Jewish Community Action — the localÂ non-profit group working on the issues of affordable housing, immigration and racial justice — is helping to get out the vote for the Nov. 2 elections.
JCA quotes the late Sen. Paul Wellstone: “The future will belong to those who have passion and are willing to work hard to make our country better.”
In a statement sent to potential volunteers, JCA is offering “opportunities to register voters, talk to people about issues you care about, offer rides to the polls, inform people of their polling location and more.”
Now through Election Day, JCA will host phone banks, go door to door, distribute voter information on Halloween (“Trick or Vote”), and provide rides to the polls.
Volunteers will receiveÂ brief training for all activities, materials, scripts, and lists of people to contact. People can be sent out in teams. No experience is needed.
Jewish Community Action will provide details, locations, etc., when individuals respond.
For information and to make a reservation to volunteer, contact Jewish Community Action Voter Engagement Coordinator Hannah Knazan-Lippman (hannah [at] jewishcommunityaction [dot] org), or call: 612-723-4233.
