TEXT DEM IN! Virtual Text-a-Thon –with VIPs & DJs
August 22, 2020 @ 2:45 pm - 6:00 pm
Together, we will invite ONE MILLION voters to join us in saving democracy!
And while we do it we will have music with professional DJs – Sammybananas, Clublonely, and Darlingchuck!
And the party will be really rocking now, with an expanded list of special luminaries. How does partying with former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick sound? And what about hearing from Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley? Feel like listening to the talented and tuneful Ambassador of Soul, Ellis Hall – a singer/songwriter; former lead singer for soul/funk band “Tower of Power”, “California Raisins” and the declared protege of the legendary Ray Charles? These two guests are joining previously announced guests: David Byrne – founding member of the Talking Heads and current Broadway sensation for his acclaimed, “American Utopia”; Congresswoman Katherine Clark; Frances Moore Lappe – author of “Diet for a Small Planet,” which started a revolution in how Americans eat; Heather McGhee – NBC commentator; America comic Jimmy Tingle. Plus…inspiring words by Massachusetts’ own Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Texting is one of the most effective ways to reach the voters we need to help us save our democracy. Our goal for the Together for 2020 Text-a-Thon on Saturday August 22 is to reach 1 million voters in battleground states in three fun-filled hours.
To join the party, you will need to know how to join and use Resistance Labs’ version of the texting platform – SPOKE.
