In case you missed it, here’s what was on the blog this week.
- Tuesday, October 2: Matt Damon’s Brett Kavanaugh impersonation livened up my post about buses to Washington, D.C.
- Wednesday, October 3: ‘Tis the month to buy new skull jewelry.
- Friday, October 5: I went to Washington to support sexual-assault survivors who addressed marchers on the steps of the Supreme Court and met with the staff of Senators Flake, Collins, and Murkowski. The confirmation of Beer-Krazed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court doesn’t take anything away from the bravery of these people!
I know a lot of us are disappointed now, but we must not despair. U.S. citizens have faced worse than this. If you don’t remember what civil-rights activists went through, it’s a good time to do some reading and get inspired.
Keeping busy is also a good way to lift your spirits. As always, I have suggestions
- The New York Times wants to hear how you feel, wimmins! The form is easy to fill out, so why not vent a little?
- There are so many good Democratic candidates in tight races that it’s tough to choose where to donate. Now you don’t have to make a choice! #GrabYourBallot allows you to donate to 31 candidates at once. I recommend doing this instead of the fundraiser for an unnamed Susan Collins challenger in Maine, because Collins isn’t up for re-election until 2020.
- Help get the vote out by participating in Postcards to Voters. You can start with as few as five cards.
- Join your local Indivisible chapter to get in on some canvassing and phonebanking opportunities. You can also check out Swing Left, Sister District, and Flippable for important red-to-blue races.
