Message from Black Voters Matter!!!

Can’t stop. Won’t stop email blast 11-18-2020 from https://blackvotersmatterfund.org

SNIP
We will be hitting the road once again on the “Blackest Bus in America” to help register and get out the vote all over Georgia for the upcoming Senate run-off election. Over the next several weeks, BVM will be extending its We Got The Power campaign to make sure Black voters in Georgia are supported and engaged. We need every Georgian to help us flip the Senate. You can register to vote until December 7. Make sure you’re registered to vote and vote early. This election is not over.

Are you outside of Georgia but want to help our efforts? Donate whatever you can afford to BVM to help support the work we are doing in the state. Your donation helps our efforts to reach folks statewide. https://blackvotersmatterfund.org/donate/

7. They're effective, IMO

By October I had started ignoring most messages from the various PACs, but a volunteer from BVM texted me and asked if they could count on me to remind 3 friends to vote.

I had already turned out several people but I responded "yes."

Then he asked me to think it through and tell him the names.

I had to think about it a little but I gave him 3 names. He thanked me and told me I was doing a great job. Lol.

Then on November 1, he texted again and asked if I had gotten X, Y, and Z to vote. I didn't respond. By then, I had given up on Z, but the text caused me to reach out again, more aggressively. I thought it was a lost cause but she voted on Election Day. Mission accomplished. 🇺🇸

8. That's a great story! How did you convince "Z" -- what did you do that was more aggressive?

9. Well, that was probably the wrong word choice but I put it on her Google calendar as an

appointment with date, time, and her polling location. For 7am. And she actually did it! Arrived 30 minutes early with a chair and was the 3rd in line! I was shocked!
