DISPATCH: Virtual Days of Action, Town Halls, & More!

Dear Democrats,

I’ve seen so many of you promoting your remote events over the past month. With just 11 days until Election Day candidates running for State Senate on the Cape and South Shore and western Massachusetts, I’m excited to let you know about an event coming up for Su Moran, the Democrat running in Plymouth and Barnstable.

On Monday, May 11th, Attorney General Maura Healey will be joining the #SuCrew for a Virtual Day of Action! With a long history of public service and doing the hard fork for her community, Su has what it takes to fight for her district on Beacon Hill and Maura agrees. Not to mention, Su’s up against the very same extremist, Trump loyalist that ran (and lost) for AG against Maura in 2018.

Maura’s kicking off a night of phone banking at 5 p.m. over Zoom, you can register for the call here. I know you’ll want to tell your friends about their chance to be on a Zoom call with Maura on Monday, so the campaign has created a #SuCrew Toolkit, complete with bios, graphics, social media and texting templates, and even a Phone Banking 101, which you can view here. Over the weekend, see if you can recruit 3 friends to help make calls for Su on Monday! You can also share the event on Facebook here. 

Remember to RSVP for the day of action here, the campaign will be in touch with next steps! As always, send your virtual events for the coming weeks to events@massdems.org and have a great weekend!

All the best,

Allison Mitchell
MassDems Communications Manager

 

Ideas for Committees

Want to help promote the #SuCrew Virtual Day of Action? Share the event on Facebook and use the Su Crew Toolkit to reach out to your network. The campaign has graphics, social media posts, emails, and texts ready to help you spread the word about this virtual event.

Also, there are only 11 days left until the 2nd Hampden & Hampshire and Plymouth & Barnstable head to the polls to elect new State Senators. Recruit 5 members of your committee to commit to a phone banking shift before Election Day on May 19th. Want to host a phone bank of your own? Contact MassDems Special Elections Coordinator Erin Buechele at erin@massdems.org.
