Any scrapbookers here?

I made a few scrapbooks, went overboard on buying materials, and now I'm trying to gear up to move across the country (aka getting rid of stuff so everything I have can fit in a car).

I have 2-3 paper boxes (standard sized xerox paper box from an office) full of scrapbooking supplies that I would like to sell on Craigslist. Would $75 be too much to ask for them (new they're worth over $500)

would index cards work as makeshift postcards?

I plan on asking my senators to fillibuster Gorsuch and I've been having problems getting through to their offices (I still try every day at all 3 offices) and am planning on sending mail.

Could I use a blank index card as a postcard or should I go buy postcards?

Help the Democrats maintain a trifecta

Delaware has a special election for state senate coming up, and a loss here could mean losing control of the Delaware state senate.


Sample legislative call script

These calls (if you can get through) take less than a minute.

My name is ____ and I live in town/zipcode and I'm calling to voice my support/opposition to XYZ issue

My name is ___ and I live in town/zipcode and I'm calling to urge the senator to vote against Cabinet Nominee

It is that simple. If you can't get through to DC, try a local office (or both). My senators have 2 local offices and DC. So that's a potential of 3 calls each per day.

Anyone else having trouble reaching their Senator?

I'm trying to get on Bob Menendez to oppose Jeff Sessions. I've called his local and DC offices and can't get through.

My other senator (Cory Booker) is vocally opposed to Sessions.

Iowa special election on Tuesday


First election since Orange Man took office. Let's help her get elected.

Has DU done this before

My time here isn't accurate as I used to post under a different SN (came back after a break) tabbycat31.

But I haven't seen this previously (or missed it). Since we need to build our bench, does DU ever highlight a candidate and do moneybombs (or remote phonebanking) for them?

We have two state legislatures up this year as well as two governor's mansions. Perhaps we should highlight some candidates that we should help.

What's next for the women's marches?

I attended one with half a million fellow sisters in NYC yesterday. As someone who's worked on campaigns before and organized events, I noticed a few things lacking.

1) No sort of sign-in sheets. These marches were a missed opportunity to stay in touch with future opportunities for activism and making your voices heard. Also a good way to generate leads for donors and volunteers.

2) No immediate action to take. No petitions, fundraising, etc.

3) VOTER REGISTRATION. While most people who are marching are probably already registered to vote, it would still be an opportunity to expand the electorate. I noticed many high school aged girls there who will possibly come of age before the next election. In addition, people move and need to update their registration.

4) No communications of what comes next. The work is far from over, people want to help, but what's next?
