We Are In the Final Stretch
We wish to thank the OI members for attending the All Member Protect the Results Meeting on 10/19/20. Many of us have been together now for four long, incredibly divisive years. These years went beyond our worst fears and expectations, and continue to do so hour by hour. We are now reaching the end of our stated goals: get Trump out of the White House, turn the Senate blue, Keep our Congressional Seats, and fight for Local Candidates to keep the State and Thurston County out of regressive hands. We are in the final stretch.
There was much information and links to locations and people that were brought up during the meeting that were hard to capture. We want to share with you some of what happened in our meeting, and the ways of following through on the actions suggested as well as some of the fun stuff.
First the Fun Stuff:
Opening Music Video: Arise, Arise
Video from Democratic Officials: Thank You Indivisible
Closing Music Video: All You Fascists Bound to Lose
Actions for the Protect the Results Launch
Sign up to join the Protect the Results Launch Event, if called to do so: Search the Protect the Results website rally event page by entering your zip code. This will bring you to the closest planned event near your location, which should be “Count Every Vote in Olympia”, RSVP there.
Sign up for the Safety Team for the Protect the Results Launch Event: Melinda Holman is the team lead and would be happy to discuss any concerns you might have. There is a training program for this through the Protect the Results group on Wednesday evening, 10/21/20. Sign up here. If you cannot make that meeting, the video will be available for later viewing.
Sign up for Sign Distribution at the Protect the Results Launch Event: About 250 18” x 24” signs and several 6 ft banners will be available. The volunteers will help distribute signs to those standing 6 ft apart, and retrieve them at the end of the launch for events later in the week. There will also be flags to distribute.
Other ways you can help NOW and things to do:

Join the “Calling Arizona Voters” sessions to elect Mark Kelly to the US Senate and Joe Biden to the US Presidency. Phone banking is the number one way of reaching voters. We will train you and work with you through phone banking sessions. Sign up here.
Sign Up for Sign Waving for Candidates: These are 1.5 hours shifts, on a popular Olympia street corner. Although Covid-19 appropriate, catch up with old friends, and make new friends. The candidates themselves are often there, get to know them.
Join phone banking, lit drops, other volunteer activities to Support Local Candidates.
Donate to Indivisible: We are all volunteers, but a few expenses do come up to keep an organization of this size doing what it does, and that is to defend democracy. For example, see the amount of signs above. All donations welcome.
