Today’s Action: Join Indivisible for their Text Training and Action Hour!

There are so many critical progressive initiatives on the line this election — reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun safety reform, climate change action, etc. — which means we all have to do our part to ensure Democrats show up and VOTE on November 8th.

There are lots of great opportunities on Mobilize to connect with voters in key races, with varying levels of engagement and necessary experience. If phone banking or canvassing door to door doesn’t feel like a good fit, text banking could be for you — and Indivisible is holding no-experience-necessary Text Training and Action Hours twice a week until Election Day!

Sign up to attend a one-hour text-banking training session with Indivisible at 12:30PM EDT this coming Monday! The voters you reach could mean the difference between a red or blue victory next month. If this session doesn’t work with your schedule, you can also reach out for a one-on-one informational meeting. 

The margin of error for keeping the House and Senate in Democratic hands is far too thin for comfort. It’s never been more important to get out the vote and fight for our cherished rights. Sign up with Indivisible and do your part today!
