MJ for Texas

One of the 2 best campaign videos of the year – maybe any year – highlights MJ Hegar. She’s the Democratic candidate in Texas’s District 31.

Visit her site, watch the video if you haven’t, volunteer if you’re in or near her district, toss in a few bucks for the campaign.


Help Out OR State Representative Janelle Bynum

Because this:
A Black Oregon Lawmaker Was Knocking on Doors. Someone Called the Police.

And Bynum, from District 51 and the only African American in the OR House of Representatives, handled the matter perfectly.

Here’s her website. If you’re in OR, volunteer to make calls,

And you can donate.

And if this to-do doesn’t float your boat, do one of the standbys:

  • Make sure people you know are registered to vote.
  • Take a look at Swing Left’s website.
  • See if there is an Indivisible branch in your area. They’ll find someone who can use your help. If there isn’t a local branch, join the national branch.
  • Join Moms Demand Action
  • Donate to the ACLU
  • Donate to Planned Parenthood

March. Chant. Knock on Doors. #Vote

Support Ady Barkan’s Be a Hero Tour

Ady Barkan continues to be a hero, helping all Americans have health care. He fought hard when the GOP attempted to gut Obamacare, and he continues to fight, because the GOP keeps chipping away at the ACA.

This summer he’s touring the country in a wheelchair-accessible van and holding events. What he wants more than anything is to get more people to vote in November.

You can see the schedule on Facebook. If there’s an event near you, sign up:

And you can support him via his website:

March. Email. Call. Donate. Vote!

Do One Thing is reconfiguring to better focus on the Midterms — with occasional calls to action for good causes.

We’re going to focus on races that will either keep seats blue that might be in jeopardy, or switchable seats from red to blue.

Yes – other sites and organizations are doing the same, thank goodness.

Here we’re focusing on one small thing you can do each day to help.
