Please mark your calendars for October 7-9, for a national weekend of action for abortion rights, led by the Women’s March.
Vancouver: October 8, 12:00 PM, Esther Short Park
Spokane: October 8, 2:00 PM, Riverfront Park
Whole Washington will be there to collect signatures and show solidarity as we head into the midterms. 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: 64,053
Once you collect signatures, what happens next? It’s important to make sure we get the data and the sheets as quickly as possible!
1) Upload the data, along with any new contacts for volunteers. This helps our movement grow! We also have volunteers who can upload the data for you.
2) Make sure you get filled petition sheets to the nearest bin! We’ll need them all collected in just a few months.
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.
Please join us Sunday, October 9, at 5:30, for a fundraiser screening of Sick Around the World. The film follows T.R. Reid across five industrialized democracies, investigating how they managed to provide healthcare for everyone, while spending half as much as the US.
Suggested donations are $14.71.
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.
We’re getting down to the wire! We know October is a busy month for political activity, as we head toward the Midterms. If you can volunteer to collect 20 signatures on top of another campaign or at another rally, you can help us put universal healthcare on the ballot!
If you’re unable to volunteer, would you consider making a
