Reclaim Our Vote Phone Banks – Sundays from 12-2pm pt. WHEN: Every Sunday, from Sept 6 onward. Pre-register HERE
Looking for a way to do anti-racist work from home? Join SURJ Marin in phoning out-of-state voters who have likely been purged from their voter rolls. Together, we will provide voters with the tools they need to cast their ballots in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and more! Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) is a civil rights / voter outreach campaign organized by the nonpartisan Center for Common Ground of Virginia, with partners like Black Voters Matter, the NAACP, and Mi Familia Vota. The ROV campaign is led by people of color and has reached out to nearly a million voters since 2017. Through outreach to people in states with long histories of voter suppression, ROV has increased turnout among voters of color by large margins. Please join us every Sunday until the election from 12-2pm PST to phone bank for ROV. No experience is necessary as we will meet on Zoom for training and ongoing support to make calls. Please come ready with a phone and computer or iPad/tablet.
In this challenging time, let’s come together and support every person’s right to vote!
What does it mean to have a white racial identity? Why is it so hard to talk about racism? How do we have these conversations and still center Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the movement for racial justice? If you’ve ever wondered these things and if you’d like to join a conversation unpacking these questions and more, join us! Our goals will be to talk about:
• Learning how to disrupt racism.
• Understanding whiteness
• Starting to talk about race
This workshop is intended primarily for the education of white people. We welcome all who want to help move white people along in the movement for racial justice.
