Dear Friends –
This weekend marks Rosh Hashanah, or the Jewish New Year. Shana Tova to all who will be celebrating!
Our Recommendations: This Tuesday, the Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee voted to make a number of endorsements in campaigns around Miami-Dade, and we voted on our recommendations for the state constitutional amendments. You can see our full slate of Democratic candidates, endorsed candidates and ballot recommendations on our website (and www.votefordemocrats.miami will take you to that page as well).
Volunteer Teams: We are filling out volunteer teams — neighborhood leads, Early Voting site captains and more. Interested in helping with these efforts? Sign up here.
Paid Canvassers: There are a number of campaigns that are hiring right now and we are collecting resumes for anyone who is interested in a $15/hour paid role doing socially distanced canvassing. Are you interested? Or know someone who is? Fill out this form here, and one of the campaigns will be in touch.
Hispanic Heritage Caravans:
There are a number of caravans to show our support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris during Hispanic Heritage month. Sign up for one of the Todos Con Biden Hispanic Heritage Caravans here.
Join one of our phone banks: Democratic turnout this August increased by nearly 70% from four years ago. And Vote-By-Mail is one of the big reasons why. Now more than ever, it’s important to keep the momentum going and deliver Florida to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and all our Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. Help encourage voters to request a vote-by-mail ballot by October and mail-in early or drop off at early voting locations drop-boxes. Sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/miamidadedems/event/309100/
Want to be a Neighborhood Leader? We need volunteers willing to help distribute yard signs, postcards, and coordinate volunteers activities in their community, along with folks capable of driving materials to volunteers. Join our first call to get folks in action. We’ll be meeting every week. Sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/miamidadedems/event/316966/
Join one our Early Voting Site Teams: Join an early voting site team to coordinate with volunteers from your neighborhood. Practicing safety guidelines, we will be staffing early voting sites every day to encourage voters to vote Democrat as they walk in to cast their ballot. This is a HUGE undertaking and we’re going to need all the help! Sign up here: Early Voting Site Teams
Join the Voter Protection Team: The voter protection team is looking for lawyers, problem solvers and patriotic people to help protect the vote during Early Voting and on Election Day. There are remote and in-person opportunities: https://www.miamidadedems.org/protect_the_vote
