The coordinated campaign is seriously ramping up this week and is looking for volunteers to help make Community Check-In Calls for Senator Warner.
And more ways you can help and participate:
11:30-12:30 every Monday, grab a coffee or your lunch and drop by to meet and mingle with the VA Victory Field Team. You can drop in for just a few minutes or the entire hour. They will have updates from the Coordinated campaign, and they also will take questions. This will be an open conversation to share ideas and plans for the year.
Calling all Canvassers!
We have t-shirts, laptop stickers and bumper stickers. Proceeds go directly to supporting the C’ville Dems activities. T-shirts will be delivered by C’ville Dems to your home address if you live within Charlottesville or Albemarle. If you live outside the Charlottesville/Albemarle area, please consider adding a donation to cover shipping costs.
Bob Taibbi, one of our generous Silent Auction donors, has created a podcast to help us through this time. Living through a 100-year pandemic provides lots of good reasons to feel anxious and depressed. In this podcast we will look at how to cope with anxiety and depression in these anxious times.
