AZ SETS NEW BAR
Our Mad Hatter goal was to register 1,000 Democrats in a week in AZ.
We registered 1,245.
This is proof of scaling. This is what we are building in every other state we’re in. HUGE thank you to our Maricopa County Field Director Richard “Doc” Gooding, leader of AZ Blue 2020, whose superhuman organizing made this possible. Thanks to our Southern AZ Field Director Gil Wier and our Flagstaff Field Director Helen Wong for the assists! And thanks to every single one of the 125+ volunteers from all over AZ and CA! LOOK WHAT YOU DID!!!
NATIONWIDE WOMEN’S MARCH SUCCESS
This weekend, Field Team 6 stood up 13 voter drives at Women’s Marches in 7 battleground states: AZ, CA, CO, ME, MI (2 drives snowed out), PA, and TX. (And our NC march is this Saturday!) We registered hundreds of progressives, signed up hundreds of volunteers, and proved that in 2020, we are NATIONWIDE!
I have to share this text from Berl Hartman, our heroic Maine Field Director (and proud member of Swing Left Greater Boston), who led our drive at the Portland march: Temperature 16 degrees & windy. Result: 45 New Democratic voters and a very happy group of volunteers.
How can that not melt your heart?
The 1st Women’s March was the cannon shot that sparked the Resistance. This one is the starter pistol for our sprint to November 3rd. AND THEY’RE OFF! (Find your nearest voter drives and trainings below!)
