Help to Get Out the Vote and Flip it Blue

Worried about the state of our Democracy and want to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? Join us for an easy and fun way to help get out the vote in flippable US House Districts around California. We’ll decorate and write postcards, and personalize letters to voters and help to flip these red districts blue. Sending a reminder close to an election is the most effective way to encourage on the fence and uncommitted voters to get to the polls, and we’re hoping it will be even more effective with inspiring handwritten notes and decorations from us!
