2. Promote and Protect the Vote in 2022
This National Action comes from NCJW Inc.
There are many ways to take action with NCJW to register, educate, and mobilize voters in advance of the midterms this November. Here are three ways you can act today:
- Make sure your voter registration is up to date. Have you moved in the last year? Have you changed your name? Use NCJW's voter registration portal to ensure you can vote in November. Or go further and help register people in your family and network.
- Host a letter-writing party or sign up individually to mobilize people to vote. Personal letters have been proven to boost voter turnout! In partnership with Vote Forward, NCJW makes Get Out the Vote (GOTV) efforts as easy as picking a pen.
- Volunteer as a poll worker. Sign up with Power the Polls to volunteer as a poll worker and positively impact democracy in your community.
Reproductive Freedom Is on the Ballot This November
Phone banks are a great way to Get Out of The Vote (GOTV) and advance abortion access. Commit to joining at least one phone bank this fall on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the Election! Join us in defeating a harmful anti-abortion ballot initiative in Kentucky and passing a pro-abortion ballot initiative in Michigan.
- Tuesdays: October 25 and November 1, 5:45-8:30 pm ET
- Wednesdays: October 26 and November 2, 4:45-6 pm ET
3. Legislative Briefing on the Voter Participation Gap & Voter Ed Solutions
This National Action comes from the League of Women Voters of California.
California has a problem. Even though we are a state where underrepresented groups are a majority, we have recently passed laws designed to remove impediments and promote access to voting. There are significant disparities in participation among youth and voters of color compared to our older, non-Hispanic white population.
Defunct state and federal laws residually impact today's reality, where a predominantly older, white, and profoundly unrepresentative electorate makes decisions about critical issues of local and statewide importance.
League of Women Voters of California invites you to join the coalition of voting rights groups that worked on last year's Voter Education and Outreach Budget Ask, on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm Pacific Time

4. Tell your Member of Congress to Protect DACA Recipients
This National Action comes from MomsRising.org.
While the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decision is a temporary reprieve, the DACA program is in grave peril.
Congress must take immediate action to create permanent protections for the hundreds of thousands of people who were brought to this country as children, making it the only place they have ever called home.
Tell your member of Congress they must act before the end of 2022 to put permanent protections into place for DACA recipients!
5. Add Your Name: Our Kids Deserve Better
This National Action comes from everytown.org.
Youth sports are meant to help children grow, develop, and have fun—not be traumatized by the gun lobby's "guns everywhere" agenda.
Unfortunately, gun violence is on the rise at school sporting events. And we know why this is happening: Research shows that states with weaker gun laws, like those without gun permits, have higher rates of gun violence. And even though shootings at school sports events have happened across the country, they are most tightly clustered in states with fewer gun restrictions.
It's time for lawmakers to prioritize public safety to end this crisis.
