Resistance is Local: If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
November 6 is important for the entire country, and we need folks on the ground in DC. Without local organizing, all the work we do for paid family leave, higher wages, quality public education, affordable housing, and so much more will be in jeopardy. Right now, the corporate lobby is trying to take over the DC Council and State Board of Education, and, without your help, they might succeed.
Over the next year, we know that many of these issues will come to a head on the Council dais. Will DC move toward greater racial and economic equity, or away?
Early voting is happening now through Friday evening, so your first priority is to vote. To vote and schmooze with the JUFJ Campaign Fund, meet me and all of our endorsed candidates at 8:30 AM on Friday morning, 11/2 at the Columbia Heights Community Center for Bagels and Lox at the Ballot Box!
It doesn’t matter if you only have a few minutes or a few hours. Your help is crucial:
If you only have 30 minutes: Make calls from the comfort of your home or wherever is convenient for you
If you’re only available on weeknights: Make calls from the comfort of your home or wherever is convenient for you or canvass with the campaigns or in your neighborhood
If you have daytime availability and/or flexibility: Help cover the polls on Election Day (or during early voting); Election Day poll coverage is also needed before and after standard business hours
If none of our planned events work for you: email Elizabeth Heyman and she will find something that does
Let’s fight hate together, one step and one vote at a time.
