Next week is when things get scary.

So far the oil industry has been pretty quiet on 1631, next week that changes when their ads go up on TV. We’re going to be outspent on television, by a lot.

Washingtonians want clean air and clean energy, but millions of dollars in oil money will make a difference and make this a very close election, that could be decided by as few as 20,000 votes.

You are our secret weapon. Real conversations have a much bigger impact than ads, and we’re the only ones who will actually go out there and have them.

If you haven’t signed up for a canvass yet, now is the time!

Volunteer Highlight of the week: Rachel Molloy

Rachel has been a leader in the Yes On 1631 campaign since day one. She was one of our top signature gatherers, a regional hub in East King County, and has dived right into leading canvasses and recruiting volunteers! Rachel is mom and concern for her kids future motivates her to be a true leader in the movement for climate justice!

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.

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 68 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!
