OFFICIAL “FINAL DATE TO MAIL YOUR BALLOT” IS NOVEMBER 1. DON’T TAKE A CHANCE,
USE A BALLOT BOX NEAR YOU!
DAYS UNTIL BALLOTS DUE: SEVEN!!!
A MILESTONE IN A MOVEMENT: NO REGRETS
Next week is the most important election of our lifetime – a major milestone in our movement. We have shared so many milestones together. We have called our Members of Congress, shown up at their offices, and attended town halls together. We have registered voters, canvassed, phone banked, text banked and sent postcards together.
Now we vote together. A milestone in our movement. Our movement does not end next week. November 7th we will wake up, celebrate our victories, and mourn our losses. Then we take note of what worked and what didn’t, while we make plans to stop the GOP lame duck agenda of cutting our safety net, cutting taxes for the rich, and rushing judges.
We must . . .
. . . and keep working to defend our democracy.
In one week the world will see our values, see us standing up for: human rights, healthcare, voting rights, women’s rights, black lives matter, LGTBQ rights, immigrants, those with disabilities, survivors, gun violence prevention, diversity, and truth.
No Regrets on November 7th!
We Will Continue to . . .
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in [city/town], ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I am deeply concerned that in the lame duck session the GOP will try to cut our safety net while trying to fund a wall and rush the confirmation of judges. I ask that the Senator to do all he can in the lame duck session to 1) protect our healthcare and safety net, 2) stop a new tax cut and border wall funding, and 3) stop any judges from being confirmed. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in [city/town], ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I am OUTRAGED that in the lame duck session Greg Walden and the Trump regime will try to cut our safety net while trying to fund the wall while rushing to confirmation of judges. He has SOLD US OUT, betraying the rank and file citizens of District 2 instead of protecting our healthcare and safety net, stopping deficit busting new tax cuts, and blocking delusional border wall funding. I’m voting to protect Oregon values, something Greg Walden has failed to do.”
