    Volunteer Opportunity: VA State Elections GOTV/Postcard Party - Tuesday, Sept. 17, plus canvassing oppportunity

    We're going to keep the postcard-writing momentum going Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. We'll be at Red Bear Brewing Company (209 M Street NE).

    We have addresses to finish up for Dan Helmer and Sheila Bynum-Coleman. If we complete those, we'll move on to addresses for Wendy Gooditis.

    You can RSVP for the Sept. 17 event at https://www.ward6dems.org/postcard_party - it's not required, but it does help us know how many supplies to bring. 

    Can't make it on the 17th? Our plan is to keep doing these every other Tuesday until the end of October (the campaigns want the cards to drop the week of October 21). Details about the additional postcard parties will be forthcoming. To join our GOTV team, please email our Outreach Director Andria Thomas at resistrisedc@gmail.com.

    BONUS: Canvassing Opportunity with the Ward 3 Dems, Saturday, Sept. 19

    H.R. 51, the DC Statehood Bill, will have a hearing in the House Committee on Oversight and Reform (Rayburn Building, Rm. 2154) on Sept. 19, 2019. It's time to make history. We need everyone who supports DC Statehood to plan to be there. Note: the room only holds 100, so there will be a line and there may be an overflow room.

    The best way to keep up-to-date on details is to visit ShowUp4DC and sign up for updates. 

    BONUS: Volunteer with the Statehood movement

    Statehood movement organizers are looking for volunteers for the day of, and also for a series of actions and events leading up to the actual hearing. Barbara Helmick, from DC Vote, is coordinating those efforts, so to find out what the options are and sign up, email her at bhelmick@dcvote.org

    Dan Helmer Campaign HQ in Fairfax Station, VA

    Canvassing for Dan Helmer in Virginia

    The Ward 6 Democrats are hitting the streets! On Saturday, September 28th we will be knocking doors for Dan Helmer, a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates just south of Fairfax. District 40 is the single patch of red in a sea of blue in Northern Virginia and is one of the top pickup opportunities as Democrats try to take back control of the General Assembly.

    Direct face-to-face voter contact is the most effective way to increase turnout and in this campaign every vote will count! Dan is a strong supporter of gun safety, women's rights, and recently endorsed DC statehood. Our efforts this fall will help put him over the top.

    To join us, please RSVP for this event and plan to meet at Helmer HQ (5618 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA 22039) for the 12 pm shift on Saturday, 9/28. If you need a ride or would have any questions, contact Matt LaFortune at mattlafortune@gmail.com.
