Weekly Update, 10/25
Are you doing your part to help win the midterm elections? If you’re looking for ways to get involved, we have about a million of them:
Postcards for Jaclyn Moreno
First, we’re writing postcards for Jaclyn Moreno tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at 6:30 at the Round Table Pizza at 398 Florin Road. Jaclyn is a local Indivisible pioneer and an excellent candidate who is running for the Cosumnes Services District. It would be amazing to have an Indivisible leader elected right here in the Sacramento area, so come on out and join us for pizza and postcards!
Call the Governor to Pass Our Bills
As of Monday evening, Governor Jerry Brown still has not signed two very important bills: SB822 and AB3131. SB822 would establish the strongest Net Neutrality protections in America. And if California makes Net Neutrality the law, it will have benefits for people all over the country. AB3131 is sponsored by Indivisible. It is a common sense transparency measure that requires police departments to notify the public when they police military-grade equipment.
If you’d like to hear a recorded message from Indivisible with more details about AB3131, call 1 (833) 522-8923. You will be automatically connected to the Governor’s office after the message.
If you already know the details and just want to call directly, you can reach Governor Brown’s staff at (916) 445-2841.
Adopt a Vote Center – And More PostCards
Join us this Friday to write postcards to write postcards to voters through California Away Team for Congressman Ami Bera’s district, CA 07. You should also attend this event if you’re interested in helping to increase voter registration and turnout at Indivisible Sacramento’s adopted Vote Center. We’ve adopted the Marina Vista Community Center for this November’s election, and we will be holding a planning session for that effort while we write postcards. You can RSVP to attend at CalAway Team’s website. It is located at a private residence, so they’ll provide the address when you RSVP.
If you can’t make it on Friday but still want to help with the Adopt-a-Vote-Center project,please send an e-mail to Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Adopt-a-Vote Volunteer.” We’ll add you to the e-mail list to keep you notified of activities and ways to get involved.
Phone Banks Galore
Postcards are great, but a phone call is an even better chance to connect with a potential voter.
Organize Win Legislate (OWL) is hosting local phone banks for a ton of great candidates around the country, including future Florida Governor Andrew Gillum and future Arizona Senator Kyrstin Sinema this weekend. Check out their Facebook page for details on upcoming phone banks.
And the Indivisible website has more chances to make calls to make a difference. You can call from the comfort of your own home. Go to the Indivisible.org phone bank page for details.
California Away Team
And what’s even better than a phone call? Talking to voters in person! If you haven’t volunteered for California Away Team yet, now is your chance. All you have to do is knock on the doors of registered Democrats who have had weak voting turnout in the past and remind them to vote this time. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it’s very low stress.
Click here to volunteer in Roseville or Cameron Park to help Jessica Morse defeat Trump-stooge Tom McClintock.
At this point, new events are popping up faster than we can post them in this newsletter. So make sure you keep checking our website to keep in the loop. You never know when we’re going to announce something you want to take part in.
