Happy Final Friday, Indivisibles!

This is it. The home stretch. Midterm elections are NEXT WEEK, and we have a few more opportunities for you to get involved and get out the vote before we head to the polls on Tuesday. You’d better BELIEVE we are running daily actions till then!! Join us!

SATURDAY:

Our November 3rd canvassing trip to Lewiston, ME is officially FULL! Wow. Thank you so much to those who are giving an entire day to Jared Golden’s ME-02 Congressional campaign. It’s an incredibly tight race, so our support really matters in this one. If you would still like to canvass, you can RSVP here, and someone from Golden’s campaign will contact you with other canvassing opportunities. Right now, there is a particular need for canvassers on election day in areas other than Lewiston.

SUNDAY

Extended Activist Afternoons! We’ll be making calls for Jared Golden from 3-6pm at Workbar (45 Prospect Street in Central Square). Bring a laptop and a cellphone (both fully charged, and bring your chargers), and bring a friend along with you! Facebook event here.

If you have never phonebanked before, we are more than happy to train you. If you can’t make it for the full three hours – no problem! Stop by and give any amount of time that you can.

MONDAY

Join us for a special GOTV (Get Out the Vote) Activist Afternoons to text and call for Jared Golden. Texting is an excellent way to reach many people quickly as we get down to the wire the day before the election. We will also have a phonebanking option from 6-8pm, if you’d prefer. As always, bring a charged phone and laptop, your chargers, and invite anyone who might want to participate! Facebook event here.

If you plan on text banking, please visit this site and fill out a short form so that you can receive instructions on how to use the Hustle texting app.

TUESDAY

Take a deep breath. We made it. Join us at Aeronaut Brewery (14 Tyler Street, Somerville), from 5-11pm for an election watch party. Facebook event here. This is a free event! I (Erin) plan to swing by around 8:30pm, and will stick around for a while.

^Like this, but with anxiety-inducing political coverage instead of soothing music.

We’re so close!! Thank you to all who have contributed their time, energy, money, sanity, and any other resources to our election efforts. Keep an eye out for some kind of social gathering in the weeks after the election, and an org-wide meeting in late November or early December. It’s time to celebrate, re-charge, and figure out what’s next.

See you this weekend.

Yours in community,
