DISPATCH: The 20X20 for 2020 Club! Meetings, Kickoffs, and More!

Dear Democrats,

Senator Kamala Harris made us all proud on Wednesday during the Vice Presidential debate. Mike Pence thought he could lie–and mansplain–his way through through the night, and even though his lies came in complete sentences, they were the same falsehoods spewed by Donald Trump last week.

With less than a month to go, it’s full speed ahead until Election Day. As you’ll read in a special note from Kate below, she’s kicking off the 20×20 for 2020 club! To join, commit to just 20 minutes of calls every day during the final 20 days of the election. Read on for more information.

As always, send your events to events@massdems.org and have a safe and healthy weekend!

All the best,

Allison Mitchell
Communications Director
Massachusetts Democratic Party


A Note from Kate

Announcing the 20×20 for 2020 Club! The idea is simple, log in to the DemDialer for at least 20 minutes, for 20 days! You can connect with the dialer anytime from 10am to 11:30pm ET Monday through Saturday, noon to 11:30 pm on Sunday. Twenty minutes! I’ve been doing this for a while. Sometimes, I make my calls between 11:00pm and 11:30pm. Sometimes, I make them on my lunch hour. Like getting out the vote, you need to have a plan.

Do you need additional inspiration? Check out this video from my good friend Jimmy Tingle!

How to connect to the DemDialer. Here’s a simple link that will connect you to what you need: https://joebiden.com/call/

  1. At it’s simplest just connect to the ThruTalk dialer: http://2020victory.io/login
  2. I find it helps to look at the preview script – this will match whatever state or program the dialer is reaching: http://2020victory.io/previewscrip
  3. For an overview of the program, including how to join the CallCrew slack channel and general information use this link: https://joebiden.com/natcalls/

Do what works for you! It’s like exercise! Some people do best with a structured time where you gather with others. For some the twenty minutes a day is the best approach! You can do both!

Democratically yours,

Kate Donaghue
