DEFEND DEMOCRACY – AND YOUR SANITY

Democracy needs defending today! Join us in a massive online protest for #VirusFreeVoting! We demand Congress protect the vote by 1) moving all states to vote by mail, and 2) protecting the US Postal Service. No bill can become a law without the vote of the Democratic majority that we put in the House in 2018. The time is now to take a stand. Post a photo or video on social media – copy my video or make your own. See below for details.

Once you’ve done that, defend your sanity with the hilarious and reassuring voices of Pod Save America. Among the latest episode’s nuggets of gold: recent polls show Biden beating Trump in 4 of our battleground states: Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Listen to it here!

Also below, check out our great new video “Elephant in the Room,” and post it everywhere. This is how we continue registering Democrats to vote… now with keyboards instead of clipboards!

#VirusFreeVoting Virtual Protest!

Field Team 6 is partnering with DemCastto demand that Congress secure funding for all states to vote safely from home this November and to protect the US Post Office! The virtual protest is happening TODAY,  4/30, from 3-5p PDT. Join in by contacting your reps, posting to social media, or sharing a personal video. CLICK HERE to get started with the Digital Toolkit. Many of our reps haven’t been feeling enough pressure to take action on this vital issue — so let’s make sure they feel it today!

VIDEO SPOTLIGHT

“The Elephant in the Room” by our amazing videographer, Jeff Sielaff. Click here to watch — and don’t forget to share!

Props from Rep. Katie Porter!

Resistance hero and congressional superstar Representative Katie Porter (CA-45) gave Field Team 6 a shout-out this week! During a grassroots conference call she mentioned the great work of Field Team 6 no less than FIVE TIMES! Her team even gave Field Team 6 an additional plug in a follow-up email blast. What an honor! (And speaking of CA-45… we’re currently working on new ways to help out in this district. Stay tuned!)
