At a recent house meeting in North St. Louis County, team Florissant members and prospective members joined together to celebrate their commitment and successes, hear updates on the campaign, discuss team strategies, outline volunteer opportunities, and plan upcoming voter registration events.
Elaine S. and Berniece T. show their excitement about voter registration events.
“It’s about building relationships,” stated James, a volunteer Field Organizer. “One of the tools we use to build a strong grassroots organization in our neighborhoods and communities is the house party, or house meeting. These are great venues to engage supporters in a comfortable, relaxed environment.”
Attendees at team Florissant’s house meeting were excited to learn about the impact their efforts have already made and determined to make an even bigger impact in the weeks to come.
“We’re driving the campaign hard here.” Explained Debbie P. “Every person we talk to, every “I’m In” card we collect, and, especially, every voter we register is a check mark in the Obama column.”
These volunteers, along with thousands of others, understand what’s at stake this November and refuse to stand on the sidelines. They hope you will join them by attending an upcoming event near you.
