During this stressful and depressing week, let’s try to keep our eye on the prizes:
- The Virginia election. Please continue to pass around our ActBlue link to family and friends.
- We will shortly be sending out a sign-up link for the Origami lesson with Ann Overton and sale of Janet Grodin’s prints on Saturday August 24th 1:30-5:00 so tell your friends about it.
- Next meeting is this coming Sunday, July 28, 4:30-5:45 at our house. We will talk about gerrymandering and also new apps to entice young people to vote, as well as finalizing the plans for August 24th.
- Meanwhile, here are some action items: A) Tony the Democrat has a good post with the results of a study about postcards and their study found: Sending handwritten postcards to voters definitely had a noticeable effect on Vote by Mail signups among Pasco Democrats. Now it is time to do the same for Florida. Just log on to poscardstovoters.org. B) Make a small donation to help the re-enfranchised voters in Florida pay the poll-taxes that are being used to keep them from voting: wegotthevote.org and C) Need some friends and snack to get those postcard and letters writings vibes back in action? Join with other writers on Saturday July 27th 3:00-5:00 at Ellen’s House, 20 Jerome St. in Piedmont.
