7 weeks until the election – ways to get involved

With a little over 7 weeks to go until the election, here are some ways to get involved:

Week 7 – Attend the Monday Sept 17 Rutland County Democratic Meeting to hear from candidates and learn more about how you can lend a helping hand
Attend the Tuesday Sept 18 Castleton Indivisible Meeting to learn about grassroots activities in our community; attend their postcarding party on Friday Sept 21 for nationwide elections
Attend the Saturday Sept 22 Canvass at 10 am – meet at 67 Center Street, Rutland City
Attend the Saturday Sept 22 NAACP Rutland forum at 3 pm to meet @Christineforvt at the Rutland Free Library.
Start working on your favorite candidate’s campaign – put out a lawn sign, write a letter to the editor, and brag to your friends and families about your efforts. Go to ActBlue and contribute to one or more candidates. As little as $5 helps! https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/rutland

Week 6 – Join the Canvass at 1 pm at 11 Royce Street, Rutland City. Make sure everyone knows that early voting has started; encourage friends and family to vote and to vote early.

Week 5 – Go doorknocking with a candidate and learn more about your community in the process.

Week 4 – Attend the Wednesday Oct 10 Gubernatorial Debate at 6:30 pm at the Paramount Theater; and attend the Friday October 12 Castleton Indivisible postcarding party for nationwide elections.

Week 3 – Join a Get-out-the-vote canvas. Don’t know where one’s being held? Ask us.

Week 2 – Attend the Thursday October 25 Castleton Indivisible postcarding party for local elections; march with the Democrats in the Saturday October 27 Rutland City Halloween Parade.

Week 1 – Encourage friends and family to vote; volunteer to join a candidate at the polls on voting day (even a few minutes of standing on the line can make a world of difference to a tired candidate eager for a little company)

Hope to see you at one or more of these events over the next few weeks!

Profiting off jailed Vermonters

Amidst concerns over the mistreatment of Vermonters in a Pennsylvania private prison, the Department of Corrections has made the baffling decision to move Vermonters even further away, to Mississippi. https://vtdigger.org/2018/09/09/vermont-prisoners-moved-mississippi-prison-run-corecivic/ This decision comes on the heels of questions regarding Governor Scott receiving financial support from private prison lobbyists and plans to open a private prison in Vermont. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/OffMessage/archives/2018/01/26/scott-met-with-private-prison-lobbyists-prior-to-pitching-plan

What’s wrong with private prisons:

We encourage you to share your thoughts on the new plan to move Vermont prisoners to Mississippi.

Contact Governor Phil Scott: 802 828-3333 or http://governor.vermont.gov/contact-us/message

Contact Attorney General T.J. Donovan: 802 828-3171 or ago.civilrights@vermont.gov or Vermont Attorney General’s Office, 109 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05609-1001

Thank you!
