    Weekly GOTV Phonebank 9/28, @5-7:30pm

    Less than 6 weeks from Election Day! These coming weeks are crucial for getting involved and getting out the vote! Every day counts from now to Nov 3!

    We need you! Join the 46th LD GOTV efforts and Phonebank with us Every Monday evening until the General Election! Next phonebank is Monday, Sept. 28, 2020, 5pm - 7:30pm. Important Links below.

    Every day the chaos and noise is deafening. It's easy to want to tune out, vent in social media and feel helpless. However, YOU have the power to make change!

    COVID-19 has forced us to pivot our outreach approach. We cannot safely conduct in-person canvassing and instead have focused our efforts in an evening of phone banking. It's not as intimidating as it seems. We have training and scripts that easily guide you through your calls. While there are many efforts focused on the national scene we also need to drive support to get our local, state and federal officials elected to office. 

    Ballots are scheduled to be mailed on October 14th in Washington state. Here in the 46th Legislative District, maximizing turnout is key to bringing progressive change to our state. Whether it’s returning our excellent delegation back to the legislature or bringing decisive vote totals for statewide offices and initiatives, what happens in the 46th District is crucial.

    Join your local neighbors and be sure to sign up every Monday starting at 5:00 pm for 1.5 hours of making calls and being active! Please be sure to sign-up at both links, as you will be using both concurrently on the night of the phone bank. 

    Date/Time: Mon, September 28, 5pm – 7:30pm - Training begins at 5pm

    Get involved! We are also posting on our website calendar other ways to be active as well as election information. Check it out!

    Yard Signs - Last Call! We still have signs available on a first-come, first-serve basis through Saturday, October 3. Simply let us know that you are interested for available yard signs by clicking on the link below. We’ll reach out to you to arrange for a no-contact delivery or pick-up from one of our neighborhood sign distribution locations.

    Lastly, we are still looking for volunteers in the 46th for all the outreach efforts that are upcoming, so if you haven’t yet filled out the sign-up form, you can do so here: GOTV Form.

    In Solidarity,

    GOTV Team, 46th LD Democrats

     


    In Memoriam, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    As I’m sure you have now heard, United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has lost her long battle with cancer on this evening of Rosh Hashanah.

    Her tenacity in continuing to work in recent days as her health faltered has been nothing less than a gift of love to the people of our nation.  She understood, perhaps even better than we do, the consequences of a Supreme Court vacancy before the election in November.

    NPR reports that just days before her death, as her strength waned, Justice Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera:

    "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

    It is left to us to do everything we can to ensure Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s final wish is fulfilled. 

    We have much work to do.  But that is for tomorrow.

    Tonight, may we reflect upon an extraordinary life very well lived, in service to others.

    One of our Democratic friends, King County State Committeeman Nathaniel Block, wrote the following tribute. His words are so fitting that sharing his thoughts verbatim is appropriate:

    “Normally on Rosh Hashanah I post wishes for a Happy New Year of peace and joy to all. Tonight that just doesn’t feel right.

    In Jewish tradition there is a belief called Tzadikim Nistarim, that there are always thirty-six righteous people in the world who justify the existence of humanity and avert the threatened disasters of people persecuted by the enemies that surround them.

    There is no question in my mind that RBG was one of those thirty-six righteous people. The world is a worse place tonight for her loss. May her memory be a blessing.

    May we strive in the new year of 5781 to follow her example to be a righteous person and protect those persecuted and oppressed.”

    Indeed, may we all so strive to follow her example.
