We are just over a week away from the November 3rd election, and we wanted to provide a few resources and updates on pre- and post election news and events. Democracy Defenders  will meet for a final pre-election call Sunday, November 1st at 5pm. You can RSVP for the call here and please share our Facebook event widely – we want to be growing our movement now, so that we will be even stronger when it is time to take action!
