RECLAIM OUR VOTE PHONE-BANKING/SUPPORT
Every Thursday until November 3rd election, 2:00-4:00 PM

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, GNPS has organized a
volunteer project with the Center for Common Ground - Reclaim Our Vote (ROV),
to directly address the issue of Black voter suppression.  
ROV is dedicated to empowering under-represented voters in communities of color
by increasing voter registration and reducing the barriers to voting.
Reclaim Our Vote is a non-partisan effort, and they provide
online training and supporting materials. For more information,
and for online training, view the Reclaim our Vote Website.


For GNPS members who are trained, we have scheduled weekly
phone-banking sessions to support each other in making the calls.
Join us in this effort: Reclaim Our Vote Phonebanking Session
