Postcard writing at the Midlands on Wednesday: help write to voters in swing districts

A couple weeks ago I wrote about an event at Midlands, 3333 Georgia Avenue NW, where you could write postcards to encourage Democrats to vote in a tight special Congressional election in Ohio. The organizers are planning to do them every two weeks going forward, and they've scheduled their second one to be held this Wednesday, July 18 from 6-9:30p. And from 6 to 7 pm it's buy one-get one free with some of the beers on draft!

I went last time and it was fun and pretty straightforward -- you get a list of addresses (which is public record) and a script and you write them up. 

In case you need a reminder, Congressional elections are important for the country of course, but also to DC, as Congress controls DC's budget and has the power to block things that local voters have supported -- in the past they've blocked medical marijuana, reproductive rights, and a lot more.

Here's more information. Bring your friends!
Dear Neighbor, 
We hope you can join us for our second ‘Vote Them Out’ postcard writing event at the Midlands on Wednesday, July 18 from 6-9:30pm.  In light of recent events, it is more urgent than ever that we work together to support Democratic candidates in the upcoming Midterm Elections.  This event is  organized by a small, concerned group of neighborhood friends. We know folks are looking for ways to get involved, and this is a great, low-commitment way of doing so. Did I mention there is BOGO free beer until 7pm? 
If you could please join the Facebook group here we would greatly appreciate it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/645304705822426/.  If you could also please RSVP on the events page so we can get a headcount for the Midlands that would be very helpful. Please feel free to add your friends into the group.   
We are working with an organization called "Postcard for Voters" to get the address.  Each night we will usually be supporting a different candidate, writing to known democratic supporters in their district, and asking them to remember to vote.  
We hope to see you at the next event!
