SAT, SEP 26 - General meeting (1:00 - 2:30 PM)
MEET THE ORGANIZER: NEAL MORGAN
Ever wonder what an organizer does? Why do campaigns rely on them so much? What critical activities do organizers oversee in the final days of a campaign to increase chances for a "win"? What is Sister District doing in those final weeks to bolster the chances for Rep. Laurie Pohutsky and Christine Morse to win seats in the Michigan State House of Representatives and flip the chamber blue? Join us on September 26 to find out!
AND - AGAIN - WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! All of you are committed to making progress this year and we'll spend some time discussing your ideas and what you want to focus on in the 5-week run-up to the election.
*NOTE: Your confirmation email will come from Phyllis Cauley <email@example.com>.
EVERY WED AND SAT: PHONE BANKING FOR MICHIGAN
Virtual Phone Banks for Michigan: Join Sister District Sacramento to phone bank for its candidates for the Michigan State House. Real structural change starts at the state and local levels. Help us flip the Michigan State House blue and give Governor Whitmer one chamber to work with! You can also donate to help flip Michigan blue. Also, please take the time to read this email from Rita Bosworth, Founder, Sister District Project about why states and state-level elections are so critical, especially right now.
