ENJOY DEMOCRACY RESPONSIBLY
By electing the Biden/Harris administration, America bought itself two years. And we celebrate that by working every day of those two years to save the Senate and the House in the midterms… and make sure authoritarians cannot attempt to end our democracy in two years, or ever again. To protect our right to vote, “the right that is preservative of all other rights,” the Senate must pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. According to the Brennan Center for Justice, passing these two bills into law will quash every single one of the 360+ voter suppression bills proposed in 47 states. (Find ways you can help make this happen below!) We do our part by continuing to register Democrats in the states and districts that will most help us save the Senate and House. We currently have phone banks and/or postcard campaigns into AZ, FL, NC, PA, and TX, as well as key House districts in CA and CO-03… and we’ll be rolling out more soon. So yes, let’s enjoy our democracy responsibly – by making sure it survives 2022! And in case you need some inspiration, let us remind you of all the amazing things that you made happen just a little while ago…
WHAT WE DID TOGETHERIn the 2020 cycle and the Georgia runoffs, Field Team 6:
- Teamed up with over 100 partner organizations
- Deployed over 10,000 volunteers to almost 40,000 shifts, who…
- Sent 14.6m texts
- Posted social media ads generating 11.8m impressions
- Sent 6.4m emails
- Reached tens of millions with social media storms
- Reached over 15m voters with an average of 3 touches each including purged voters, public college students, the Black, Latinx, and indigenous communities, marriage equality supporters, even possible Trump defectors
- Registered our 30,000th swing state Democrat… (including >6k in Arizona, 58% of Biden/Harris’ margin of victory!)
- …and helped register hundreds of thousands more!
Now let’s do it again! From the top, with feeling!
DEVIN NUNES JOINS FIELD TEAM 6 ADVISORY BOARD! Happy April 1st! This is the only April Fool’s joke in the newsletter. Promise. To clear your palate, here’s a fun fact: Devin Nunes is the only congressman in history to sue a fictional cow – and lose.
CA-21 PHONE BANKWITH PARTNERS!
Since 1981, CA-21 was represented in Congress by Republicans. That changed in 2018, when Democrat TJ Cox unseated Republican incumbent David Valadao… then changed again last year, when Valadao squeaked back into the seat with less than a 1% margin. That’s why we’re laser-focused on reclaiming the seat for Democrats in 2022. To aid in that effort, FT6 is teaming up with an incredible team of partners led by FT6 stalwart and Swing Left Inland Valley leader Sharon Cohen, that includes: Democratic Women of Kern, Fresno County Democratic Party, Jimmy Carter Club, Kern County Democratic Party, Kings County Democratic Party, Santa Clara County Democratic Party, and West LA Democratic Club. Our Avengers-style alliance will be announcing a series of phone banks into CA-21 soon… stay tuned for details!

2020 DONOR OF THE YEAR: DON FOSTER
If you missed our first annual Field Team 6 awards show, there were tears, laughter and a well-deserved superhero cape… and that’s just from the presentation of our 2020 Donor of the Year Award! Watch the video again and again. Irrepressible resister, Chair of Field Team 6’s illustrious Advisory Board, and all around Good Guy, Don Foster was our honoree. We’ll add another round of heartfelt thanks and echo what is printed on his award: “Field Team 6 is proud to present this award to our Donor of the Year, Don Foster, in recognition of Buddha-like inner radiance, creativity on the battlefield, heart-melting generosity, and mastery in bringing joy to the fight. Without you, Field Team 6 would not exist. Thank you for literally helping save the world.” Thanks, Don! We couldn’t have done it without you and we wouldn’t want to try!

147 Republicans voted to overturn an American election. We’ve found 3 million unregistered Democrats in their districts. Let’s register every single one we can – and make sure these traitors lose their seats in a landslide. Treat traitors to the full panoply of FT6’s outreach efforts, including texts, emails, targeted ads, phone banks, and postcards. Thanks to you, we’ve now raised the money to do that for two adoptees, Reps Beth Van Duyne (TX-24), and Mike Garcia (CA-25)! We’ve left three of them on the board: Richard Hudson of North Carolina, Carlos Gimenez of Florida, and, even though we already hit our first fundraising goal, Southern California’s own Mike Garcia – aka the guy who slithered into Katie Hill’s old seat, won by just 333 votes in November, and then voted to overthrow democracy just weeks later. We’ve already started phone banking into Garcia’s district with the ThruTalk autodialer, and have just started postcarding too! But to fund more passes (which equals more voter touches), we’re looking to raise just $322 more. Can you chip in and help us unleash the full force of our digital organizing on every single unregistered likely Democrat in CA-25? Mike Garcia won’t thank you, but we will. And so will America! If you donate, you’ll be the first to receive an invite to the texting extravaganza for your adoptee! Not sure who to choose? Check out the adoption videos below!
