Cambridge, MA Music + Activism: Reclaim Our Vote Postcards

December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Voter purging and other forms of voter suppression are taking away the civil rights of people of color who are being put on “inactive” or “unregistered” lists at a 16% higher rate than other voters. Swing Left has partnered with Reclaim Our Vote to contact people of color in Texas and urge them to check their registration status, re-register and vote. Swing Left postcard-writing campaigns are a key part of this process.

Please join our group of friendly volunteers as we send notification postcards to voters in communities of color with information on how to check to make sure they haven’t been purged from voter rolls. This is your chance to give voters a heads-up about Republican stealth-purge operations so they can protect their voting rights and help take back the Senate and the White House.

Do postcard campaigns work? Reclaim Our Vote has found a 25% increase in voter registration among those people who receive postcards. In Texas, with Republican margins shrinking to razor-thin proportions in recent years and 38 electoral votes at stake, your efforts may mean the difference between victory and defeat.

RSVP and join us as we stamp out voter suppression! We will also be celebrating three birthdays – those of Tony Kolarik, Lynne Chuang, and Frances Love – for which Lisa is bringing a sheet cake.

Handicap Accessibility: The bar is accessible, but there are 2 steps up to the restrooms.

RSVP here.
