We did it. Four years ago we came together with one goal: defeat Donald Trump and end his policy agenda. This weekend that goal became a reality. Because of our hard work and the efforts of activists like us all around America, Trump will not be president on January 21, 2021.
The election looked very close at first, but as the final votes are being reported, it’s clear that America has sent a strong message. President-Elect Biden is now over 50.7% in the popular vote, which is the highest total any nominee has received against an incumbent president since 1932.
We did it. We have earned the right to celebrate. So please take a deep breath, a sigh of relief that we have averted the worst. But it isn’t over – we have more to do. Our monthly meeting is next week, and we have less than two months to finish flipping the U.S. Senate.
Our November meeting is next Wednesday, November 18th, at 7:00. As usual these days, it’s a Zoom meeting. You can join the meeting at this link, or just to to Zoom.us and enter meeting number 817 3826 3806.
This is an important meeting for us to talk about our next steps, what we want to do next, and how we can help with the upcoming special elections in Georgia.
Speaking of Georgia, there are two huge Senate runoffs on January 5th. We know what we have to do: reach out to Georgia voters in every way we can.
Texting – Our texting army is ready to get back into action. If you’re part of the text team, you can find information about the Georgia text campaigns in this Slack channel.
Phone Calls – Swing Left is leading phone banking sessions every Sunday at 1:00. It’s the most direct way we can connect with Georgia voters. Details on these phone banks are at the 2020 Coalition website. Please join a phone bank – you cannot beat the personal connection that you get with a phone call.
Postcards – We will be sending thousands of postcards. We don’t have them printed yet, but we will soon, and we will send you details as soon as they are available.
Funding – Those postcards are going to cost us some money. We estimate it will be about $500 for printing and up to $2,000 for postage. If you are interested in contributing toward our postcard campaign, please visit our ActBlue page to donate to Indivisible Sacramento. We are incredibly grateful to all who have contributed to our group.
Thank you all!
