WATCH OUR APRIL 14 VIRTUAL MONTHLY MEETING: Ensuring Safe, Secure Elections During the Coronavirus Pandemic and Beyond
Since we can't meet in person, we moved our April Monthly Meeting online to a Zoom video conference meeting! Coming off the recent events with the people of Wisconsin being forced to vote in person during their Primary election and the Trump administration's mishandling of the pandemic, the meeting's theme was: "Ensuring Safe, Secure Elections During the Coronavirus Pandemic and Beyond." This week we are focusing on Indivisible's upcoming April 17 Vote By Mail: Call Your Senators Day of Action. Click on this link or see information below for details.
Many thanks to our panel of local, regional and national experts and activists who talked about voting rights, election security, election integrity, reaching voters and more. They addressed how this pandemic crisis is impacting voting and elections, and what can be done about it between now and November. We will provide links to all of the actions mentioned in our next email. Our panelists were:
Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin, Co-Founders and Co-Executive Directors, Indivisible. Speaking about the aspects of the People's Bailout that focus on making our elections safer and more accessible, especially the actions we can take now to increase access to, planning and funding for increased voting by mail in November.
