Volunteers from Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence joined Moms Demand Action's first 'Winning Wednesday' statewide phone bank to talk to voters about two great western PA candidates - Lissa Geiger Shulman and Emily Skopov. Together we made over 600 calls, had some good conversations, helped a few voters through the online mail in ballot application process and did our part to help elect gun safety advocates. We have another phone bank scheduled with Emily Skopov for this Sunday (September 13) and we have (so far) committed to 600 postcards for Lissa Geiger Shulman. You can sign up to help here.

Fourteen volunteers from Squirrel Hill Stands and Moms Demand Action spent a couple of hours making calls for Lissa Geiger Shulman, running for state representative in PA House District 30. We made 639 calls, having conversations with 59 voters (not a lot of people home today) and leaving messages with the rest. While phone banking can be slow some days (we made a lot more contact last weekend), it's the best way we have right now to reach voters. And every conversation brings us a step closer to winning a gun safety majority in the legislature.


You can find lots more phone banking opportunities on our event page. Plus ongoing postcarding events.

Members of Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence and Congregation Dor Hadash, our event partner, wrote 270 postcards to low propensity voters of color in Texas. Twenty of us followed the lead of the Center for Common Ground, a POC led voter engagement organization in sending information about early voting to voters often ignored by other organizations. Partner organizations include the NAACP, Black Voters Matter, Mi Familia Vota, and the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism.


We hope to continue to work with Reclaim Our Vote. Future events will be posted on our events page and will likely involve phone banking to voters in southern swing states.
