Action: Sign up to Register Voters With Us or at Home

Let's not kid ourselves - as the incumbent during a relatively good economic period (inequality and cost of living notwithstanding), Trump is a favorite to win reelection next year. He has about a year's head start to campaign and raise money - and he just raised $25 million in one day after announcing his reelection this week.

But we are not waiting for 2020 either. Seattle Indivisible will be hosting its third Pizza & Prose Letter Writing Party to register voters this summer! We will use proven methods to help register new voters in 2020 Swing States, with the help of SwingLeft, a grassroots organization like Indivisible that fights in races around the country. Join us on August 6, 2019 at 7:00pm at the Washington State Labor Council by RSVPing here:

Can't make the event? You can sign up to write five letters from home by registering at the following link:
