With the stakes being as high as they are, voter suppression already more rampant than ever, and the nationalist right emboldened by conspiracy theorists and the President himself, we are depending on you to ensure people are able to vote freely and safely.

How can you help? By becoming an Election Defender. Sign up to be an Election Defender here.

Unlike traditional poll watchers, Election Defenders will be working to provide safe supports for voting (such as PPE and water), election & voter defense, de-escalating right-wing intimidation tactics, and signaling to a network of groups and lawyers if and where trouble arises.

We need you on election day — and training starts TONIGHT at 7:30 PM ET! Sign up here.

The Movement for Black Lives is part of a united front effort with hundreds of other mass-member organizations to ensure free and fair elections. Protecting the rights of people to vote in-person on November 3rd means thousands of people signing on for different roles.

Signing up today means you’ll have access to weekly training and a slack channel where our efforts can be coordinated around the nation. Join us tonight!

About this event

(español debajo) With the stakes being as high as they are, voter suppression already more rampant than ever, and the nationalist right emboldened by conspiracy theorists and the President himself, we can’t depend on anyone else ensuring people are able to vote freely and safely.

Election Defenders will be working to provide safe supports for voting (such as PPE and water), and election and voter defense, de-escalating right-wing intimidation tactics and signaling to a network of groups and lawyers if and where trouble breaks out.

These trainings will cover different areas each week so we are asking everyone to attend all four trainings or email to request a video of training.

  • Poll Monitoring
  • Bystander Training
  • De-escalation
  • Direct Action 101
  • Combating Disinformation
