Hi Friends,

Spring is in full swing and we are springing into action! There’s still time to sign up for our Wednesday forum about applying affordable technology to voter outreach, with emphasis on the Central Valley. We’re still supporting nationwide efforts to protect voting rights and there’s a May 1st election in Texas to fill a vacant house seat that we’re making calls for.

Read on for details…

Forum: 21st Century Outreach – Central Valley and Beyond!

This 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?

Deepak 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.

RSVP: April 14th 6:00pm PT

Protect Voting Rights in AZ and Get Out the Vote in TX

Call voters of color in Arizona to oppose voter suppression bills and to Democrats in Texas about the May 1st special election for a congressional seat.

We’re using CallHub, a user-friendly dialer. All you need is a laptop, computer or tablet and earphones. CallHub works best with Chrome but does not work well on an iPad. We’ll provide training, answer questions, and help you develop your activist skills!

RSVP: Wednesdays 2 – 4pm PT

RSVP: Saturdays 2 – 4pm PT
