With the stakes being as high as they are, voter suppression already more rampant than ever, and the nationalist right emboldened by conspiracy theorists and the President himself, we are depending on you else to ensure people are able to vote freely and safely.
How can you help? By becoming an Election Defender. Sign up to be an Election Defender here.
Unlike traditional poll watchers, Election Defenders will be working to provide safe supports for voting (such as PPE and water), election & voter defense, de-escalating right-wing intimidation tactics, and signalling to a network of groups and lawyers if and where trouble breaks out.
We need you on election day! Sign up here.
Veterans For Peace is part of a united front effort with hundreds of other mass-member organizations to ensure free and fair elections. Protecting the rights of people to vote in-person on November 3rd means thousands of people signing up for different roles. Signing up today means you’ll have access to weekly training and a slack channel where our efforts can be coordinated around the nation.
