BOS Boston (Allston) Letters to North Carolina Voters (with North Carolina BBQ!)
August 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
It’s time to get to work on 2020!
Help Swing Left Greater Boston and Vote Forward flip one of the most gerrymandered districts in North Carolina, NC-09! We will be writing letters to low-propensity voters who are very likely to vote for Democrats when they do cast a ballot, just in time for the 9/10 election for Dan McCready in NC-09.
We want North Carolina voters to know that :
- Every voter has the right to be counted
- Voter suppression and gerrymandering can be overcome
- Voters want effective government, not partisan politics
- No Republican seat is safe in 2020
- Trump’s endorsement doesn’t guarantee victory
Can you help reach these likely-Democratic voters? We will customize, address, and stamp 20 letters each. You can contribute stamps or make a contribution to defray mailing costs. With elections determined by razor-thin margins in key states, your efforts will mean the difference between victory and defeat.
Join other friendly volunteers for some North Carolina BBQ sliders*, and who want to take back our democracy! Just fill out the information on the far right side of the screen.
Please feel free to have friends, family, and colleagues RSVP and join us as we build the good government we want and deserve! Please make sure they RSVP (or that you RSVP for them)
Overwhelming evidence showed Republicans committed one of the worst cases of modern election fraud to try to steal this congressional seat. Please consider donating to Swing Left’s Dan McCready/NC-09 fund
Swing Left is all about the power of small donations. Please donate what you can.
Look forward to seeing you soon!
*probably North Carolina style (vinegar-based) pulled chicken sliders and vegan coleslaw. Please let us know if you prefer vegan BBQ tempeh.
We are conveniently located in Union Square, Boston (Allston), near the corner of Cambridge and Brighton (near Twin Donuts)! Easy access to bus and train, including: 57 (Kendall-Watertown Square), 64 (Central Square), 66 (Dudley-Harvard Square), B Train (green line), and Boston Landing commuter rail (Framingham-Worcester line).
We will send the address after you RSVP.
Where? This district is located in the the south-central part of the state of North Carolina.
Why this one? The 2018 general election for this seat was marred by election fraud perpetrated by a consultant for the Republican candidate. The special election on September 10th, 2019 is a re-do of that extremely close race, and a great opportunity to send a message by electing a progressive candidate in a traditionally dark-red district.
Which voters? We’re writing letters to low-propensity voters who are very likely to vote for Democrats when they do cast a ballot.
