The Field Team 6 Weekly
Register Democrats. Save the world.
May 21, 2020

¡Field Team 6!

HOUSES FLIPPED:   1 
DAYS UNTIL 2020 ELECTION:  166
PROGRESSIVE VOTERS REGISTERED:  21,110


EMPATHY

Empathy connects us to each other. It turns strangers into friends and friends into family. It binds us with love to our country and world. Empathy is the beating heart of every major religion and the lifeblood of our progressive values.

And it’s something Trump and the Republicans do not have.

So remember, every time you’re talking to voters – whether on a phone call, text thread, or social media – you are literally beating back apathy with empathy. 

And you are building the coalition that will take our country back in 166 days. So keep going!!!


World Premiere: John Henson Video

#VirusFreeVoting Goes Viral AGAIN!

On Monday, our second virtual protest to protect the November elections once again WENT VIRAL! On Twitter alone, we achieved:

18,000 retweets
48,000 favorites
reach of 7.5 million
and 25.4 million impressions!

Much thanks to everyone who participated for making this action such an amazing success! Even though we can’t gather in person these days, we’re still joining forces to amplify this incredibly important issue. Fantastic work, everyone!


Virtual Happy Hour: Huge Success!

Big love to hosts Lynn Bommer and Shelley Cohen-Brown, the angelic performers from Face the Music Collective (Dawn Oberg,Dayna Kurtz,Pete Kronowitt and Chas Castell) and everyone who laughed and drank their way through Field Team 6’s very first virtual happy hour this past Saturday. 

We had a goal of raising $5000 to help get college kids in Florida registered to vote, and we beat it! Amazing! We all had so much fun that we’re making it easy for you to throw your own event with our Happy Hour in a Box fundraiser kit! Interested? Click HERE.
