Thanks to all who took an action yesterday to protest Trump and his agenda, including his attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat, at a Women’s March event. Thanks to those of you who marched and rallied or simply stood silent with a sign, and to those who phonebanked to reach left-behind voters. We in Ventura were one of more than 400 events that took place across the country.

To be so close to Election Day feels simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying. We’ve worked so hard, while watching so much injustice and corruption unfold. But this is history that hasn’t been written yet – we do not know how it ends. We’ve included a video shared by Justice for All to give us the energy to keep on.
There are phone/textbanks happening EVERY SINGLE DAY until the election. Please join in and reach out to those who’ve been feeling disaffected, discouraged or depressed. Kind words are powerful during these times and people need to hear that they, and their votes, are important.
Today’s activities: The Women’s March Nationwide textbank continues. Pick a shift and help out if you can.
The amazing activists in Simi Valley have some plans for you too. 4 p.m. Sunday Sign Waving Meet at the Corner of Madera and Cochran. 4-6 p.m. RSVP by replying to this email. FYI, there may be a Trump Parade going through. They have a weekly Trump train starting at Babies R Us/Lowes
The Oxnard Good Club, Stonewall Democrats of Ventura Co. and the Ventura Co. Democratic Club have joined up for an every-Sunday phonebank to flip the Senate and elect Joe Biden and Kamal Harris. https://www.mobilize.us/cadems/event/303583/
