Breaking! In just two weeks, we’re hosting a forum focused on applying affordable technology to voter outreach, with emphasis on the Central Valley. We’re also supporting nationwide efforts to protect voting rights and you can look back to see our impact in the tumultuous year of 2020.
Quick Links below:
- Central Valley/Democracy Labs Seminar (4/14)
- Protect Voting Rights (Phonebanking and Textbanking)
- Swing Left 2020 Impact Report
- Protect Voting Rights Nationwide – Call Sen. Feinstein!
- Speak Spanish?
- Love Fundraising? Work with us!
Wednesday, April 14th 6:00 PM Pacific
How can affordable technology help us organize? We must register voters, reach voters, motivate voters, and persuade voters. Door-knocking, tabling, phone banks, letters, and texts serve us well now. How can we supplement them with inexpensive technology?
Deepka Puri of Democracy Labs will introduce innovations that can help us win elections and drive positive social change. TJ Cox will update us on what’s happening in the Central Valley and we’ll explore how innovation can lead us to victories in California and beyond
Georgia’s Governor Brian Kemp just signed SB 202 into law even though it’s perhaps the the most dangerous anti-voting bill since the days of Jim Crow. 37 states have submitted 253 laws aimed at preventing people from voting! Take action to help protect our democracy now! Enough is enough.
Phonebanks to critical states AZ and GA
Phone banks are held every Wednesday and Saturday. We will teach you how to use Call Hub, we leave messages and follow up with texts.
Join the The New Georgia Project Action Fund to contact voters and ask them to urge their members of Congress to vote YES on H.R. 1 and H.R. 4 to expand voting rights for all. This multi-day event lasts from now until April 6th, 9am PT (12pm ET). (If the RSVP link doesn’t work, open it in a private window).

Democrats in the U.S. House just passed HR1 to protect everyone’s voting rights and strengthen elections nationwide. Of course, bolstering democracy does not sit well with the Republicans in power (only three had the courage and integrity to vote yes).
Now HR1 sits in the U.S. Senate, where Republicans can block the bill using the filibuster. Most Democratic Senators would rather protect voting rights than maintain a rule designed to prolong racism. At least three Democrats need encouragement to drop the filibuster, including our own Sen. Dianne Feinstein!
Please call Senator Feinstein’s office now (and every day this week – they tally the calls!)
Sen. Dianne Feinstein: (202) 224-3841, (415) 393-0707, or (559) 485-7430
Once you’ve reached out to Sen. Feinstein, send messages to these two Senators – they need encouragement as well.
Contact Senator Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona)
Contact Senator Joe Manchin (West Virginia)
