Donate to Hurrican Irma Relief

Hurricane Irma has obliterated the infrastructure of several island nations throughout the Caribbean. We have yet to fully calculate the damage it has done to Florida.

Below we’ve provided a list of organizations providing help both in the US and throughout the Caribbean:

Action: Ask Sen. Cantwell to Cosponsor Vote-by-Mail Bill, Thank Sen. Murray

Sen. Wyden of OR recently introduced the Vote-by-Mail Bill to the Senate, which would fight the rising tide of voter suppression by making it easier for everyone to vote! We enjoy the privilege of voting by mail in our state, so we should be the most vocal supporters of this bill. Sen. Murray is a cosponsor already, but Sen. Cantwell is lagging behind. Call Sen. Murray to thank her, and call Sen. Cantwell to tell her to cosponsor!

Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621 or (206) 553-5545

Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 or (206) 220-6400

Script for Murray:

“My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [Zip]. I wanted to thank you for cosponsoring the Vote-by-Mail Bill – passing this bill would be a great blow to voter suppression. I am grateful to have a Senator who fights so consistently for what is right.”

Script for Cantwell:

“My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ZIP]. Sen. Wyden of Oregon recently proposed S. 1231, a bill that would bring voting by mail to the rest of the country. We benefit from voting by mail in WA, and as such we should be the most vocal supporters of this common sense measure to make voting easier and thereby fight voter suppression. As such I would like to see Sen. Cantwell cosponsor this bill.”
