Are you worried about the safety of voting during a pandemic --for yourself, your family, and for your community? Does the president’s ongoing effort to undermine faith in the election’s outcome by disparaging “mail-in voting” and holding back needed funding for the United States Postal Service make you nervous?
Well, join the club -- you’re not the only one. That is why we have organized a DIY webcast on Mobilizing, Mailing, and Defending our Votes in 2020 -- with experts across the country who are already working overtime to uplift, defend, and make our democracy work.

Our guests will discuss context but their focus will be on specific tactics and web based tools you can use to help people vote. They will even show us how to use some of them via screen share. We will also have a practical update on United States Postal Service readiness and what needs to be done about it immediately. Finally, we’ll give you specific information on red flag issues in key states.
