New Challenge: 10 Days of Action to Protect Democracy

Thursday, September 10, 2020


As we head into the most tumultuous election of our lifetime it is our civic duty to not only vote but to engage in the process. I incorporated feedback from the #30DayEducationChallenge to create a more digestable, action-oriented challenge for us to do together to protect our democracy. 

What to expect: Each day will have an action item that takes 10-20 minutes to complete. Action items will include explicit instructions, links to follow, templates to use, etc. Everything can be done from home. We're gonna register voters, adopt swing states, and all kinds of fun stuff. 

When it starts: Monday, September 14 kicks off our 10 days of action. This day is exactly 50 days until the biggest election of our lifetime.

Where to find the action items: We got a few ways to get it done:

  • Action items will post to Instagram every morning by 7 a.m. (share on your stories, encourage others to join the action of the day even if they're not joining the challenge).
  • Action items will post here at by 5 a.m. 
  • Sign up here to receive the action items to your inbox every morning at 5 a.m.  (note: if you received #30DayEducationChallenge emails you'll get these too) (another note: gmail plays too much - check your promotions tab, your social tab, your spam folder, under the bed... these emails go everywhere).
Why we should do this: Besides our civic duty mentioned above, this is the most important election of our lifetime. Since the 2016 elections, states have disenfranchised voters at an alarming rate (see here and here). I don't think I need to do a point-by-point on what a sh*t show this administration has been, but without action from people on the ground there is a very very high chance that we will have another four years of this. So, we're going to hit the (virtual) streets and make some change. See y'all out there.
