Dear MoveOn member,
Thursday night, civil rights leader and hero Rep. John Lewis delivered a powerful speech about the right to vote. He reminded a nation:
"Your vote is precious, almost sacred. Your vote is the most powerful non-violent tool we have to create a more perfect union."1
He's right, and that's why our Voters Rising election program aims to get swing state voters to "march to the polls" as Rep. Lewis implored.2 We're partnering with the AFL-CIO to run the largest independent voter turnout program in America—employing a revolutionary method to make talking with voters door-to-door five times more effective than before.
On September 15 and 16, we're throwing Voters Rising call parties to recruit MoveOn members in Florida, Nevada, Ohio, and other swing states to volunteer at local campaign offices. But we need a few more parties in Inwood to hit the national goals. Can you host on September 15 or 16?
Thanks for all you do.
–Amy, David, PaKou, Jessica, and the rest of the team
