PROTECT THE RESULTS

ZOOM ROOM/Community CAFEs

Now you know how to help. The next step? Bring your friends and get them involved too! We call it Community CAFEs: Community Action For Everyone. You can find an existing CAFE or, better yet, make your own!

Set up a weekly electoral work meeting on Zoom or other virtual platform. Give it a fun name, invite group members & promote it regularly. Think of it as meeting on Fridays at someone’s house: write postcards, make calls, send some texts. Ask members to (1) Pick a campaign or two, (2) Pick a tactic or two, (3) Pour a cup of tea or a glass of wine and, (4) Jump on a Zoom call with your group for company.

This is the election of our lives, and it won’t be easy. But with your hard work, we can reclaim our democracy.
