Action Alerts – Week of October 19

Nobody Is Above the Law in Syracuse

Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams. 

The election is just 3 weeks away. If interested in Get Out the Vote opportunities, contact Joan Durant at joandurant69@gmail.com for a list of opportunities.  In addition, if you would like an 8.5 x 11 Get-Out-The Vote poster, designed by Elaine Denton, for your office, faith community, neighborhood businesses, etc., contact Elaine Wolf at elainewolf0148@gmail.com.

Phone-banking and text-banking opportunities to support local and national campaigns continue this week.

And, please sign up to Protect The Results  in response to the possibility that President Trump may try to contest or ignore the election results if he loses. If it comes to that, defending the election results may require mass, sustained, non-violent demonstrations nationwide. If you haven’t done so already, please sign up at https://protecttheresults.com/.

Voter Protection Phone Bank – join the NC Dems Voter Protection team phone banks to make critical voter protection calls.  Calls will be important to the success in combating voter suppression and protecting the vote — for absentee ballots, at the polls and reaching every democratic voter at risk of disenfranchisement. Calls will be made to voters whose ballots need to be cured and to recruit people in NC to be in-person canvassers to go to the doors of people whose ballots were rejected and can’t be reached by phone. New volunteers will always receive training at the start of the shift.  For more information or to volunteer, click here
