Dear Jeanne,

Lots of you joined in for our May All-In call last Wednesday, when we got to hear from Jacqui Patterson about being unbought and unbossed, and the legacy of Rep. Shirley Chisholm.

We also heard from Bill McKibben about the new numbers that push big banks squarely to the center of the climate fight (the cliff notes are here). And we got to meet two Third Actors, Lenore Kenny and Peter Whitehouse, who are helping to get Third Act Educators off the ground.

Today, many of us are looking ahead toward June. If you’re wondering what you can do this month to join other Third Actors in safeguarding our democracy and protecting our climate, we’ve got a list of ideas ready.

Senior-to-Senior Voter Registration Activities

About 4 million young people turn 18 every year in the US and become eligible to vote. However, in many school districts less than 20% of youth who will turn 18 by the 2022 midterms were registered to vote, despite being eligible.

Send a card & invitation to register

Celebrate the major life milestone of a grandchild, relative, godchild or other special graduate in your life by sending them a graduation card with this print-at-home insert that includes a QR Code for registering to vote online (38 states allow online registration). There is space to write your own personal well-wishes and to share why voting is so important to you. Click here for instructions and link to the printable card insert.

Record your invitation on Tribute

This graduation season, Third Act wants to share your invaluable voting experiences with the next generation of voters! Using the Tribute video platform, you can take a video—of yourself, or with a graduating high school senior, or a teacher in your life. Let’s inspire and support young people to participate in The Civic Center’s “Class of 2022 Ready to Vote Challenge.” Click here for detailed instructions.

*Last Call*

Recruit the high school students & teachers in your lives for a workshop on June 2nd—this Thursday—about organizing in-school voter registration events over  the remaining weeks of their school year. Click here for details.

Send Postcards to Voters in AZ and WI

Let’s join together as Third Act’s Democracy Force to write postcards and mobilize voters in Wisconsin & Arizona to register for a mail-in ballot to increase the likelihood that they vote in upcoming elections this year. This page has all the info you’ll need to get started.

Banking on our Future Pledge: Let’s Triple our Signers

We need a massive number of people committed to moving their credit cards and accounts away from the dirtiest banks in order to start making an impact. So this month, we’re focused on pledge tripling.

We’re asking all Third Actors to sign the pledge and then get three more signers on board. The official toolkit with sample emails and letters to send, conversation guides, printable flyers, explainer videos, and more can be found at this link.

And if you’re ready for an in-person action, join Third Actors across the country who are scheduling meetings with their local Big Bank branch manager to explain our pledge and request they pass a formal letter of complaint to their supervisors. Watch this training to get inspired and learn how.

P.S. If you want a smile: Watch our two minute ‘Good Trouble‘ video that features Third Actors at work. And don’t forget to check out the great work of Jacqui Patterson’s The Chisholm Legacy Project this month!
