2018 Mid-Terms: Top Election of Our Lifetimes?

Thursday, 6 Sept, 7PM

5019 Keystone Place N (downstairs at Keystone Church)

Do we need a "blue wave" in the November mid-term elections?  Is it important to flip the 8th, the 5th and the 3rd congressional districts in Washington to the Democrats?  What are the implications for our national politics? 

How can you get involved?  What can you do to assist this "blue wave"?  How important is it to GOTV (Get Out The Vote)?  What groups can I get involved to promote these elections? 

A panel of Seattle activists (including former Seattle City-Council member Jim Street and several involved with David Domke's Common Purpose), who have been involved in GOTV efforts, will speak about their experiences and answer questions. 

Doors open at 6:30; we hope you will come early to meet, share stories, network, and discuss ways to join in support of WPSR and the Poor People's Campaign!
