WELCOME, MENOMONEE FALLS DEMOCRATS!
There are Democrats in Menomonee Falls! We have been active every day since the beginning of 2018.
Menomonee Falls Action Team (abbreviated MFAT) is a grassroots group of volunteers, activists, and voters. We organize to fight for a better representation of our values in government.
Our volunteer team of Menomonee Falls Democrats uses resources provided by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, Biden for President, and Indivisible. Join us as we make calls, send texts, write postcards, send letters, hold virtual events, talk with Menomonee Falls friends/family/neighbors, and put up yard signs in our part of Waukesha County.
AT-HOME WEEKEND OF ACTION PHONEBANK
Thank you to our committed volunteers who donated their time during our biggest at-home phonebanks ever, in May, June, July, four of them in August, and now active in September!
We need your help again for our next Weekend of Action At-Home Phonebank. This is the rewarding grunt work that wins elections. We provide a list of voters to call, a script, and training.
POSTCARDS TO VOTERS
Our team sent almost 1,000 postcards to known Democrats in Menomonee Falls who had not requested absentee ballots for the upcoming November elections, including for president. The kit included postcards and postage, the names and addresses of voters, and a suggested message. We are already seeing results, with absentee ballot requests up in Menomonee Falls. Great job everyone!
BLACK LIVES MATTER
Photos from the peaceful protest held in Menomonee Falls are striking.
HAVE FUN AND MEET NEW DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS
Typically, we hold a monthly Breakfast with Democrats at Cafe Agora, but due to COVID-19 concerns, that in-person event is on hold. In the meantime, join our Zoom Breakfast with Democrats on the last Tuesday of every month. Meet Democrats and have fun. Spend time with people who share your values.
We also would normally march in the Menomonee Falls Christmas and Independence Day Parades, but those events were put on hold by their organizers for safety. We will get back out there once it is safe to do so!
ORGANIZING 2020 IN THE FALLS
The way we win elections in 2020 is by activating Democrats and those Independents and conservatives aligned with our values.
Virtual At-Home Phonebanking: Turn your home into your own phone bank. Our in-person phone banks are currently suspended due to COVID-19 concerns. But we can provide you with lists of people to call, suggested things to say, and the training you need to have effective interactions over the phone. If calling voters isn’t your thing, we also need volunteers to call our experienced phone bankers and sign them up for shifts.
At-Home Text Banking: For those who are unable or prefer not to make phone calls, we need volunteers to send text messages to voters as well as to potential new volunteers.
Yard Signs: We have yard signs for Tom Palzewicz for Congress, Neal Plotkin for State Senate, Emily Siegrist for State Assembly District 24, and hope to have more stock of Joe Biden signs soon!
Our in-person year-round canvassing is currently suspended due to concerns over COVID-19. We want our community safe and healthy, and we feel that knocking doors introduces unnecessary risk. Also, our in-person phone banks are on hold.
There are so many ways that you can contribute even while we fight the spread of COVID-19. Be a driver to drop off call packets to volunteers during an at-home phone bank or deliver yard signs, enter data, write thank you notes, post about our events and projects on your social media pages, or make a donation of snacks, supplies, or resources.
