It’s Sunday, and as each day goes by, it becomes increasingly obviously that our fascist-in-chief’s got nothing. Post here: tinyurl.com/Antiracist-events-Ventura
After 4 years in office – what has he ginned up on the fly to cover his sloth and incompetence? A $200 discount card for seniors to buy drugs. An imaginary “Platinum” plan for black people that promises to build up “peaceful” urban neighborhoods with the “highest standards” of policing (not suburbs – he’s already promised those to white housewives…) He’s also taking credit for Sen. Harris’s anti-lynching legislation and rebranding Obamacare, stealing Black people’s accomplishments right out in the open on national TV.
HE’S NOTHING BUT HAIR GEL AND LIES, surrounded by toadies who will say anything not to be fired. https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/september-25-2020
We have real fighters on our side, and a history of anti-fascism that our families paid for in blood. “E-Day” is coming closer and we need to get out, a least figuratively, and start contacting voters to be involved in some homegrown housecleaning.
Phonebanking (there are several opportunities to do this TODAY!)
Textbanking! Letter Writing! Postcards! along with other great things to do!: https://indivisibleventura.org/what-can-i-do-now/
Today, and pretty much every day until the election, there are phonebanking and text banking opportunities, including some for Spanish speakers.
We also included videos on phonebanking, even one targeting us introverts.
At 3:00, there’s a BLM Art Protest in the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza Park, where there’ll be live performances, food, and voting information.
At 6:00 pm, there’s a candlelight vigil in honor of Breonna Taylor at the Central Park in Riverpark, Oxnard, next to the fountain/gazebo. If you haven’t started to read the (48) planks of their campaign, well – here they are. Make this part of your weekend resistance work.

No. But that’s where our job starts again after the election, when we landslide our current dictator out of office.
In the meantime, there’s a ton of work to do for Breonna. Much you can do by email over the weekend as well. We’ve added statements by Black Lives Matter, NAACP and the Movement for Black Lives.
