Activism Evening - Together for 2020 Monday, April 13, 7:00 PM Because we can't have our monthly activism meetings in person, we're going to meet on line with Zoom. We held a virtual meeting on April 4 that was hugely successful. This meeting on the 13th is our regularly scheduled activism evening, but instead of meeting at First Parish, we'll see you on Zoom! We'll have campaign updates, new activities and conversation about continuing the work to restore our democracy. If you have suggestions for meeting content or questions, please email us! firstname.lastname@example.org Simply click this link and follow the instructions. https://zoom.us/j/855062165?

It’s especially important for every town to get as many census forms submitted especially during the Covid-19 crisis. Did you know that hospitals get federal funding based on the census numbers for their community? More than ever, getting an accurate count of who lives in our communities matters to keeping our hospitals adequately funded as a vital health resource. Join the IMC Complete the Census Team.

Campaign: Encourage eligible Florida voters to sign up for vote-by-mail..
Many areconcerned that fear of COVID-19 will keep Americans from going to the polls on Election Day. The Resilient Elections During Quarantines and Natural Disasters Act of 2020 would give all Americans the right to vote by mail if 25% of states declare a state of emergency, grant $500 million to help states prepare for election disruptions, and require postage-paid self-sealing envelopes for ballots. Call your Congresspeople and ask them to co-sponsor this important legislation.
