September Spotlight:
Rebuild the Blue Wall 

In the last decade, Republicans have breached the blue wall in the Great Lakes by taking control of state legislatures and granting Trump a series of critical, razor-thin victories in PA, MI and WI. In 2020, we have the chance to rebuild the blue wall. Lean Left VT is focusing our energy on the state legislatures in PA and WI and a flippable Senate seat in Iowa!

The New Georgia Project

Last night Lean Left hosted organizers from The New Georgia Project. Brandon Brown, NGP’s Field Director, gave us a sobering but hopeful view of the current election landscape. NGP Volunteer Maggie Bell ran us through an excellent training (clip below)! The current phone bank for NGP focuses on getting voters out for the special election on September 29 that will temporarily fill John Lewis’s seat. While is is a get-out-the-vote effort, this campaign is also helping get unregistered voters registered. Many of us went away from the session with a renewed commitment to join the people of Georgia!  Watch the whole training video and get started calling Georgia voters here.

BLOG POST: Voting is Local! Watch out for Misinformation  
In the wake of Trump’s assault on the Postal Service, there were many social media posts saying: “Just drop your mail ballot at your polling location.” This is NOT true in many states! Read about the three pieces of info that every voter should have.
