Momtivist Progress Playdate: Vote Like a PRO

Sunday at 3 PM – 5 PM

435 Eton Dr, Burbank, CA 91504-2943, United States

(private home)

ALL THE INFO YOU NEED TO VOTE LIKE A PRO (and get others to do the same).

Our own Emily Weisberg will give us the rundown on what we need to know to vote with confidence and how to take meaningful action to get others voting, too.

What she’ll cover:
– The structure of elected officials
– How to vote smart: understanding independent expenditures, party slates, and campaign finance
– What is down ballot voting: gaining confidence in propositions and bills, judges and other elected officials, and where to find this info
– How to take action: voter registration, disseminating information about voting, getting involved locally, text- and phone-banking, and the secret joy of canvassing

During her presentation, we will have CHILDCARE PROVIDED, suggested donation is $8/kid. Please email us at momtivist@gmail.com with the number of children you will need care for and their ages.

After the presentation, we will join the kiddos to socialize and postcard for Reclaim Our Vote. Reclaim Our Vote phones/texts/postcards/canvasses voters in communities of color in voter suppression states. The goal is to empower voters to register and to vote, beating back local and state efforts to de-register them, purge them from the voting rolls, and more. We need to help people exercise their right to vote, particularly in places where they are denied to do so and devalued.

This is the first of what we hope will be monthly Sunday progress playdates! Join us!
