Mayday! Mayday! Democracy is at stake. 

On May 1st, Culver City Democratic Club members Patrick Meighan and Amy Thiel hosted the second of their monthly “Work > Worry Wednesday” postcarding nights! Club members Eric Paesel, Bronwyn Jamrok, Jared and Rebecca Morgan, Leah Pressman, Donna Kent, Disa Lindgren, and Kenny Stevenson were among the 39 people (along with a couple of young helpers) who put down their cell phones for a couple of hours and got busy doing the work of saving the future of this “America.” 

Patrick and Amy treated us all to Tito’s Tacos and Suzie Cakes cupcakes and, oh yeah, we reached out to voters all over the country in an effort to save  America from ending.  Which is a nice side benefit, for those of us who care about America.

This was the second of a series of gatherings that will take place every first Wednesday of the month until November.

By the end of the night, their guests had written about 400 postcards to Arizona voters for Ruben Gallego, the Democrat running for Senate against Republican Kari Lake.  They also hand wrote about 250 Vote Forward letters to Democratic-leaning independent low-propensity voters in Wisconsin, North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.  Those letters will be stockpiled until mid-October, when they’ll be sent out in a big ol’ mail bomb.  The postcards go out right away.

Six hundred and fifty direct, handwritten, personalized voter outreach contacts is not too shabby, for one night’s work!

You are all invited to join us!

The next Work > Worry Event will be on June 5th 5pm-7pm and every first Wednesday of the month until the election! RSVP to patsweetpat@gmail.com for the address!
