NWSOFA Indivisible October 2020 Progressive Newsletter

NEWSLETTER and CALENDAR OCTOBER 2020
IT’S ALL ABOUT GETTING OUT THE VOTE!
We Know that you’ll Vote
but
What about your neighbor?
The most important element in every election is getting voters to the polls—these get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts make the difference between winning and losing office.
If you’ve been wondering what you can do to help make that happen you’ve come to the right newsletter.
We at NWSOFA-INDIVISIBLE have been actively working to reach out to voters in our state and in swing states around the country……writing postcards and letters, manning phone banks, distributing literature and putting up signs in our yards and neighborhoods.
You Can Help in this Effort too!
Just click on one of the links below to connect with groups who are organizing events right now to get voters out. Also check out our group’s events listed below for this month to see how you can get more information and join in and help.
Keep your eyes open for updates throughout the month from NWSOFA-INDIVISIBLE

The fiscal year 2020 budget deficit is projected to exceed $3 trillion, more than twice the previous record set in President Bush’s last budget year.
