Today’s Action: Phone voters on your lunch hour to keep Congress blue!

With so many close races on the line next Tuesday, getting involved has never been more crucial. That’s why Activate America and Indivisible are hosting lunch-hour phone-banking sessions for Wisconsin Senate candidate Mandela Barnes and California House candidate Rudy Salas, two rising Democratic stars on the ballot this year. Salas stands a good chance at flipping California’s 22nd congressional district to the Democratic column, and a Barnes victory in Wisconsin would likely keep the Senate blue and knock out noted GOP coup-enthusiast Ron Johnson.

It’s clear that to hold the House and the Senate, we need progressives all over the country making calls for these candidates — no matter where you live. If you have been looking for a way to get involved, please consider lunch-hour phone banking for Barnes or Salas. The calls you make just may tip the scales in favor of reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform, etc. — everything we’ve fought so hard for! 

Phone-banking is one of the most effective ways you can pitch in from afar. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in any particular jurisdiction to join this fight. Just be ready to do good work!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
