TAKE BACK OUR DEMOCRACY by next Thanksgiving!
In another week of huge growth, we:
- Hatched plans to work with our hero Andrew Gillum in Florida!
- Planned our first voter drives in battleground Michigan thanks to our amazing Outreach Director Sarah Jakle–who has also just become the GOTV Director for the CA chapter of the National Organization for Women! MAZEL TOV!!
- Scheduled our first Texas voter drives, thanks to the unstoppable Webber Barton and Elizabeth Daniel!
- Power Lunched with Swing Left Greater Boston’s dynamo leader Susan Labandibar to make battle plans for Florida, Maine, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. (Scroll to end for pics of all these wonderful people!)
So take heart as you navigate the politics of Thanksgiving! You are part of a movement that is turning courage into new progressive voters.
