This is the newsletter from the group. I want to share the latest info on Virginia with you. The link for the plan gives a detailed picture of what’s going on in that arena. The link for more info about internships gets some detail about that program.

Sign Up for a Virginia Summer Internship/Externship:  

You or someone you know looking to make a real difference and has a few weeks this summer… say, a student age 16 or older, or a retiree?  Please contact Bill ASAP!  Our Virginia campaigns are looking for volunteers to do fieldwork, office work, events, and other activities that build resumes and utilize your specialized skills!  Training and local housing in Virginia Beach provided.  Alternatively, if you’d like to sponsor an intern/extern, also contact Bill!

Not only do we have elections in Virginia in 2019, but we also have to start laying down the groundwork for the 2020 elections now by getting people registered to vote.  Come down, bring your organisers, activists and friends, and talk to other activist groups in the East Bay, big and small and let’s coordinate our actions for maximum impact.

This is for everyone looking to re-activate themselves back into the ground game.  Primarily, come to network and find out from other groups what plans we have and are making going forward.  We will also make a webinar training for Reclaim Our Vote available. For those of you not yet familiar with Reclaim Our Vote, this is a nonpartisan effort to reach out to under-represented voters who may otherwise be removed from the voting rolls. We can help combat the voter suppression efforts happening in Virginia and other states by sharing information with impacted voters.

Thanks and see you all out there!
