The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered PA’s gerrymandered Congressional maps be redrawn and made available by February 19, 2018. This is a big victory for our democracy: when political insiders draw districts to squash the power of voters and skew representation in Congress, we all lose.
No matter how the district is drawn, we know winning in 2018 requires a massive, volunteer-led field campaign that can mobilize tens of thousands of voters to the polls. Once the new map is released, we need to hit the ground running at full speed.
So we’re going to call every single Democratic voter in our new district – in one weekend.
You read that right: if 500 supporters sign-up for a phonebanking shift, we’ll be able to reach out to every single voter in the new district in one weekend. But we need your help.
Here’s the plan:
1. We need to expand our voter outreach infrastructure. Chip in so we can call every voter.
2. Recruit new volunteers at events this coming weekend, Feb. 18th & 19th:
Our movement has grown so large that we can’t fit everyone into a house party anymore. So we’re holding rallies with Jess King to recruit and train new volunteers, right before the new map is released. We’re hosting events in Lancaster City, Ephrata, Hempfield, Manheim Township, and Kennett Square.
Paul Ryan and his corporate donors are planning to spend $100 million to try and save vulnerable Republicans like Rep. Smucker in 2018. But if we keep growing, our movement will beat their money. Let’s do it. Sign up here to phonebank.
