Wave of the Week-Archived-10-6

Each week, Together for 2020 offers you an action, an event and a candidate to explore —
Three ways to get involved in shaping the upcoming elections. Become part of the Blue Wave!


Text-a-Thon II
Back by Popular Demand

Ask anyone who was there for our August Text-a-Thon: We had a blast AND texted vote-by-mail messages to fully one-third of all registered Democrats in the swing state of North Carolina.

On Oct. 10, volunteers like you will invite ONE MILLION voters in swing states to back Biden/Harris and put out the dumpster fire of this administration.

Please sign up! Unless you have already trained with 2020 Victory Thru Text before, you will need to enroll in the training and take their quiz.

ThruText uses your computer or tablet, not your own phone, to ensure your privacy. We’re planning the Text-a-Thon details now, inviting inspiring guests, talented DJs (who take requests before the event), and people who want to have some fun and camaraderie while helping turn out the vote. So far we’ve confirmed Mayor Pete Buttigieg; Jaime Harrison, SC candidate for U.S. Senate; and Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley, who will cheer us on.

Invite your friends and join the party!

Sign up for training today.

Sat., Oct. 10, 3–6 p.m. EDT


Prevent Election Theft and Voter Suppression

Tuesday, Oct. 6, 7–8:30 p.m. EDT

Every day, the GOP sneaks in another trick to steal the election. But we can fight back.

 Find specific things that you – yes, you – can do right now to ensure that every vote is cast and every vote counts. Recruiting people in swing states to staff voter assistance hotlines, to train as a poll observer, and to apply to become a poll worker are just some actions we will cover in the Zoom event Voter Suppression, Election Theft: What You Can Do!

Hear from:
Liza Conrad, director of Vote Protection for Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight
Quentin Palfrey, chair of Voter Protection Corps and the 2008 Ohio voter protection director for the Obama-Biden campaign
Brett Edkins, political director of Stand Up America, which is partnering with Indivisible on Protect the Results

The event is organized by Together for 2020 and Act Together 2020 and cosponsored by Swing Left Greater Boston.

Together for 2020 and our affiliates offer lots of ways to get involved in protecting the vote.


Jaime Harrison, U.S. Senator for South Carolina

Talk about a candidate who can lift all boats! Jaime Harrison’s life is a testament to that.

His genuine dedication to helping others is attracting support as his campaign takes off in South Carolina.

And, when he wins, voters will send Chief Hypocrite Lindsay Graham back home. Harrison, a true-blue champion of ordinary people, needs our support now more than ever.

See what Harrison is all about in this short video.
