Our Postcard Writing Team has shared the below letter from JALSA about how to participate in their next postcarding campaign!
As a follow up from the CBI/JALSA conversation with Eric Ward about combatting racism and anti-semitism, we are planning to bring our Western MA community together for two evenings of communal work to combat voter suppression.
On Wednesday, September 30 and Monday, October 5 we will be joining together on a Zoom call while we phone bank, text bank, and write postcards to voters in southern states who are in danger of having their votes not be counted in this election.
There are several ways to participate:
If you would like to write postcards to voters, please follow this two-step process to order a postcard packet:
Order your postcards here - JALSA Voter Outreach -- 125K Challenge
Make your $15 donation to cover the cost of postcards and shipping here - https://jalsa.kindful.com/?campaign=1044784
Your Postcard Packet will include the following:
· A bundle of 15 to 30 postcards
· A corresponding list of names and addresses (Provided by JALSA)
· A sheet of Labels printed on (Avery 5160), with critical Voter Registration and local contact information for postcard recipients
· A script (Provided by ROV)
· Instructions for completion
To reserve your postcard packet please complete the order form as soon as possible so we have time to mail you your packet. In the event that we do not have enough postcards for the event, you will receive your packet by mail at a later date, but please do join us to take part in the event as a phone banker or texter.
Phoning and Texting
Information for phoning and texting (if it is an option) will be made available on the Zoom call on September 30 and October 5.
To join us on either the 30th or the 5th you can use this zoom link:
If you have any questions about the event, please contact Maria Isabel Rosario at firstname.lastname@example.org, or David Albright at email@example.com
Thank you for joining us in the movement to combat voter suppression. Your engagement matters!
