58] – Join Common Cause activists
around the country at a virtual phonebank to urge voters in key states to
demand their senators’ support the Freedom to Vote Act. Work together to demand bold changes to our democracy to create a
government that represents all of us, not big corporations or special
interests. Call on voters in targeted states and connect them to their Senators
to support the Freedom to Vote Act, and to eliminate the filibuster. These
phone banks are subject to change based on variables. Our democracy is in crisis: with redistricting around
the corner and hundreds of voter suppression laws being introduced in states
across the country, we do not have time to wait. RSVP at https://www.mobilize.us/pfaw/event/376178/?utm_source=PFAW

59] –Catch this panel
discussion What's Next for the U.S.-Japan-South Korea Partnership? on Thurs.,
Nov. 18 from 7 to 9 PM ET. Register at https://bit.ly/3w7Ak9g. Email
email@example.com. Stanford University Freeman Spogli Institute for
International Studies sponsored this event. The ROK-U.S. and U.S.-Japan
joint statements have increased expectations for a possible expansion of
security and economic cooperation among South Korea, the U.S. and Japan.
However, heightened U.S.-China strategic competition, as well as persistent
challenges in the region such as historical tensions and the North Korea
threat, have complicated the strategic calculus of U.S., South Korea and Japan.
Under these circumstances, the South Korea, the U.S. and Japan must define
their economic and security interests and seek ways to maintain friendly
relations among the three countries. This seminar will discuss security
and economic cooperation among Korea, the United States and Japan in
the era of strategic competition between the U.S. and China. See https://fsi.stanford.edu/events/whats-next-us-japan-south-korea-partnership-security-and-economic-cooperation-new-era.
60] –Team Auburn
[firstname.lastname@example.org] wants you to join a conversation on Thurs., Nov. 18 at
7 PM ET. ‘I Need You to Survive - Belonging in a Radically Divided World.’ RSVP
at https://auburnseminary.org/survive/. The
ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; racial uprisings sparked by the killing of George
Floyd; the increased impacts of climate change and economic devastation; and
overt threats to democracy typified by voter suppression and ever tighter
immigration restrictions. Some speculate that racism is too endemic to
ever be eradicated in the U.S. Auburn does not believe that. Auburn will present and reflect on the
findings, conducted with individual groups of Black, Latinx and White leaders
of faith and moral courage committed to grappling with what it means to belong
to each other in a profoundly divided world.
