It’s begun. The oil industry is up on TV with their deceptive ads. Luckily so are we! And thanks to you we’re also out in the streets educating thousands of voters across the state!

Lots of big stuff is happening this week, from new canvass training videos to our “Plan To Win” call to JANE FONDA launching a canvass on Tuesday!

During the last three weeks of the campaign she plans to volunteer full time and run a pop-up-office in Bellingham!

Canvass/Message Training Webinar 

Want to get a head start on the canvassing script? Want to know the tips and tricks on how to answer hard questions at the door? We’re holding two webinars a week for folks to learn how to talk about this campaign at the door and how to answer frequently asked questions. (Note: It is not required to attend one of these before attending a canvass, just some extra prep!)

You can join the training on Tuesday or Thursday from 7:00pm – 8:00pm: RSVP FOR A WEBINAR HERE

Join a Canvass!
We are off and running… well walking and knocking! To win in November we need to knock on over 200,000 doors across Washington state, and to do that we need YOU! You can sign up for one of the canvasses below or check the map for the full list.

Spread the word with VoterCircle
Volunteers have sent over 15,000 emails through VoterCircle. Have you joined them yet? Click here to start messaging your friends

If you missed it, VoterCircle is a rad new friend-to-friend outreach tool that lets you ID which of your friends are Washington Voters and quickly send them a message about the campaign.

Write a letter to the editor (LTE)
Thanks to everyone who submitted letters to the editor last week! Remember the best letters are personal stories that explain why you believe in 1631, as opposed to policy explanations. We’ve created an LTE guide with some great samples Check it out here

You can also run your LTE’s by jack@yeson1631.org if you want feedback.

With 61 days left until the election, talking to Washington Voters about I-1631 is one of the most important things you can do in America to address climate, jobs, and justice. Let’s win this thing!
