Blue Wave Election Task Force - Chair: Anne Cauman (email@example.com)
The Task Force focuses on election work which either turns states blue or helps keep them blue. In 2024 we will be concentrating on Swing states with a particular emphasis on Pennsylvania and North Carolina. We raise money and engage in a variety of volunteer activities, including canvassing, phoning, texting and postcard/letter writing. In 2023 we concentrated our volunteer activities on the Wisconsin state Supreme Court race and the Virginia state legislative elections. For our fundraising work in 2023, we raised money for the North Carolina Democratic Party as well as raising money for WI and VA. Please contact Anne if you are interested in joining our 2024 efforts. We would love to have you with us. There is a lot of work to do.
