Yesterday we asked this community for an emergency $10,000 to expand our GOTV (get out the vote) texting program into 23 additional competitive districts.
You helped us raise $27,954 overnight! We’ve already texted over 165,000 voters in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Now we will be able to make an even bigger impact before the polls close. From the entire Bend the Arc team — thank you.
Thank you also for voting today. To bring you a smile on this anxious day, here are some of the inspiring faces from this movement, who have been interrupting Trump with us since May:
For many of us in the Jewish community, voting today has taken on a new significance after the devastating violence in Pittsburgh. At the same time, we know this attack is only the latest in a long line of violence committed in the name of white supremacy. Our grief binds us to so many others in a movement to defeat white nationalism.
Thank you for showing up with resilience and strength, and recognizing the urgency of this moment. We have seen you all channel rage, despair, and sorrow into incredible action. Our love is stronger than their hate, and we will outlive them.
Thank you, again, for voting today. Thank you for helping your friends and family vote.
No matter what the results are, we are with you and we are more organized and more powerful than ever before. If you’d like to join us for an election debrief, we have a Facebook Live scheduled for Thursday. You can RSVP here.
In solidarity and with hope,
The Bend the Arc team
