Description:  Original Art Postcarding in East Portland with Jill Littlewood.

We’d love to have you join us for our next gatherings of WRITING POSTCARDS in Portland, for the purpose of influencing the upcoming elections.

When we get started, we plan to take some time to socialize before settling into the task of writing postcards.  We’ll have a small amount of snacks/refreshments to share.  We hope you’ll join us! We’ll also discuss the possibility of venturing into letter writing!

Why write postcards?

–       To register voters among young adults who haven’t voted before

–       To encourage Democratic voters in swing districts to get out and vote

–       To champion specific congressional candidates in swing states

We will provide blank postcards; the names and addresses of Democratic, Independent, and previously unregistered voters; brief, useful bullet points to write on the cards; and all art materials for making political art. To get a better feel for this craftivism activity, please check out this short video from our original postcard art creator and Third Act Oregon member, Jill Littlewood.

Because yes!  This can be a place to express your artistic feelings about the political situation as well.  So, in addition to writing a few lines of text relevant to whatever race we’re trying to influence, you’re encouraged (not required) to draw a picture on the postcard as well: a flower, a heart, a flag, a ship of state.

And if drawing isn’t your thing, we’ll have rubber stamps and inkpads, with simple graphics, or words to tell people to VOTE.

This 2-hour working sessions are fun, informative, social, and critical to supporting our democracy and a good opportunity to meet other fellow Third Actors.
