“Wake up, America!” #BLM protests & other antiracist, anti-fascist & pro-democratic things to do…

Weekend Edition – Sunday 9/27 – We are rising.

The last time Americans united against fascism, over 400,000 of our troops died – soldiers of all races, political groups, religions and ethnicities. Never could those soldiers have guessed that a future American president, a corrupt and compromised authoritarian, would label anti-fascism “domestic terrorism” and condemn the press, Democrats and immigrants as enemies of the state.

So now we are united again, as “E-day” – November 3rd, approaches, to remove this fascist from our White House. His only weapons are lies. Our weapons are ballots and our strategies involve engaging voters and getting them to use their power.

We are keeping lists of opportunities to help – Phonebanking (there are several opportunities to do this TODAY!) Textbanking! Letter Writing! Postcards! along with other great things to do!: Click here. And because phonebanking seems the most unimaginable for us introverts, we’ve posted this video to show that we too can become very good at this.

Events happening today.
