Virtual Meet Up Saturday, April 4, 3-5:00 PM Because we can't have our monthly activism meetings in person, we're going to meet on line with Zoom, share a drink (virtually), and talk about our activities. Kind of an activist social hour.
Simply click this link and follow the instructions. https://zoom.us/j/7554108391 If you have any trouble connecting, go to Minuteman Indivisible on Slack and put a message in the general channel firstname.lastname@example.org

Lucy McBath Fundaiser We had a very successful fundraiser for Lucy McBath on March 22. Minuteman Indivisible joined with Force Multiplier to raise a good sum for Lucy. She was very appreciative. Lucy is working hard to hold onto GA 06. She flipped it in 2018 and it is one of the most vulnerable seats in Congress.
Cal Cunningham Fundraiser
Save the date: Sunday, April 26
Our next fundraiser is for Cal Cunningham, who is running for the Senate to replace Tom Tillis in North Carolina. We will again be joining with Force Multiplier to help Cal win a Senate seat in one of the most important battleground states this November. Details to follow.
Minuteman Indivisible Texting Opportunities
These are a few peer-to-peer texting opportunities available as of today (3/27). Note that campaigns are subject to change at any time and don’t necessarily run on weekends.
Environmental Voter Project
Campaign: Encourage eligible Pennsylvania voters to sign up for vote-by-mail.
Campaign: Checking in with MoveOn members and sharing a resource page on how they can help flatten the curve, encourage others to do the same, and take other actions during this public health and political crisis.
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.
