Blue Wave Postcard Movement
We started in 2020 to protect and restore democracy in America. This is our story as published in the Colorado Sun. Between June and December 2020, we sent more than 2.6 million postcards to democratic households in key battleground states including Georgia. In 2021, we advocated for voting rights and the For the People Act. We sent almost 500,000 postcards to voters in key states, urging voters to ask their Senators to support the bills. We also advocated for other important issues in California and Colorado. Here is our 2020-2021 impact summary. In 2022, we are focusing on winning state power so that we can protect free and fair elections down the road.

DO POSTCARDS WORK
☝ In the 2020 Florida Presidential Primary, postcards increased voter turnout in some areas by 3.6%.
☝ To put that in context, Hillary Clinton lost by less than 1% in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
☝ In 2021, our writers sent 100,000 postcards to Arizona and generated 4,465 calls to Senator Sinema's office urging her to support the For the People Act. That's a success rate of 4.5%.
WE WERE ON MSNBC
The Blue Wave Postcard Movement worked tirelessly to turn out voters in key battleground states by sending them personalized postcards for the 2020 election. As of October 2020 when the story was aired on MSNBC, we had established more than 400 postcard groups in 38 states, more than 4,000 volunteers had ordered our postcard kits, and more than 1.7 million households had been reached.
