Supporting VP Biden & Senator Harris, Announcing our September Guest Speaker

Support Biden-Harris in Battle Ground States

We are weeks away from the most important election of our lives, and we need YOUR help reaching LGBTQ+ and pro-equality voters in battleground states to ensure Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris are victorious in November.

The shift is every Tuesday from 12:00 – 2:00 PM (Hawaii Time) and you can do it from the safety of your own home. You don’t have to do the entire 2 hours, even 30 minutes can make a big difference.
