Rationale: VOICE will conduct a strictly non-partisan Get Out The Vote (GOTV) campaign in VA congressional district 10-
Why? Politicians count! The more power we demonstrate, the more we can act on our issues.
Before each shift there will be a 30 minute training session teaching leaders the basics of non-partisan GOTV work..
Background: VOICE is “of” Northern Virginia – VOICE is not made up of professional campaigners, and we think that’s a good thing. - We are an organization of organizations, primarily faith based institutions such as churches, mosques and synagogues, that are rooted in Northern Virginia.VOICE families live here; this is our parish & our backyard, and for the families of VOICE to matter politically in Northern Virginia, VOICE volunteers have to be politically involved when the spotlight is on our backyard. Citizens of Virginia caring about the election have more power than out of state campaigners flying in for a one time campaign. VOICE is STRICTLY NONPARTISAN - VOICE institutions and families are incredibly diverse; they come from a variety of different racial, religious and political backgrounds, which we also think is a good thing. People and institutions from different backgrounds working together to make democracy work makes our communities and organizations stronger.
Remember that non-partisan GOTV is a great way to teach students the importance of being civically engaged, and counts as service hours!
