Dear OSTPDX Members,


Gearing up for our upcoming general meeting, I’d like to invite you to familiarize yourselves with Swing Left’s “Super State Strategy for 2020” which focuses on engaging new voters and raising early money. One Small Thing PDX is looking forward to working with Swing Left for this project through the 2020 election cycle. During the meeting you’ll have the opportunity to participate in an action so if you are planning on attending, please take a moment to RSVP here so that we are prepared with sufficient supplies.


Announcements


Changing the Course of History

Effective Grassroots Engagement

In the 2020 Elections


OSTPDX invites you to participate in the Oct 29, 2019 fall kickoff meeting. We are delighted to host Erica Goldman, Regional Organizing Coordinator for Swing Left. She will present Swing Left’s outcomes-based strategy to win key elections in the eleven “super states” – the states that can help the Democrats retake the White House, flip the Senate and turn state legislatures blue.


You will learn how you can take action to engage with voters in the super states by writing letters, participating in fundraising or on canvassing. The night of the meeting we will participate in a letter writing campaign to help get out the vote for an upcoming key election in Virginia. Let’s help turn the Virginia General Assembly blue and end anti-democratic gerrymandering. RSVP here, we need to know the number of attendees to have sufficient materials for our action item.


Place: Subud Center 3185 NE Regents Dr Portland Oregon

Time: Program starts promptly at 7:00 PM doors open at 6:30

RSVP today!
