This Election Edition Newsletter is meant to update you on all OWR’s election efforts and give you more information about Election Day! With 4 days left until the election, this is not a time sit back. Democracy is not a spectator sport. We must continue to text, canvass, call and reach out to our friends and loved ones.
“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” – Desmond Tutu
“Linda Kessel [of Indivisible Madison] and I have been leading two-hour postcard writing sessions up to three times a week and we’re are regularly drawing between 10-25 people every meeting. As the election draws closer, we are getting more and more volunteers. People love the camaraderie of writing postcards in a relaxed setting with friends. Last Sunday, our regular coffee shop meeting place had a private event that we hadn’t known about, so we filled up the bar next door, taking up every booth and the whole bar! I wish I had taken a pic of the woman writing postcards with a martini in front of her! We have now written about 3,434 postcards for Kriss Marion, Lori Hawkins, Brittany Keyes and Ann Groves Lloyd. 15 people turned out for the Wil-Mar postcard writing event last Saturday and wrote 197 cards. Who honestly knows whether this is an effective tactic? What I CAN attest to is the real joy people feel at working together on a collective project that is based on one-to-one personal written communication and the hope it gives them (us).”– Laura Gottlieb, Postcard Extraordinaire, OWR- Dane County
