Weekly Action Update — Take an Hour this Week to Help Save Democracy

5 mins read

The political pundits keep saying there is a good chance the Republicans who are pushing the big lie will retake the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and will either keep or take over the state legislatures, secretary of state offices, and local governments.
Listen to the story from the Center for Investigative Reporting to learn how this is being done.
What is happening in this story about Michigan is happening in all of Lean Left’s target states. The work that needs to get done is not glamorous, but it is essential if we are going to stop the far-right in November. 

Pennsylvania

Voting, both mail ballot and early in-person, is underway for PA May primary. Voting is a habit and people who vote in the primaries are much more likely to vote in the general election. Democrats have a chance to win the PA House of Representatives this year IF we get out to vote! 

  • Join Turn PA Blue every Tuesday to encourage people to vote on May 17th. The most effective way to reach voters right now is through making phone calls. Help get the word out to make sure Democrats can have their voices heard. SIGN UP HERE

New Hampshire

The New Hampshire Senate has passed a bill that risks disqualifying thousands of lawfully cast ballots; resulting in overseas military voters not receiving their ballots in time; creating longer lines and confusion on Election Day for thousands of voters, particularly students; and threatening the privacy of ballots.

  • Urgent one-day action on Wednesday from 6 to 8 pm. Join the Democrats’ Voter Protection Team in an all-out effort to stop it! Make calls to ask voters to contact their state representatives and express opposition to this dangerous bill. SIGN UP HERE.

North Carolina

How often do you get to meet Lean Left’s monthly beneficiaries? Well, now you can! Hear from the leaders of Lean Left’s March Beneficiaries as they describe their efforts to build lasting progressive, Democratic power in “the most purple state in America.” 

  • Grassroots to Win in North Carolina Fundraiser, Wednesday, April 6 at 7 pm. Co-sponsored by Lean Left Vermont and thirteen organizations in blue states across the country. Register/Donate here!

Wisconsin

Wisconsin has its local and judicial general election on April 5th. Local elections in WI have added importance given that all elections are run at the municipal level.  New actions will be available later in April. To learn more about what is happening in Wisconsin click here.

For more than a decade, the far-right has been undermining New Hampshire’s democratic government from the very local to the entire state government.
