Trump and the GOP want us to give up. But we have the resolve of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Trump and the GOP sow confusion. But we have the clarity of Elijah Cummings. Trump and the GOP want us to fear the Proud Boys, the lawsuits, the chaos. But we will proceed unbowed, with the strength of John Lewis. Trump made the debate unlistenable because he has nothing to say. He’s turning up the noise so that people tune out. Too bad for him so many of us have been tuning in for the last four years. And we have news for you, Trump: We won’t stand back. And we won’t stand by. Almost 1.3 million have already voted. At this point in 2016, that number was 10,000. That’s why Trump and the GOP want us to stop what we’re doing. They want us to stop texting and calling and reaching out to our fellow Americans, sounding the alarm in every way we know how. They want us to stop organizing. And that’s exactly why we will continue – with the tenacity of Karen Bass, the force of Dolores Huerta, the brilliance of Barack Obama. We are now in the thick of the battle. This Monday, October 5, our first voter registration deadlines hit in AZ, FL, GA, and TX. After that, we will be fighting every registration deadline as they cascade throughout the month until the last one on October 27. What we all do in the next 33 days will decide the fate of our democracy. This is the hour America needs us most. And with every single hour of activism, with every single act of courage, we are not only saving America – we are also demonstrating why America should be saved.
BE AN #OCTOBERVOTER
Voting early? Set an example by sharing a pic of you dropping off your ballot at a drop box, mailbox, or polling place ballot box on your social media of choice and using the hashtags #Voterizer and #OctoberVoter.
The goal is to inspire others to get out and vote as early as possible… and create a social media “trail” to show the date you early voted. Important note! DO NOT take a picture of your actual secret ballot. We don’t want you to run afoul of any election laws. Also, this ONLY applies to mail-in-ballots. Almost every state has rules against taking pictures in or near polling places… so please don’t do that either! We’ll use these photos to create a powerful new Get Out The Vote campaign. Thanks for being an #OctoberVoter!
You’re all working so hard to help save our democracy and we don’t always get the time to say “thanks!” So here’s a little exchange between Jason and kickass Text Banker Jeff Antebi. 15,000+ texts in the last 7 days?! Way to go, Jeff! We’d like to join Jason in saying, “Thank you!” Because that is awesome. In the truest sense. It’s down to the Herculean efforts of volunteers like Jeff that we are poised for a Blue Wave of life-changing, world-saving proportions. Well done!
If you have 2 hours, you can help save the world.
