June Action Items - No Votes for Genocide

I marked the previous thread as DONE. A summary of our previous actions can be found in that thread here. @Bozzii and I met today and drafted an outline for Action Items this month. If you have any comments about that, please reply below or send either of us a direct message.

If you have questions about any of these action items, please schedule a quick zoom meeting with a member of the Steering Committee here. We were elected to help Members achieve the goals they voted for, so please don’t hesitate to book a meeting!

Task Details

No Votes for Genocide Pledge

NoVotesForGenocide.com

  • Edit Pledge Language (see Google Doc)
  • I made another edit to the pledge language to ensure it fits the form without scrolling.
  • @Bozzii and I updated the pledge language to account for a potential temporary ceasefire.
  • We need at least one more person to review it, but more would be better.

These sheets will be the primary way we collect signatures in person.

  • Include: pledge, name, address, phone, email, “Help Do Outreach” checkbox, and QR codes linking to the pledge and WCU registration.
  • Small flyer with pledge, QR code, and link to the WCU website.

Outreach Materials

Half-page flyers with information: (see Google Doc):

  • Information about Palestine
  • Josh’s voting record (we need to update language on IG post here)

I made printer friendly versions that we could use in our toolkit. Please let me know if you have edits.


We need to revise the flyer so it does not have Joe Biden’s and Josh Harder’s face on it. A lot of folks were turned off just by seeing their faces. Maybe displaying Gaza/Palestine/Ceasefire/End the War in larger font would work better.

During our last general meeting, we cemented the dates for the upcoming tabling events. On Saturday, WCU members and volunteers launched our first day of tabling for our No Votes for Genocide pledge. We gathered 74 signatures in the two and a half hours we spent in the Costco parking lot. Additionally, a comrade organizing a rally in Lodi reached out to us to attend their event, beginning a discussion about sponsoring the event.
