We will be partnering with different organizations and campaigns

phone bank on Thursday, September 17 at 6:45 pm CT.

If you're new to Casten Virtual Phone Banking or have technical issues to resolve, please sign on for training 30 minutes before the event starts. You will need a phone AND a computer or tablet.

The Zoom link and support documents will be provided by email 24 hours before the event. The virtual phone bank access link will be available in the chat once you sign onto the Zoom call.

Time is running out and it will be close. We need all hands on deck.⏰

Climate Emergency!


Wildfires, hurricanes, rapid weather changes, and extreme weather events
will continue and will become more frequent 
if we don't take action TODAY!

This is one of the reasons why we will be phone banking for Casten in our Sean Saturdays at 10 am every week to make sure we
keep the top climate nerd in the US Congress!

Here is one of Casten's accomplishments:

"The Select Committee on the Climate Crisis’ Staff Report is a serious, detailed roadmap for how we as a country can lower our greenhouse gas emissions while rebuilding our economy and tackling systemic inequalities of environmental racism. After many months of hard work, I’m proud to announce that it recommends 8 bills I introduced to:

   ✅Promote grid storage technologies
   ✅Reduce industrial emissions
   ✅Require requiring public companies to disclose climate risks to investors
   ✅Strengthen federal housing efficiency standards
   ✅ Drive innovation and deployment of clean energy and deep decarbonization technologies
   ✅ Restore and strengthen climate science

We know some of you may not be very excited to do phone banks but there are a lot of folks to help you! So please join us, even if you can only stay for a few minutes and make a few calls because our children's future is on the ballot this year!

Fair Tax in Illinois


The old way of taxing income in Illinois is unfair because taxes fall too heavily on working people. Take a look ➡️

Low-income households now pay
almost double what the wealthiest pay in
taxes as a share of their income.
That’s wrong!

Learn more about the Fair Tax and why we need it below from IL State Senator Daniel Biss

and check out yesforfairtax.org!

Black Voters Matter

Black Voters Matter's goal is to increase power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities. Effective voting allows a community to determine its own destiny. We agree with the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

Please consider donating or volunteering for this organization that is doing very important work to uplift Black Voices *everywhere*, including rural counties and smaller cities/towns that are often ignored by candidates, elected officials, political parties, and the media, 365 days a year!
