This OTYCD post originally ran on July 28, 2018. We’re reposting it today, tomorrow, and November 5 as a reminder to get out there and do the work of supporting #TheLastWeekend however you can.
Get your calendar NOW RIGHT NOW and block off Saturday, November 3 through Tuesday, November 6 to support The Last Weekend, a coordinated push to defend and save our democracy.
Sounds a bit histrionic, we admit, but with the fallout from the July 16, 2018 Helsinki conference and the continued failure of the GOP-controlled Congress to do anything substantial about it, it’s clear that democracy in America is under threat.
You need to wipe your calendar in the days leading up to the midterms and devote yourself to The Last Weekend.
It’s an effort backed by every org you like — Swing Left, Flippable, Sister District, Moveon, Indivisible, Resistbot, Wall-of-Us, you name it.
Its goal is to encourage everyone to talk to fellow potential voters. From the homepage:
Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day (Saturday, November 3rd–Tuesday, November 6th).
You’ve done a lot. You’re doing a lot. Can you rearrange your life to do this in early November? Please?
