Postcarding Update: Covid-19 Safety
Here are some improvements to make turning Pinellas BLUE safer for all of us:
We have modified our card parties at Allendale UMC.
Every Monday 6PM-8PM
Allendale United Methodist Church
3803 Haines Rd. N.
St. Petersburg, FL 33703
PLEASE ORDER IN ADVANCE. Please let us know in advance how many 20-card packs you would like to pick up. That way, we can have them waiting for you and can put them right into your car without you having to get out of your car. Contact Scott Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
STAY IN YOUR CAR. We want to minimize any chance of you getting sick. Come in the circular drive in front of the Rivera Room. We will be waiting with protective gear on.
DROP-OFFS IN TRUNK. If you are dropping off cards, we suggest that you put them in your trunk. When you get here, pop the trunk and we will take the finished cards and put into your trunk as many packs as you like.
TAKE MORE CARDS. We suggest that you double or even triple the number of cards that you take. We aren’t going to do the mailing until August, so you have plenty of time to do your cards. Taking more cards means we will see you less but it also means you have less chance of getting sick. The Covid-19 virus cannot survive on cardboard for more than 24 hours. If you just leave the cards in your trunk for a few days you can be sure that they are safe.
Your work has never been more important! VBM is the BEST way to vote in the age of Covid-19.
We won’t let Covid-19 stop us because
THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!

Allendale United Methodist Church has been a friend to Indivisible FL-13 and other progressive groups in the age of Trump. For nearly four years that I know of and probably longer they have been a safe and welcoming space for numerous progressive activist groups and causes.
In this time of Covid-19 they are struggling with decreasing offerings and donations. If you are able please visit their web site and make a donation of any size. Every little bit adds up. The give link is in the upper right or click here to go directly there.
Please mention Indivisible FL-13 in the optional comments field. Thank you and thank Allendale United Methodist Church for their help and encouragement.

Indivisible and other local activist groups gather outside the offices of Senator Scott and Senator Rubio in the Sam M. Gibbons U.S. Court House in Tampa every Tuesday morning. This weekly demonstration began in 2017 outside Rubio’s office on Kennedy Boulevard after Rubio’s refusal to meet with his constituents. Each week activists call the Senators’ office staffs to relate their focus for that demonstration, and e-mail pictures of the signs for that week to the staff. Activists will have signs available. FMI: (727) 894-2832.
