Thursday Resistance – Come join us!

It is a Pizza Party and Postcard Party all in one fun package! Yippee!!

2 campaigns = 1 party! Meet us at Santino’s in Ventura, TODAY, Thursday, January 25th.
(Facebook link here)

We will flip District 25, help a progressive candidate in Pennsylvania and have fun while doing it!  

#1 – Steve Knight:
We will hand write some little mementos for Republican Rep. Knight — postcards of congratulations on his retirement from Congress. Tick-tock, time is up Mr. Knight, please leave congress, and give us a vacancy to fill with our progressive candidate!

Let’s hope we are as successful as the group who helped Rep. Issa decide not to run for re-election in Orange County. Following their good example, we will also hold a Retirement Party for Knight at his office in Simi Valley on Saturday, Jan 27th. After we will celebrate at Chuys.

#2 – Conor Lamb:
The other campaign is for Conor Lamb, a Democratic congressional candidate from PA. ( Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District covers parts of four counties. He is a former Marine and federal prosecutor from a well-known political family. He is strong on working family policies, solid on healthcare and other progressive values.

Come join us!
Stamp donations would be gratefully accepted.

Postcard Party for Florida!

Join us for little protest for the holidays!


Get out of the house and hang with your fellow resisters for a couple of hours of positive action, along with good cheer and munchies. Santa hats, festive sweaters and extra holiday treats you don’t want to eat all by yourself, all welcome.We will be joining a national effort to help elect Margaret Good of Florida to their State House District #72. The election is on Feb. 13th, but they’re working on a early mail-in campaign, so we need to get to cracking and take one more step to getting a Democratic majority back in every governing body! It all matters.

Our appeal will be directly to the voters in Florida – NOT mass political mailings, because all of our cards will be handwritten. Each will be a message from one voter to another. We are simply asking Floridians to do that most American thing — VOTE!

Join a party in Ventura at one of the times below so we can have fun while writing and personalizing the cards.If you have fun stickers, extra colored pens and other art supplies (stamps and ink pads?) you can bring, that would be great. Extra postcards and stamps much appreciated also.Please pick a day (or days – the more, the merrier) from the list below, and let us know when you would like to join.
