Go Doorbelling with Derek Sanders

When and Where: If you are able to come out and help Derek with the door-knocking activities, please reach out to Derek about the details on the door-knocking. He typically hits a different area in Thurston County every day, so it's crucial to make sure to contact him about where he is door-knocking on that day.

Why: In Congressional District 3 (just south of us), GOP candidate Joe Kent is an election-denier, replacement conspiracy theorist, federal abortion ban supporter who cozies up with Nazis and Holocaust deniers. He is running against pro-democracy, reproductive rights supporter Marie Glusenkamp Perez.
