OMG, this seems like so long ago…We miss you all and hope to see you soon. Stay well.
TODAY – Thursday, 5/21: If you haven’t emailed us for postcards to do at home, please do so now!
Indivisible Chicago Alliance is reaching out to voters in both Wisconsin and Michigan. We asked to join in, for whichever state they needed the help for more. We just received 2500 cards for Michigan, hopefully the first of many thousands to arrive there by way of concerned citizens in Ventura County
If you’ve already received cards from us, you are on our nifty new spreadsheet and we’ll be sending your orders out shortly.
If you haven’t received cards from us, please send us an email to email@example.com with “SEND ME POSTCARDS!” in the subject line. Please include your name, your full mailing address, your phone number in case we have questions, how many postcards you want and whether or not you also need stamps.

Indivisible Ventura, along with groups and individuals across the country, has been participating in a postcard campaign with the Reclaim our Vote campaign, organized by the Center for Common Ground. This month, the campaign has sent us 400 addresses for the next area of deliberate voter disenfranchisement – Montgomery County, Alabama.
If you have a moment, read these great reports: “Alive and Well: Voter Suppression and Election Mismanagement in Alabama,” and “Systemic Inequality and American Democracy.”

Helping from far away or in Alabama…
#1. Help Color of Change get people registered.
Today, Monday, Nov. 27th, until 11:59 p.m., is the deadline for Voter Registration. News outlets are calling this race a statistical tie between Doug Jones, who prosecuted KKK members for killing four little girls in a church bombing, and Roy Moore, a racist, homophobe and accused predatory pedophile. This is why we need to mobilize right now. Tomorrow will be too late. Help Color of Change pay for digital ads encouraging people to register.
They’ve been testing ads for the past few days, and they estimate that they can get 5 new Alabama voters to an online registration page for about $10.
If enough of us chip in, we can register thousands of voters in the next 24 hours and shift the tides of this race.
Help reach 5 new Alabama voters before the deadline ($10)
Help reach 20 new Alabama voters before the deadline ($40)
Help reach 50 new Alabama voters before the deadline ($100)
…or donate another amount.
#2. Tell you friends and relatives in Alabama to Register! Pass this information on in your social media!
