Stand up and fight!

Things WE can do to WIN.

Donating to DNC is always effective, but there's always more to do. Here is a list of what I've found. Adding to it as I find actionable items.

VERY VERY LATEST!
Dems launch plan to elect thousands of local election supervisors
Protect Elections from thuggery.

Politico article: https://www.politico.com/news/2022/04/18/democrats-recruiting-push-local-election-officers-00025733
A Democratic candidate recruiting group is pitching donors on an ambitious three-year program to find, train and support 5,000 candidates for local offices in charge of election administration, a sprawling national effort intended to fight subversion of future election results.

The program would recruit candidates in 35 states for everything from county probate judges in Alabama to county clerks in Kansas and county election board members in Pennsylvania — all offices that handle elections and will be on voters’ ballots between now and 2024.

FIGHT FOR VOTING RIGHTS
After a year of assaults on American voting rights, the next steps are clear: end the filibuster and enact federal voting rights legislation that protects voters, no matter what state they live in.

Want to end the filibuster? Then help this fantastic Senate candidate beat the GOP
Progressives have two goals when it comes to the Senate this year: preserving our current majority, and making sure our next majority supports reforming the filibuster. Fortunately, this year’s race in North Carolina gives us the chance to do both, which is why Daily Kos is proud to endorse former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley in her bid to flip this open seat from the GOP.

How to win in every corner of the country.

So we came up with a three-pronged strategy:

1) All Politics Are Local: ... it requires local control and a local touch on messaging and campaign infrastructure to truly be successful.

2) Training: We wanted to find grassroots activists and volunteers, to give them as much knowledge and experience as we could.

3) Unconventional campaigning: We knew we couldn’t win a toe-to-toe fight, so we had to take every weakness and make it a strength.

6. Thanks, I am "seeking publicity" for the right reasons.

I am relatively new to DU. I am still learning about the groups etc.

I am open to suggestions regarding this thread and my post on humanitarian aid for Ukraine.
https://democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=16468885

I suppose I should repost that as a new thread.

Thanks to all who comment, or just read these posts, and for your suggestions.

Do I cross-post by just copying the content and creating a new thread/post?

FOR DUTY AND HUMANITY!

7. I love your suggestions

I have run for office in my very-red, Cowboys for Trump Couy Griffin, phony audit as seen on Rachel Maddow county and had great DU support.
Since I couldn’t run this year, I recruited 5 Democrats to run. Two for County Commissioner, one State Rep and two Magistrate Judges.
On average, it takes 7 ‘asks’ before someone considers running. Be the one to ask.

15. When I contribute to a Democratic organization I get flooded with emails

I'm sure this happens on the repuglicon side also.

However I don't need every candidate in the US to buy my name and think I'm a potential donor. In fact it sours me a bit on donating at all.

Of course this can also be a dirty trick played by the other side to discourage participation.

16. People have commented on this.

I actually get few, and I have contributed to several causes.
I uncheck the "send me stuff" on ActBlue, but I guess it varies.
DNC used to flood me and I checked the "unsubscribe" button on the emails.
I have a bunch of snail mail here for the primary.
You might post separately asking for help with this.
I am sure you're not alone.

There are ways to set up "alias" mailboxes. Several independent companies, and now, Apple, I think.
I have not looked into this. That way, you give a certain email address that forwards to your main inbox, and then shut down the forwarding. Repeat for others.

If others don't come up with answers, I can look into it. Happens to everyone in varying degrees.
