Yes! Thank you all! These are the conversations we must be having with our friends and family - especially those who are talking about not voting bc it doesn’t matter.
Precious Green
01:14:26
2016 showed us what can happen if many of us don’t bother to vote and now we’re living through the consequences. We can’t have another election where so many stay at home. And it’s not enough to protest, tweet and post. Too much is at stake!
Hope WoodMoore
01:14:52
Yes @Precious! We’ve already seen what happens when we don’t bother to vote.
Lynne
01:15:12
Accountability agree.
Hope WoodMoore
01:15:23
Yep! The vote is the first step.
Luretha Senyo-Mensah
01:15:42
Accountability!!!!
Precious Green
01:16:37
Second everything Pat is saying! The current administration released its SCOTUS wish list and it is filled with right wing firebrands like Arkansas’ Sen. Cotton who dismissed slavery as a ‘necessary evil. UGH!

@Peggy, will you talk about the neighborhood councils? Do thy have any actual power or say? How do we get involved beyond attending their meetings?
Hope WoodMoore
01:18:51
Sharing these stories is the way we motivate others to vote with us\.
Rev. D. Jacquelyn Edwards

Thank you Rev. Francine..amen

Yes, Rev. FranCione. The “silent majority” is being called upon to actively and collectively create what we believe.
Precious Green
01:22:35
Vote by mail and then, if you’re able, work at the polls
Hope WoodMoore
01:23:22
Yes @ Precious!!
Lynne Daniels,RScP
01:23:43
WIth CA a vote by mail state, do we still need to request an absentee ballot?
Hope WoodMoore
01:23:54
We have so much power to make change this election!
Jei Watkins
01:24:31
Are there similar workshops being offered in San Leandro? If you are not certain, where would I find such information?
Kimberly Satterield she, hers
01:24:59
I just got a expect your ballot soon communication
Precious Green
01:25:32
California really leads the way with vote by mail and engagement. We’re incredibly lucky here.
Jei Watkins
01:25:52
Thank you!
Carol Johnson Williams
01:25:55
I applied for absentee ballot many years ago, when I realized I could not vote at my school, which was a polling place. It allowed me vote at ANY polling place.
Hope WoodMoore
01:25:55
moore4oakland@gmail.com is Peggy’s email
Rev. D. Jacquelyn Edwards
01:26:04
We can also look at providing some resource information for San Leandro.
Lynne Daniels,RScP
01:26:15
Received a flyer from Postal service saying to request absentee ballots early. It was a national flyer but was confusing.
Precious Green
01:26:54
East Bay Citizen is a good local news source for San Leandro and Alameda. https://ebcitizen.com/

Carol Johnson Williams

Yes, Darryl. East Bay is literally global now. All those people of the Preservation Park times are globally represented. We can reach out globally as we act locally, and know the Truth universally.
Luretha Senyo-Mensah
01:34:16
I think an explanation of the electoral college would be helpful.
Jei Watkins
01:34:33
I agree
Carol Johnson Williams
01:35:10
Thank you, Tai! Beautiful work
Hope WoodMoore
01:35:21
Thank you for that suggestion. We will be sure to include an explanation of the electoral college in the next workshop.
joannejohnson
01:35:59
Yes Luretha, I would like an explanation of the the Electoral college as well! I think it needs to be abolished!
Luretha Senyo-Mensah
01:36:50
Absolutely. And it is very discouraging and confusing to people.
Carol Johnson Williams
01:37:48
AG also impacts schools
Precious Green
01:38:35
AG also defends the state’s interest if and when they conflict with the federal government. They’ve been really busy with the current administration
Hope WoodMoore

Here is a resource you can access after this workshop to explain the Electoral College can be found here: https://votesmart.org/education/electoral-college#.X10QWy2ZNN0

Attorney General also impacts schools, attendance, and services. They have a LOT to do with access to rights.
Rev. D. Jacquelyn Edwards

We invite you to chat in any questions or comments.
Hope WoodMoore
01:51:05
Yes we can!
Carol Johnson Williams
01:51:31
this education SAM is providing is so important to being able to strategize and engage in informed voting.
Hope WoodMoore
01:52:14
One strategy I have for voting on judges is to look at who endorses them. If those people share my values then I vote for that judge.
Jei Watkins
01:53:14
This is great and so informative. Thank you!
Pat Baxter
01:53:59
Voting for Judges is critical. lifetime position. current administration has put in many right wing judges and this has a major impact on our BIPOC community and prison population
Precious Green
01:54:00
I would appreciate more explanation of the city vs county roles in a later session. For example, it’s been a little confusing to turn to Alameda county for public health guidelines and what not and hear that Berkeley is carved out. Why isn’t Oakland carved out too?
Carol Johnson Williams
01:54:24
Great idea Hope! Are there are ways to see the active histories or records?
Precious Green
01:56:05
I think that’s a little confusing. When we vote for judges, they serve for a term and have to run again. The lifetime appointments are generally for federal judges, hence why it’s so vital to vote for presidential and senatorial candidates who reflect our values
Precious Green
01:56:15
Thank you Patty!!
Hope WoodMoore
01:56:15
I usually just Google search the judges name and/or the names of anyone who endorses them
Precious Green
01:56:42
Ergh… thank you Peggy!
Hope WoodMoore
01:57:10
DA’s have so much power over the “justice” system
Hope WoodMoore
01:57:38
DA’s are a key space where civil rights organizations are focused on electing and holding accountable.
Hope WoodMoore
01:57:53
Sheriff is another place that really impacts the “justice” system
Precious Green
01:57:55
If you don’t believe the DA matters, just look at what Chesa Boudin is doing as SFDA vs what Alameda’s DA is up to....
Carol Johnson Williams
01:58:06
Ferguson,MO (Michael Brown) Just shifted their local government to majority African American
Carol Johnson Williams
01:59:23
Strong DAs for Civil & Human Rights must be supported after being elected.
Hope WoodMoore
01:59:56
Yep! Election is the first step. Then accountability - supporting progressive DA’s to do the right thing bc they need community support to make changes
Carol Johnson Williams
02:02:10
PGE used to be public. It has become privatized and profit-focused, which impacts fire prevention, costs, etc.
joannejohnson
02:02:57
Too much to remember for me!
Precious Green
02:03:06
Re propositions and measures, it’s always a good idea to look at who’s funding them.
Lisa Hamilton
02:03:16
I’m learning so much. I look forward to reviewing the ppt again!
Hope WoodMoore
02:03:24
Yep! These guides for each level of elected positions will be offered to you after this workshop

Battleground States are any state that could reasonably be won by either the Democratic or Republican presidential candidate by a swing in votes. These states are usually targeted by both major-party campaigns, especially in competitive elections.
