Janice Brown

He has nominated climate denier to the Supreme Court.
Mark Schaeffer
45:37
I strongly urge early voting in person rather than by mail in states that allow it. In person early votes are counted on election night, mail votes take a week or more to be counted. Greatest risk is if Trump is leading on election night, he will declare victory, say mail votes are a hoax, and tell his cult to shut down vote counting.
Deborah R (she/her)
46:36
Hi Catherine— saw your question in the Q&A about whether the Protect the Vote actions will be in person. Yes; that’s the intent (as well as remote actions too)
Mark Schaeffer
48:00
IMHO we will need thousands of people in the streets 24/7 in every city to defend count of mail votes from trump mobs.
Deborah R (she/her)
49:42
If people can write their questions in the chat
Deborah R (she/her)
49:49
We’ll gather them together and answer
Deborah R (she/her)

How do we help young people not to turn to violence following the election
Michael Eisenscher
51:29
If you want to volunteer but there is no 350 operation in your area, contact your local AFL-CIO Labor Council about volunteering with them.
Dave Shukla
51:38
It would be better to not go through a general strike, but that is a tool in the non-violent resistance toolbox
Thanu Yakupitiyage
51:41
if you live in a blue state, you can still join 350 Action’s GOTV phonebanks to call into battleground states!

I actually live near a major city in Florida, so I'm assuming there probably is a group in my area. I'm just not sure how to find them.

Could you talk more about these medium-sized actions?
Mark Schaeffer
52:50
Biden campaign is not canvassing door to door. Some think that is too cautious, some voters are willing to open doors and converse. Some orgs may be canvassing in person, wearing masks, independent of official campaign.
Gary Piazzon
52:59
Is 350 collaborating with others and who are they?
Thanu Yakupitiyage
53:16
We are collaborating with Protect the Results and the Fight Back Table
Karen Austin
54:07
Will you also cover potential responses in the possibility of State Legislators asking their electors to vote for Trump, which could give Trump more votes because more States are dominated by Republican legislators.
Bruce Todd
54:34
oops, meant lt. col. Lawrence Wilkerson?

To Laura B: some activists not in battleground states are doing phone banking and/or handwritten postcards to intermittent D voters in battleground states.
Deborah R (she/her)
01:01:17
@Laura— if you don’t live in a battleground state, hosting Protect the Vote actions will be key to amplify the call for all votes to be counted in contested states!
Deborah R (she/her)
01:02:00
If people had questions that you posted in the chat that weren’t answered, please add them in the Q&A to make sure we see them. Thank you!!

We are tracking the Supreme Court nominee and conversations around that. We are aware of her climate denial. And we are using our platforms to educate the public.
Mark Schaeffer
01:10:22
Someone asked about legal teams. Biden/Harris campign as well as independent organizations are organizing legal teams to protect the vote on Election Day.
Dave Shukla
01:10:35
FYI: As someone who has been a Legal Observer at more than one protest locally since the murder of George Floyd, know that 'loot' and 'thug' are themselves words stolen from other cultures, to describe colonialism; apart from that, know that much of the violence narrative is patently disprovable on its own terms, i.e. slow violence of the poor, etc.
