Miriam was never too involved in politics before last year. But after she volunteered to help a friend out on Election Day in 2010, she knew she needed to get active.
“Even though I’d never volunteered really on any campaign, I knew it was up to me to get involved and start changing things.”
Miriam, a retired army nurse, has been organizing with the Obama campaign since May. As a neighborhood team leader, she is working hard to grow her team in Epsom. She knows that a neighborhood team takes folks from all backgrounds and that volunteering isn’t a cookie-cutter experience.
“You can volunteer in many, many ways. It’s not that you have to be this big outspoken person. We have a lot of things that need to be done. There is something for anybody, that anybody can do.”
