This past weekend, volunteers and organizers across South Carolina participated in a Day of Action to engage voters and further the conversation about the 2012 presidential election with their neighbors and friends.
Volunteers collected "I'm in" cards from supporters at Benedict College's homecoming football game, and northeast Richland County supporters gathered at a house meeting hosted by Neighborhood Team Leader Mary Ann to learn about the Neighborhood Team Model and schedule volunteers for phone banking and one-on-one meetings.
Mary Ann is a newly confirmed Neighborhood Team Leader and is engaging her local community about President Obama's efforts to put Americans back to work and grow our economy with the American Jobs Act. Using the skills she learned through our training programs, she recruited attendees for her house party and spoke to them about why the work volunteers like them do is critical to our efforts to re-elect President Obama.
In the Low Country, volunteers registered new voters, made hundreds of phone calls, and identified new prospective Neighborhood Team Leaders to help build our grassroots movement in the state. They also connected with members of the local Latino community as we work to grow the diversity of our organization and reach out to people of all backgrounds and ages.
Stay tuned for more details on our next Day of Action, but don’t wait to get involved! Find an opportunity to make a difference in your community here.
