SEIZE THE MOMENT

Right now, we can do in-person voter drives in parts of every single one of our battleground states: AZ, CA, FL, GA, NC, NV, PA, TX and WI. (Consult our Covid-safe protocols HERE.) But with the Delta variant on the rise, we can’t be sure how long this will last.

So, if you haven’t yet, pick a state or district – OWN it – and commit to doing everything you can to make sure Democrats win. Then check out our Voter Drive in a Box, which gives you all you need to do a voter drive there with confidence! And if you’re in Southern California, join the unstoppable Diane Offner at one of her upcoming CA-39 voter drives!

 We need to fill our butterfly nets with Democrats every time conditions allow. Also, registering voters gets easier with practice. At your second voter drive, you’ll be far better than your first. And by the time schools open in mid-August, you will be perfectly poised to take advantage of the best time of year to register new Democrats!

 Along with in-person voter drives, our superhero organizers continue to offer a full menu of options for registering Democrats: phone banking, postcarding, social storming, and sometimes texting. So pick your favorite way to save the world, and let’s make every day count!

NOW PARTNERING WITH SAFA!

Field Team 6 is thrilled to be partnering with the powerhouse South Asians for America, a national grassroots organization dedicated to the education, advocacy, engagement, and mobilization of the South Asian Democratic community in the United States at the local, state, and federal levels, by increasing the civic engagement, political participation, and network of South Asians. 

They’ve already set up their own version of Voterizer.org, and will be registering Democrats with us via in-person drives – phone banking – text banking – and postcarding. They also offer the ability to translate all voter registration materials into South Asian languages! This, along with their customizing our scripts and messaging to the South Asian community, will be an incredible boost to our common efforts.

 Let’s go!

Congress needs to know about the overwhelming grassroots support for voting rights legislation – and this Saturday, July 10 from 10a-12p PT, we’ll be taking to the interwebs to tell them. We’ll be demanding action from our senators – Republicans and Democrats – with ready-made Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram assets proclaiming the urgency of passing the For The People Act.

VOLUNTEER SHOUT-OUT: ADAM LESH

This week we’re spotlighting the one and only Adam Lesh – aka the mad genius behind Voterizer.org

The fastest way to register a Democrat! Adam is an emerging technology subject matter expert, specializing in blockchain, digital transformation, software development and digital content. He’s spent his career on the cutting edge of technology, from his time at Warner Bros. pioneering DVD mastering to starting and running a boutique post-production facility for 11 years to developing a blockchain rights, royalties and revenue management system.

After a couple of years spent shouting at his TV, Adam decided he needed to help send Donald Trump packing by turning his technological expertise into action. We’re so thankful that he ended up connecting with Field Team 6 and creating the voter registration juggernaut known as Voterizer

 The brandable, embeddable web app, custom-built to register Democrats! When Adam isn’t busy dreaming up genius apps, he enjoys hiking, sunsets, his dogs and helping defeat Republican efforts to destroy our country.

Thank you Adam for your tireless dedication to democracy, Voterizer and FT6. Your help fuels everything we do!
