Washington State Campaign for Howie Hawkins for President 2020

Washington State Campaign for Howie Hawkins for President 2020

August 28, 2020 user 0

This election season, I’ve been busy organizing in Washington state for Howie Hawkins & Angela Walker (H’20) for Green Party president & vice-presidential candidates. If they get 5% of the vote in Washington, the Green Party of Washington will gain major party status and have hope of uniting the Left. We won’t have to waste half of another campaign season gathering signatures just to get a candidate on the ballot so we can vote for them. Contact me to get involved or get more information about any events. Also, to coordinate and organize an H’20 event in your area of Washington.

 

Ongoing Hawkins & Walker campaign activities:

  • We need Greens and allies writing to newspapers (letters-to-the-editor, opinions, etc.) about why we vote Green Party and why we support our candidates. Please let us know what you get into print or if you need help!
  • We want to see Greens and allies signing up for interviews, endorsing Howie & Angela on podcasts, TV, or radio. If you get a feature, please send us a copy or link and let us know!
  • From your phone, in your home, Greens and allies can be recording video testimonials to be posted on our youtube channel about why we vote Green Party and why these candidates matter to us. Please send to C.J. to upload.
  • Don’t wait for our phone-banking parties — contact us to get your list of Washington voters to call or text and touch base with about the Green Party of Washington and our ecosocialist candidates.

How to get H’20 swag like yard signs, masks, buttons, t-shirts, bumper stickers, etc.:

WAGP is currently voting on whether or not to buy into the campaign’s bulk order for H’20 yard signs. We might make our own, instead, if we can get more for our money that way. For now, you can buy an H’20 sign and more and fund the campaign directly through their online store: https://shop.howie20.us/
