Hi Friends,

The tumultuous transition of power is behind us and things appear to be quiet. Now what? We’re supporting redistricting processes and laying groundwork for 2021 and 2022 elections. It’s also time to improve our skills, make connections, and become more informed. Read on to learn about a redistricting seminar this week and how to counter voter suppression in Georgia through our phonebanks.

Redistricting Revealed!

Congressional district boundaries are about to get redrawn in California and those boundaries can determine who gains power and who loses power in the U.S. Congress for the next ten years.
 
This Thursday, February 18th, California Redistricting Commissioner Ray Kennedy explains how the process will unfold this year. Please join us to learn more about this important underpinning of Democracy!

Call Georgia to Protect Voting Rights

Georgia citizens’ voting rights are under assault! New legislation proposed by Republicans will suppress voter turnout and disenfranchise tens of thousands of Georgia voters. These bills aim to end automatic voter registration, ban all absentee ballot drop boxes, prohibit new Georgia voters from voting in runoff elections, requires two Photo ID copies to vote via absentee ballot and so on… Join us the next few Saturdays and Wednesdays from 2 to 4 pm PST  to call Georgia voters of color in key districts. We’ll connect them directly to their state senators to oppose new voter suppression bills. We will use Call Hub, a dialer that allows you to patch the voter directly to their state senator’s phone number. As always, we’ll be there to train you and answer questions. All you need is a computer or tablet and earphones. Call hub works best with Chrome, so please download chrome to start calling.

RSVP: Saturdays: 2 – 4pm PT

RSVP: Wednesdays: 2 – 4pm PT
