Abortion access is healthcare, and the fight for reproductive justice is part and parcel with the fight for healthcare justice. Mark your calendars for a weekend of action, October 7-9, led by the Women’s March, to rise against the threat of a nationwide abortion ban that Republican legislators have proposed.
Now is the time to take action, and to demonstrate to national and local leaders alike that we will not accept assaults on bodily autonomy. We will fight, and through solidarity, we will win.
Please join us tonight at 7:00 PM, with more information for new volunteers and seasoned signature gatherers to help push forward for universal healthcare at the ballot!
Total Signatures Collected: 62,038
Since last week, we added 2,000 signatures! Let’s build on that momentum and see how much more we can increase by next week. To help build the movement, consider getting friends and family to commit to 20 signatures by the end of the week. That’s just one petition sheet, which we can mail you directly. This can help us get the signatures we need in time, and grow the movement. Even a single petition sheet brings us closer to our goal and helps expand the movement for healthcare justice.
We’re all in this together!
Just Doing the Math
If everyone in our contact list collected just one petition sheet each, we will meet our goal of 400,000 signatures. As a movement, we rely on all of our collective hard work, but the more volunteers we have, the easier that work becomes. We can put healthcare on the ballot if all of us can make this commitment.
It really can be that easy.
2) get 20 signatures (a typical shift is just two hours), and
3) drop off the sheet at your nearest bin and upload the data.
Whole Washington is a grassroots organization, made up of volunteers putting in what they can. This week, we want to challenge you to help grow the movement, not just for I-1471, but for the healthcare justice movement locally and nationally. The bigger our movement, the stronger we are.
There are DOZENS of ways you can help Whole Washington grow. You can
1. Help collect signatures, by finding the nearest event to you.
2. Get others to join in signature gathering: If you can get five friends to commit to just one petition sheet each by the end of the week, you got us 100 signatures closer to our goal!
Remember, this movement is about US. The more people involved, in even the simplest ways, the stronger we’ll be.
A Brand New Option – Mail Me a Petition!
Effective immediately, we can send up to 10 petitions directly to you. This is a great way to contribute to the 400,000 signature goal! Ask your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Every signature gets us closer to our goal.
While we’ve made great progress, we still have a long way to go in a short amount of time.
If you’re unable to volunteer, would you consider making a
