Together, POWER congregations have registered just over 1,500 voters. Old First volunteers registered 44 of these voters.
Now we want to make sure they and their neighbors go to the polls on Nov 8.
Between now and election day, POWER has created a plan to talk to 15,000 people to see if they are ready to vote. They are members of our communities who we registered, who pledged to vote and who we think are concerned about school funding, mass incarceration and livable wages.
The plan is to call voters through phone banks and to canvass different neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia with people from other POWER congregations.
Would you like to participate in these efforts with others from Old First and POWER congregations?
Please fill out these doodle polls (linked to each of the events listed below) to indicate you are interested and which dates you are available. Mimi Copp Johnson will be in touch with you about the details.
Phone banks – You will use your own phone and can make calls from anywhere. Because we will use a phone banking system, your telephone number will not be revealed to the people you call.
Canvassing – Together with other volunteers, you will knock on people’s doors. Each date will be in a different neighborhood in Philadelphia.
If you have any questions, please ask me.
