Exit your Comfort Zone…for Democracy

We all need to do more than we’re comfortable with, right now, to protect our democracy.  It’s that simple, right?

In this video, I explain how my road trips project is moving me outside my comfort zone in the hopes that you will move outside your comfort zone to take action (canvass, phone bank, donate, etc.) during the midterms.

Create a Vision Board with your Group

How do we help all members to feel engaged?
How do we maintain group cohesion when members differ?
How do we stay focused on our goal when we are demoralized?
How do we connect with one another in a fun yet meaningful way?

Vision boarding is a great solution to all these challenges.
It helps us engage with politics and with each other in a new and creative way.

In the video below, arts facilitator Valentina Gonzalez (artclassestoyou AT gmail DOT com) explains how:

What Does Conor Lamb’s Win Mean for the Red State Resistance?

Earlier this week, Conor Lamb won his Pennsylvania special election race by 627 votes.  This is an incredibly small margin in any race, but particularly in a race where over 200,000 were cast.  It’s also impressive because President Trump won the district by 19.6% a just over a year ago.

What are the lessons of this dramatic win for activists in red states and districts?  The video below presents data from the Partisan Voter Index which allows comparison between districts on how likely voters are to elect a Democrat or Republican. Lamb’s district, the Pennsylvania 18th, is an R +11, a seemingly safe Republican seat.  (The maximum Republican score is a R+33.)

Based on this data, there are 119 Congressional seats currently held by Republicans are an R+11 or less.  These are the new battleground districts of 2018.
