JAPAN, 1477

In feudal Okinawa, the new ruler feared an uprising, so he banned all weapons. In response, the citizens perfected martial arts. Today, because we are denied in-person activism, we are forced to become even more effective.

Just look at this week’s good news:
• A new Vote by Mail video from the incredible Laura San Giacomo
• Our first Happy Hour fundraiser
• Jaw-dropping national success in our online #VirusFreeVoting protest
• Two new partnerships in PA and FL
• Phone banks into five crucial swing states

Are you tired? You should be! We’ve been fighting this battle for three and a half years. But take a deep breath, sign up for our Happy Hour below, and remind yourself: if we keep fighting? In six months, WE WIN.

Laura San Giacomo Video!

We’ve got our first celebrity in the house – her own house! The incredible Laura San Giacomo (Pretty Woman, Just Shoot Me!, NCIS) recorded a heartfelt Vote By Mail message for Field Team 6. Watch the video HERE (or click below)!

Drink and Give!

Field Team 6 is raising money to get college kids in Florida registered this Saturday, 5/16. Each ticket gets you a Zoom link to (virtually) attend — click HERE. Can’t make it? Please DONATE anyway to support this exciting and worthy cause!

#VirusFreeVoting Ironically GOES VIRAL!

Last week, we put out the call for a virtual protest to demand Congress protect our elections, and the results were astounding! During just two hours of the online action, there were:

138,000 retweets
347,000 likes
Reach of 12.2 million
and 84 million impressions!

What an incredible achievement! Huge thanks to everyone who joined in, and especially to Field Team 6 superstars Patti Crane and Michelle Manire Fowle for making it all happen. When we speak up, nothing can stop us — not even a pandemic!

New Partnerships: PA and FL

This week we’re thrilled to announce not one, but two exciting new partnerships! We’ll be working with America Votes Pennsylvania and Next Steps Florida to help flip these two vital swing states blue in November. Stay tuned for more details on upcoming initiatives!
