Actions You Can TakeThis Week

Volunteers Needed! 

The Wisconsin Voter Protection Team is recruiting volunteers in the lead-up to the August 11th and November 3rd elections. Our job will be to recruit volunteers to serve as poll workers/observers, confirm poll assignments, and reach out to voters about deadline changes and court actions.


ATTENTION Canvassers!Here’s your chance to use your conversational skills with voters. The Wisconsin Dems’ Bridge-Building campaign identifies persuadable voters and contacts them to discuss their top issues and, hopefully, ID them as Dems.

Volunteers Needed!

MoveOn Text Team needs volunteers all week (and through November!) for their ambitious “Text Every Democrat to defeat Trump” and “Vote Tripling” campaigns. MoveOn uses Spoke

 to text and Slack for communication and support.

If you’ve texted with them before, head to the #important_announcements channel of their Slack workspace.  If you haven’t, get started here and follow the steps to get trained and ready to text!

U.S. Census: It Counts!

We’re writing on behalf of Reclaim Our Vote and Black Voters Matter through August 7th! We’ll be making sure voters of color inFlorida know about the August 18th election and reminding them to complete the U.S. Census. Both will be important in ensuring that economic resources reach black communities. As usual, you’ll supply the postcards, labels, and stamps. We’ll get you the messaging upon sign-up. Learn more and sign up HERE.

Voter Suppression Affects All of Us
But voters in marginalized groups face much greater barriers to their
right to vote due to voter suppression tactics:

Strict voter ID laws

Lost/denied/delayed voter registrations

Lost or delayed absentee ballots

Purging of eligible voters 

Closing or moving polling locations without notice
