I am supporting Beau Biden based on a single factor—the Florida 2000/Ohio 2004 presidential elections, when we saw what a Republican Attorney General can do to the electoral process. His run for attorney general could be close. To help, contact Missy Owens at email@example.com.
State Volunteer Opportunities—Contact Kristin Dwyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out opportunities to help in the next two months. There will be phone-banking, literature drops, events (parades, tailgates, etc) where support is critical.
Contributions—It is no surprise that Republican candidates outspend their opponents. We can help turn this by talking with our wallets, an uncommon progressive activity. Find a candidate that you believe in, and donate your time, skills, and money. It will be greatly appreciated.
Candidate Forums—My faith community (www.uufn.org) is sponsoring two candidate forums next month. On Tuesday 10/11 from 7-9pm, candidates for state Attorney General, Auditor, and Treasurer will participate in a forum. On Wednesday 10/24 from 7-9pm, candidates for State Representative (from the 23rd and 25th representative districts), for US House of Representatives, and US Senate will participate in our second forum. Please plan to attend and spread the word (see attached flyer).
Climate Change—Next Wednesday, 9/13, from 3-5pm Dr. Stephen Gardiner is giving a (free and open to the public) seminar at the UD Trabant Center room 010 titled A perfect moral storm: climate change, intergenerational ethics, and the problem of moral corruption. To find out more, go to www.dbi.udel.edu/ethics.html
Films—The 2nd annual Newark Film Festival is later this week. Go to www.newarkfilm.com for more information. My faith community (www.uufn.org) is also running a film series. I’ve attached a tentative schedule.
