To kick off Earth Week, three members of Mothers Out Front San Francisco attended an online training on April 20th by the Environmental Voter Project, an awesome nonprofit (and ally of Mothers Out Front) which focuses on turning non-voting environmentalists into climate voters. They found the training to be well-organized and clear, and quickly learned (even the grandmother!) how to use a special Hustle app to text non-voters and encourage them to sign up to vote by mail.
After the brief training, Kathie Piccagli, Maia Piccagli, and Cherie Salonga jumped right in and texted hundreds of nonvoters in Pennsylvania, a key swing state. It was fast, easy, fun, and they received more positive than negative replies. (Whew!)
The Environmental Voter Project is offering a training for texting and calling non-voting environmentalists on Friday, April 24, from 12-12:45pm EDT (9-9:45am PDT): RSVP here to get the link. While texting can reach lots of people quickly, calling folks is super important in this time of shelter-in-place when door-to-door canvassing is not a possibility.
Join us for this fun training, and make a difference in the upcoming election! (Or choose another day to get trained here.)
