We fundraise, campaign and get out the vote. We host speakers and candidate forums, write postcards, make phone calls and connect with our neighbors. And in the process of electing Dems and making government more responsive and more representative, we have a lot of fun.
Don’t miss our September meeting TONIGHT, Thursday, Sept. 16 at 7 pm. We’ll be discussing the Supreme Court and the politics of Roe v. Wade with W&M professor Christine Nemacheck. More details here.
EARLY VOTING STARTS TOMORROW, FRIDAY, SEPT. 17! Sign up to greet voters at the early vote center at the James City County Rec Center. We could especially use setting up and taking down the canopy, signs and table each morning and evening.
Join Democrats across the Peninsula for UNITE THE PENINSULA RALLY AND CANVASS at Newport News Park this Saturday, Sept. 18 at 11 am. Sign up here.
We’re still writing postcards and hanging doorhangers for our great Democratic candidates. Choose from cards forthe 93rd (Del. Mike Mullin‘s district) or the 96th (where Dr. Mark Downey is running) or for Dan Lukich, our write-in candidate for WJCC School Board, Jamestown District.We’ve also got doorhangers for important target neighborhoods.Sign up here.
Pick up yard signs for our candidates. We have signs for our statewide candidates (a combined sign for McAuliffe, Ayala, and Herring), and we also have signs for Delegate Mullin and Dr. Downey. Find it annoying when you see signs for the other team? Fight back with a yard sign of your own! You can pick up signs on Jen Tierney’s front porch (2824 Linden Lane) if you live in the 93rd House of Delegates, or MK Sizemore’s house (4704 Yarrow Court) if you live in the 96th. Remember, put signs on your property or on property where you’ve gotten permisson. Signs on road rights-of-way and public property will be removed.
Give some thought to joining NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE. Organizing at the neighborhood level helps us recruit volunteers and communicate about important issues neighbor-to-neighbor and friend-to-friend. Want to organize an interest group you’re involved with, or a group of your friends? That works too. Or if you’re already a part of an existing neighborhood group, we’d love to work with you.
