Actions You Can Take This Week

Join the Wisconsin Voter Protection Phone Bank TeamRemember the Wisconsin Primary in April? Key to winning Wisconsin will be making sure polling locations are numerous and well-staffed so in-person voting is safe. We’ll be calling Wisconsin Dems to recruit poll workers and observers, to confirm assignments, and to reach out to voters about deadline changes and court actions. Get started HERE

Keep track of your totals! Lean Left wants to hear about all the good work you’re doing. How many conversations with voters are you having? Share the results of a conversation, and we’ll share this info with Lean Lefters around the state. Complete this Phone Bank Tally Sheet every time you make calls.

Gathering the Volunteer Force

Resistance Labs has recently been texting for groups like Black Voters MatterMPower 360Tunout2020, and many more, doing voter registration work, sharing COVID-19 resources, and mobilizing volunteers to take action on issues like voter suppression. They’ll be needing texting volunteers all week (and through November!) for more of this kind of critical work!

They use Spoke to text and Slack for communication and support. If you’ve texted with them before, head to their Slack workspace. If you haven’t, get started by signing up here, and you’ll be invited to their Slack workspace and get access to their training materials! 

Brand new to textbanking?

effective way to take action.

Pledge to Vote and Do More

This campaign is an excellent investment of YOUR time.

Reclaim Our Vote is working with the North Carolina NAACP to transform voters into activists and organizers. The postcard message asks people to pledge to vote in November AND share this message with 5 other people they know. 

Move On recently cited studies indicating that the social technique of being asked to vote by people you know (called “vote Tripling”) is far more effective than being asked to vote by strangers. 

Action Sign Up HERE.

And those 20,000 postcards you’re sending? They will be followed by phone calls. Get in on this massive web of voter engagement by writing postcards and making calls.

Come join us at the Cafe as we phone bank and text together. At the Cafe, we can discuss how our actions are going, ask questions, get support, and get some work done!

Training Opportunities:
Are You Ready to Roll?

As primaries end in many states, we need to gear up for work that will help protect voting rights, register voters, and get the voters educated. Check out Lean Left’s training schedules: phone banking here and texting here.

Why Are State Races Important?

It is not enough to focus on winning Congress and the Presidency. Republicans have built structural advantages by using their control of state offices to gerrymander districts and enact voter suppression laws. State-level campaigns are often small and under-resourced, so when we support state-level races, we can make a difference. 

This Week’s Event
Thursday, July 2, 6 to 8 pm
Meet our newest Sister District candidate Deb Ciamacca. Deb is running for the Pennsylvania House in District 168, Delaware County. If elected she will be the first Democrat AND the first woman to ever hold this seat! 
Read more and sign up HERE.

As we watch the Republicans’ boldfaced attacks on the right to vote, as just seen in Georgia, Wisconsin, and Kentucky, voter protection organizations and our candidates need our support now more than ever.
