    Dialing for Dems - NSW Virtual Phonebanking Session

    Join us for a virtual phone-banking session on Tuesday, May 31!
     
    With the likely overturn of Roe v. Wade, ongoing primaries, and now the Australian election behind us, many of us are keen to channel our energies into getting out the vote this November.
     
    We'll kick off at 6:30p on Zoom for a training/refresher for anyone who hasn't done DA phone-banking before, then hop off to make calls for a while - before coming back to chat about the experience. It's our hope that this makes the process a bit less intimidating for newbies - and a bit more fun for all of us.
     
    Zoom details below - and hope to see you online!

    RTF Monthly Meeting - May 2022

    The Democrats Abroad Reparations Task Force is dedicated to tackling economic, racial, and political injustice head on. Join us as we fight to keep the Biden Administration accountable to its own promises to address racial disparities. This is important because H.R. 40 (the Reparations Study Bill) runs a risk of running out of time for a vote. We will not let that happen, for the stakes are too high.
    On May 31st at 18:30 Central European Time / 12:30 p.m. Eastern US Time, we will be discussing recent developments in the US reparations movement, on-going successes in reparations activism/advocacy, and further opportunities to get involved as we march towards Juneteenth.
    Before the meeting, please make sure to check out two curated pieces from RTF Educational Organizer Daniel Stein:

    Phonebanking Training - June 1

    Phonebanking is one of the most effective ways that we use to reach out to voters to make sure that they are registered to vote and have requested their ballots. We have to do all that we can to make sure that WE WIN in November! To help us get out the vote, we are calling members in Germany to remind them to request their ballots for November. For this important endeavor, we need YOUR help.

    If you have never participating in phonebanking, then join our Phonebanking Coordinator for this training session. 

    Learn or review the why, how, where and when of phonebanking. We'll explain the sign-up system, explore CallHub and do a few demo calls.
