With the new reality of Covid19, our first priority at the Westside Democratic HQ is to keep all of us safe and healthy. We have suspended all in-person events, such as phone banks, trainings, fundraisers, and meetings. We'll continue to follow the guidelines laid out by Governor Newsom, the L.A. County Public Health Department, and the CDC.
But, our work goes on! To protect our democracy, our planet, and our public health, we need a Democratic House, Senate, and President! Few things have made Trump and McConnell's incompetence more clear than their mishandling of this crisis.
All of our phonebanks have gone virtual. We start each session with a brief Zoom conference to talk about who we're calling and catch up with each other, and if people want, we do a little happy hour at the end to talk about our calls and enjoy some much-needed camaraderie. If you’re home and wanting a break from the news or family life or whatever else is going on for you — WE NEED YOU!
And we have nearly daily opportunities to participate.

Help us elect Democrats across the country! Right now, we’re calling into Arizona to increase voter turnout by encouraging Democratic voters to sign up to vote by mail. When people get mail-in ballots, they vote. Even more important now! If we can increase Democratic voter turnout while keeping voters safe, we’ll win. And we're also calling AZ to help elect Mark Kelly and flip the Senate!
We'll have calls into North Carolina for Cal Cunningham and calls for Joe Biden available very soon — watch this space!
To keep our activism social, we'll have a Zoom call check in at the beginning, and a virtual happy hour at the end of each shift! And, postcard writers and texters, join us for the social time! Contact us for addresses, and postcards and stamps if you need them.
For calling, you'll need a phone plus a laptop, tablet or desktop computer.
