Reclaim Our Vote Fundraiser

August 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What:  Fundraiser for RECLAIM OUR VOTE –  RSVP at bit.ly/ROV-Aug-11 

Date:  Sunday August 11

Time:  4:00 to 6:00 pm

Where:  Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwood City (UUFRC), 2124 Brewster Ave, Redwood City CA 94062

Why:    Reclaim Our Vote is a volunteer-driven, nonpartisan voter outreach campaign to fight voter suppression in various states that have been severely impacted by it, especially in the South.   Reclaim Our Vote is organized by the Center for Common Ground of Virginia, with the help of the NAACP, Black Voters Matter, VoteRiders, DemLabs, Mi Familia Vota and other organizations.  This summer and fall we are contacting voters of color, some of whom have been purged from the voter rolls, to ask them to re-register and to vote in important federal and statewide elections.

Come find out what Reclaim Our Vote is doing right now – and our plans for 2020. We will have delightful hors d’oeuvres, and an online webinar presentation by Andrea Miller, Founding Board Member of Center for Common Ground. We want to raise $5,000; $2,000 in matching funds has already been raised.

Grassroots $20 / General $50 / Supporter $100 / Partner $250 / Sponsor $500

Here is the impact of your tax-deductible donation:

  • $100 supports 300 phone calls by low-income African-American senior women in Virginia
  • $250 supports up to 25 one-minute GOTV ads on rural black radio stations in VA and NC
  • $500 supports texting 6,250 voters of color for GOTV for Nov 5 election in VA

 RSVP at bit.ly/ROV-Aug-11
