Magic – The Field Team 6 Weekly

8 mins read

July 16, 2020





Field Team 6 organizes in three ways – relational, digital, and magical. With relational, we offer our services to our 100+ partner organizations, strengthening the bonds that turn individuals into a movement. With digital, we access and share lists of voters and eligible voters, and reach out through every means possible to register Democrats to vote from home. But magical organizing achieves things no other way can.

Magical organizing takes chances on bold, imaginative ideas – as with our Zoom concerts, Zoom expert talks, and upcoming Zoom game show. It reboots old tools in new, inventive ways – like using geofencing to get voter registration ads to our friends at BLM protests. It combines comedy and heart to amplify our cause – as with our shout-outs from Jack Black, Jane Lynch, Sarah Cooper, Reno Wilson, Rep. Adam Schiff, and Rep. Katie Porter.
See the Big News below for how we are applying magic to social media for our very first virtual voter registration drive! Think you’re not social media savvy enough to help? We’ll hold your hand. #VirusFreeVoting proved we have a reach of 10s of millions. We’re about to use that magical power to register progressives!

We will win in November because of every single one of you – and the magic you get when you combine passion, dedication, and imagination .
