Our own ORD2 Indivisible Letter Writing Team has written an impressive number of letters to voters with Vote Forward! Last count was over 15,500, wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you, to our many letter writers from near and far who joined us in the Garden or on Zoom to write thousands of letters. What you have done – what you are doing – is getting us closer to what we all want and need – the ouster of the current administration in Washington DC and the welcome of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris!
Our final Garden Party takes place on Tuesday, October 13 from 10 to noon! Bring all your letters that day. We’ll have some extra stamps on hand, but please let us know ahead if you need large quantities.
We’ll spend the first hour making sure that our letters are stamped, sealed, and placed in postal trays.
During the second hour, we’ll be treated to a special mini Zoom concert with Roy Zimmerman. Roy writes hilarious political songs with his wife, Melanie, and before COVID-19, they toured the country constantly, bringing laughter and encouragement to the “Blue Dots” – the most progressive people in some of the least progressive places in the nation. “I get accused of preaching to the converted,” says Roy, “but that’s not how I think about it. I think of it as entertaining the troops.”
Please invite all your friends to join us on Zoom (even if they have been texting, or something else, instead of writing letters) – the more the merrier and we have room for 100 on Zoom! Have a preview of what to expect here: https://youtu.be/ilk1RX-tElI
Following the concert, we’ll take turns reading from “Trumpty Dumpty wanted a Crown,” verses for a despotic age by John Lithgow. And of course, there will be a group photo session at the end!
