8/11/19 Cal Away Team Canvass Day this Sunday
This Sunday, INDIVISIBLE Sacramento is canvassing with the Cal Away Team in CA-04, El Dorado County. We’ll be knocking on the doors of likely Democratic voters who did not vote in the 2016 election and reminding them about the 2020 primary and general. The goal, of course, is to defeat Republican congressional incumbent Tom McClintock. If you canvassed with Cal Away for the midterms, you know how easy it is – just a friendly reminder service! INDIVISIBLE Sacramento has adopted this Sunday as our Special Day, so come on out and support the effort. Start time is 10am or 11am, your choice. Location with RSVP. RSVP here.
