October 1, 2018 Events & Updates


This week is sure to be another rough week! Let’s turn our frustration and anger into action to get out the vote. What better way is there to send a clear message to Washington, than showing up in droves to support Progressive Democratic Candidates? Can you commit to helping make contact with voters this week by phonebanking or canvassing? Together, we can do this!

“The Rubber Hits the Road  – Get Out the Vote!” Learn what you can do to ensure a Huge Blue Wave in November.
