April 2020 Blue Wave Schedule

4 mins read

COVID-19 means we need to Vote by Mail to Beat Trump and flip the U.S. Senate Blue in 2020. 

Volunteers across the nation recently wrote, texted and called registered Democrats in Wisconsin. Liberal Judge Jill Karofsky defeated the incumbent supported by Trump by 11 points. About 71% of the voting was by absentee ballot. This is the trial run for November election in swing states. This is our fight.

We will write, text and phone bank to registered Democrats in swing states to get them signed up to Vote by Mail. We will provide you the tools and training to step up your letter writing and texting from home.Additionally, we have the opportunity to participate in a SwingLeft call with NC U.S. Senate candidate, Cal Cunningham.

Please sign up for any or all of these sessions so that you can help get the word out.

Saturday, April 25th 8:30 am

All the meetings above are virtual meetings conducted using zoom or google hangout.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige used his emergency powers in March to declare a statewide lockdown of Hawaii’s economy and social fabric, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

He also suspended the state’s generally excellent open-meetings and open-records laws, leaving Hawaii citizens in the dark about the proceedings of their government.

Was it really necessary to suspend the state’s Sunshine Law concerning open meetings and Uniform Information Practices Act concerning open-records to help fight the coronavirus? What can be done to restore government transparency and accountability in Hawaii?

Sandy Ma, executive director of Common Cause Hawaii, and Brian Black, executive director of the Civil Beat Law Center for the Public Interest, will help answer these questions during a free live webinar starting at noon on Tuesday, April 21, at an internet connection near you.

Common Cause Hawaii is dedicated to strengthening public participation in government; curbing the influence of money in politics; ensuring that government serves the common good, rather than special interests; and promoting fair, honest and modern elections.”

The Civil Beat Law Center is committed to promoting transparency and responsiveness in government, believing that secrecy fuels distrust of public officials.

Moderator for the webinar will be Keli‘i Akina, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, which is dedicated to promoting individual liberty, economic freedom and accountable government.
