There are phonebanking and textbanking events every day! GOTV no longer includes having to get lost in some strange city, walking on hot sidewalks, climbing steps, and the waiting, waiting, waiting, for someone to answer the door. You can now help from the comfort of your own home, with a cat or dog “helping” you and providing moral support. Don’t worry, there are videos and training sessions to help! Remember, this is new for everyone, there are no grades, and this will not be on your permanent record.
Our minister of postcards is ordering 3000 more, you still have time to do this too! Join our postcard campaign – we’re north of 20,000 now! Wanna help? Email “I WANT POSTCARDS” to email@example.com.

If you have red-state friends and family on your digital rolodex in the cloud, please ask them to pile on calls to their GOP senators to pass the newest version of the HEROES Act. Take a moment to send an email of thanks to our own representatives to thank them for their continued efforts to help desperate people survive this pandemic.
