MIDNIGHT RIDE WITH US
Forty-seven days stand between us and the election. These are the days that count most. To all of you who have been woke for decades, or for the last four years, or for the last four days, keep on waking people up. We are part of the greatest political reawakening in modern history. We are Paul Revere on his midnight ride! And the redcoats are coming! With every text and call and social media post, we wake people up, and let them know they have the power to make change.
We beat back apathy with empathy.
We beat back disinformation with education.
We beat back paralyzing despair with joyful action.
So raise your voice to lift up the voices of others! And in 47 days, we will beat back tyranny with a mighty roar that will echo across the world.

Plus — we’d love everyone with a website of any kind to embed Voterizer, so your visitors can register to vote! And we’ve got the embed code ready to go. Click HERE to get started!
BIG LOVE FROM RENO WILSON
These days, the keyboard is the new clipboard. With the launch of Voterizer, our Weekend of Action, virtual voter drives, and social storms in battleground states, Field Team 6 has been ramping up the action in the social media sphere.
It’s having an impact!
And when folks like Reno Wilson lend their resonant voices to the cause, that impact grows exponentially. So huge thanks to Reno. You are making a difference!
KELLY AUCOIN SPEAKS OUT
Kelly AuCoin is brilliant in Billions, in The Americans… and in real life. He’s a huge Field Team 6 ally who’s frequently helped push our message of love, hope and saving democracy.
He jumped into the fray again during our Voterizer storms in Arizona and Michigan. When guys like Kelly get involved, tens of thousands notice. And people who notice become people who vote!
So thank you Kelly! We appreciate your help in fighting the good fight.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26: THE THIRD ACT IS FOR ACTIVISM

SUPER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
PHONE AND TEXT BANK CAPTAINS NEEDED NOW!
Become a Phone or Text Bank Captain and help lead our most important project so far: contacting every college student and purged voter on our battleground states list! It only takes a couple hours to lead a weekly phone or text bank after your initial training, and we handle all the logistics. Interested? Sign up for a training session in the section above, or contact us HERE!
TEXT BANK ZOOM/SLACK SUPPORT STAFF
Mildly tech-savvy people needed to help volunteers with basic Spoke, Zoom, and Slack questions. We can train you up from scratch in no time! Interested? Contact us HERE!
DIGITAL FIELD DIRECTORS – COLORADO & MICHIGAN
We’re looking for a Digital Field Director for the critical state of Colorado and one for the wild and woolly battleground of Wisconsin! You will oversee all phone/text banks in your state, lead some yourself, obtain biweekly metrics, and coordinate with all phone bank captains in the state. All training provided. Interested? Contact us HERE!
SPANISH LANGUAGE TRANSLATORS
With Voterizer now available en español, FT6 needs Spanish translators to help translate our app for additional states (and assets to promote it), and answer emails from new Latinx voters. Contact us HERE!
We are actively expanding our vibrant Outreach Team! If you can volunteer your time and help us reach out to allied organizations, we are looking for organizers for our LGBTQ+, BLACK, LATINO, and YOUTH Outreach Teams.
LEAD THE CHARGE FROM HOME
We’re looking for people with time and skills to share. Heck, it might be something we don’t even know we need! Tell us a bit about yourself and your skills HERE!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
THE SKINNY ON TEXT ARCADES
For anyone who missed the unveiling of our Text Arcades last week:
Here’s the problem. Texting is super fun, deadly effective… and expensive. That’s why in the past few years, volunteer demand for texting has *far* outstripped supply. We now have the solution: the Text Arcade. At the Text Arcade, you can buy a virtual Token for ten dollars, which unlocks 500 eligible voters you can then text! You choose the specifics, so you might text Purged Voters from Iowa one time and Public College Students from Michigan the next. And if you want 500 more contacts, it’s just another ten dollars. Texting parties are also available!
To be clear, we will still offer every single free text bank we can afford to. But that will only get us about halfway through our lists of purged voters and public college students. Text Arcades could take us the rest of the way. And we offer them for as little as possible, because the goal is to register every single Democrat we can!
SOCIAL STORM UPDATES
Huge thanks to everybody who took to the socials and promoted Voterizer in Arizona and Michigan on Saturday! We achieved 5.5 million impressions and 1.4 million reach. Incredible work, team… your fast fingers just might save democracy!
VOTERIZER BUMPER AND SKATE STICKERS
Have a car… or even a sweet deck? Show your love of the BLUE with a bumper sticker or skateboard sticker that you can get HERE and print from the comfort of your own home with standard Avery labels. You can also print 8.5×11″ posters to tape in your window!
Added bonus… pointing a phone at the QR code in the corner takes you (or your voting eligible friends at the halfpipe) directly to Voterizer. So go ahead… show it off!
