BOSTON, MA – Jamaica Plain Progressives (JPP) Sunday Activist Afternoons

February 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Here is the plan for this Sunday’s Activist Afternoon on February 9th. We will start at 3:00pm. We will be meeting at 631 South Street, Roslindale (Thank you Laura for hosting!). 

We will have the following activity options:

1. Sending voter registration letters voters in Pennsylvania with VoteFwd (**please bring $11 for postage or venmo to ziba-cranmer**

2. Phone banking to voters on key legislation in Mass – we will be calling Public Safety Committee Chairman Naughton’s district in Worcester with Act on Mass in support of the Safe Communities Act and to Housing Committee Chairman Honan’s district on the Affordable Housing Bill. The goal is to get these bills voted out of committee by March 1st – its a critical time for both of these bills which were given a two week extension to get voted out of committee which is necessary for a full House vote this legislative session)

3. New Option: Phone banking to flip Susan Collin’s Senate seat in Maine.

If you are phone banking or text banking, please bring a phone and a laptop or tablet! 

If you are planning to come and participate in letter writing, please let us know so we can have enough letters printed in advance. The volume of letter writing has expanded significantly, which is awesome, but we are now asking participants to contribute $11 per 20 letters to cover the cost of postage. We will bring postage, envelopes, and print the letter templates that will be mailed.

Please confirm/ RSVP by replying to this email or sign up for a future activist afternoon at this link: tinyurl.com/JPPSundays but if you forget, don’t let that hold you back, just show up!

**Ziba will be the on site Captain from JP Progressives**
