Voting Rights Reform:
Senator Leahy is home. He needs to hear from us NOW!

Lean Left is joining with the Vermont Indivisible Network in a national, all-hands-on-deck action initiative for the For the People Act. This once in a generation voting rights reform must be passed by the end of July to be effective for the 2022 elections. 

Sign up here for the last four days of action
where you’ll find these urgent actions: 

  • Call Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy. The Senator co-sponsored the legislation but is not committed to modifying the filibuster in order to pass it. Let Senator Leahy know we are counting on him to use all his powers to do whatever it takes to pass the For the People Act before it’s too late.
  • Join a vigil on Thursday, July 8 from 4:00 to 5:00 PM and on Saturday July 10th from 11:00 am to noon. 

IF YOU CAN ONLY DO ONE THING:

Please call Senator Leahy’s office at 802-863-2525 and leave a message to let him know you are counting on him to protect our democracy and our voting rights by using all his powers to pass S.1, the For the People Act, now.

Postcards for North Carolina Asian Community

Lean Left is writing postcards with North Carolina Asian Americans Together, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building progressive political power among Asian Americans through voter education and advocacy. North Carolina recently purged 391,000+ from the NC voter files, about 6,000 of which self-identified as Asian American.  We will be writing to these voters to provide them with information to re-register. You’ll supply your own postcards and stamps; we’ll supply the messaging. We are limited to the number of addresses, so this is first come, first served! Read through the specifics and sign up here.
