Happy Thursday, Activists!
We hope you're having a good week so far. Today we have more links and a signup to learn more about taking action and how to get rid of the anti-democratic filibuster rule in the US Senate. Plus actions to help save the Democratic majority in the PA House.
RECORDINGS FROM LAST WEEK'S MEETINGS
Thank you for attending the fantastic PA Indivisible Statewide meeting with Ezra Levin last week! It was an energizing conversation to learn more about Indivisible's plans to win in 2024 - with more to come. And we asked a lot of questions and learned even more. If you couldn't make it, here is the link to the video. You can also attend this upcoming Indivisible national meeting for more updates from Indivisible.
And the other inspiring meeting last week was with Ezra interviewing Anand Giridharadas, author of The Persuaders. It was an enlightening discussion about talking to voters, taking action and finding ways to reduce our stress. Here is the link to that video.

SAVE THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY IN THE PA HOUSE
CANVASSING AND PHONE BANKING
Once again, the House Democratic majority hangs in the balance.
A super important special election in Bucks County is on February 13. Right now there is an even split in the PA House due to a resignation. This election is to fill the vacant seat, in the 140th district So it's imperative we win this race to protect our one-seat majority.
You can help! If you're in Bucks County or know a voter who is, check out these important dates for the Special Election and spread the word so voters can make their voices heard!
February 6: Last day to request a mail-in ballot
February 13, Election Day; and all mail ballots must be received by the Bucks County elections office by 8:00 pm
You can also canvass and/or phone bank to support the Democratic candidate, Jim Prokopiak. See the schedules below. Remember, these are all calls and door-knocks to friendly households. This is not a persuasion campaign, just an effort to remind folks that this Special Election is happening.
If you can't canvass or phone bank, you can always donate to his campaign. A little goes a long way in these races!
