Tues – 8/7: Summer Activities for Resisters!

(Three first time volunteers who became politically active following last November’s US Presidential elections, look for addresses while canvassing on a Saturday morning in a quiet residential neighborhood in Palmdale, California, going door to door trying to register voters)

Action #1 – Have a little free time? Look at our “Events List” and join in!

Check out the action here. There’s instruction for every activity, so don’t worry if it’s your first time to canvass, or register people to vote. Join in, even us introverts. Get some new skills, and meet great people.

Action #2 – Join Indivisible’s #SaveSCOTIS virtual phonebank!

Our national Indivisible is  running a national virtual phonebank to contact key voters in Arizona, Mississippi, Nevada, Tennessee, and Texas to talk about the Supreme Court seat and help flip these crucial Senate seats in November. Join in!

Sign up here for a training webinar this afternoon (7:00 EST)  for best practices for making calls and how to use their hubdialer.

Action #3 – Join in with SURJ for a webinar.

Tomorrow, August 8 at 8pm EDT, Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ) is hosting a webinar on “The Alt-Right and Immigration”.  We can register here.

Action #4 – Help PROJECT LIFELINE.

Since the US government is either unable or unwilling to provide for basic needs of immigrant detainees – sufficient water, food, hygiene products, blankets and warm clothes, humanitarian relief organization, PROJECT LIFELINE, is declaring the crisis and taking first action to help where our government has fallen short.  They are planning two caravans, one leaving from Houston and another from San Antonio and need to collect enough supplies to fill an 18-wheeler (semi) truck and 20-30 cars / trucks. We can contribute to their Amazon wishlist link  then share with our friends on social media. Their Facebook page is here and their email is projectlifeline2018@gmail.com.
