We Need Volunteers

There are many volunteer opportunities coming up! Most importantly, we need poll watchers on election day. Poll watching is crucial for this time around, as Trump has encouraged poll watching by his supporters. We would like to ensure Democratic voters are not harassed or intimidated at the polls.
