Due to popular demand, we are holding another in-person letter writing party on October 23 at UUCP with Vote Forward and others: Join other UUCP Friends and Members in a Letter Writing Party after Service! The Good Trouble Team will supply letters and postcards, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org before October 20, so we know how many letters to order. We also have stamps available for anyone who wants to be involved, but needs help with the cost of postage. Just let us know when you RSVP. The more the merrier, bring a friend! Our letter writing party in September was a tremendous success that resulted in 460 postcards/letters being written.
