Online auction will fight voter suppression
Indivisible Vashon and Vashon Maury SURJ are partnering to launch an online auction in an effort to raise money for groups fighting voter suppression, with the goal of raising $20,200.
The auction went live Wednesday, Aug. 12, and will run for two weeks.
Organizers are still gathering items to bid on, including art, quilts, acupuncture, gardening, chainsawing, and massage. Those who are interested may consider donating food to be auctioned, house cleaning services, guided kayak tours, or more. The group will accept any item with a worth of $20 or more.
