ONLINE – Michigan Virtual Movie Night/Happy Hour/Letter Writing Party (Bi-Weekly on Thursdays)

April 30, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us at the new Socially Distanced Virtual Theater for bi-weekly virtual movie night, featuring Michigan documentaries and films set in Michigan!

Our first film is Flint: Poisoning of an American City (more at www.flintpoisoning.org, including how to stream the film at home).

Grab your favorite blue wave cocktail/mocktail, print 20 Vote Forward letters for Michigan, and join us for the film! We will chat/check-in, review how to write letters, and then tune-in for the film, and write letters.

Have a film to suggest? Please tell us more! www.tinyurl.com/michiganmovienight

We will be writing letters to potential Michigan voters in a critical election. This award-winning, proven tactic will help us work on crucial races all over the country. Invite your friends, too and let them know that Swing Left is pioneering an innovative program, using letters to help volunteers like us turn out Super State voters by mail with our letter-writing affiliate, Vote Forward.

Have not written Vote Forward letters before?

  1. Head over to www.votefwd.org/swingleft and make an account. Be sure to do this before the movie night, so Vote Forward has time to approve your account.
  2. Download and print 20 letters from MIGOTV2020A (https://votefwd.org/district/MIGOTV2020A). Don’t have a printer? Email lisa.swingleft@gmail.com
  3. We’ll show you how to write them at our virtual party! We’ll send you directions before the party on how to connect via Zoom (no worries, it’s super easy)

Join us for all or part of the film (no worries if you have to duck out early). The Socially Distanced Theater is *very* flexible.
Think about it: if you help get a voter to the polls in one of our targeted Super States, you can impact key State races necessary to roll back gerrymanders. That’s what Swing Left’s Super State Strategy is all about: maximizing the impact of your time and money.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
