Greylock Together is one of thousands of Indivisible groups fighting for progressive values and a stronger democracy. We are grassroots, loosely structured, and action-oriented.
We are committed to FLIPPING THE SENATE Together in 2020! Join us as we support Democratic challengers in the following Senate races: Colorado, Iowa, Maine, Montana and North Carolina. Find our event page here.
Meetings are in Williamstown (Williamstown Youth Center) and in North Adams (UNO Center), every other Sunday from 3:00-4:30. See the calendar below for dates. Please note that due to the coronavirus, in-person meetings are cancelled until further notice.
We have spent the four years since our inception working ceaselessly on a thousand different fronts. Greylock Together has raised more than $100,000 to flip the Senate in 2020, and tens of thousands more for other causes over the years (such as relief for Puerto Rico). But now we’re in a final sprint to the general election of 2020, and we’re focusing our efforts.
Vote Forward is a voter-canvassing effort that’s perfect for our pandemic era. You write letters or send postcards to voters to remind them to get to the polls. We’ll even give you all the supplies you need! Write Jeanne at email@example.com or Bernadine at firstname.lastname@example.org to join in. Let us know if you need us to include stamps, or if you will provide them for your packet. You can also print your own letters by going to the VoteForward.org site and signing up. You can really make a difference!
If you want to write letters while hanging out with other folks — which is pretty fun! — then there’s a Vote Forward letter writing event every Wednesday at 5:30 pm, conducted by Alyson Slutsky. To contact her: Gummo18@gmail.com. There’s also a Thursday group, every week at 4:00 pm; contact Frank at Farkas1945@gmail.com
Ranked Choice Voting
Ranked Choice Voting is an easy and common-sense way to reduce the toxicity of our politics and allow our choices at the ballot box to expand past the two party duopoly. Voters just rank their choices in order on their ballots, and if your first choice loses, your second choice is counted. You never need choose between the lesser of two evils out of fear of losing your voice.
RCV is on the ballot in Massachusetts, and we need everyone to Vote Yes on 2! Want a yard sign? Get one now — this will really make a difference in showing people that this isn’t a crazy theory.
You also need to do one other thing: talk to your friends and relatives in Massachusetts. Tell them you support this reform and why. Tell them they’re already doing it in Maine. Get the word out. This could change everything.
In 2018, Amendment 4 in Florida helped restore voting rights to 1.4 million people with felony convictions. Lift+Every+Vote is carrying this victory forward by postcarding 70,000 individuals who are immediately eligible to register to vote to remind them to do so—and they need our help! If twenty GTers each write 50 postcards, we can make a big impact by postcarding 1,000 of these potential voters. Ready to join the effort? Email Sarah at email@example.com and let her know 1) How many postcards you’d like to write; and 2) whether you can provide your own postage or would like it provided. Let’s help our fellow citizens get back on the voter rolls!
