"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people. There comes a time when silence is betrayal."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Are you stressed by the news and the pandemic?
Are you looking for something you can do to ensure that Joe Biden wins and Democrats have victory up and down the ballot in November?
What if I told you that you have a unique contribution to make? That you can do something critically important right now and through November? We all have multiple networks of people we interact with. You can call, email or text people in your network, and they will answer or read your communication. This means you are uniquely positioned to talk to them about what is at stake in this election and why their vote for Democrats is so important. Contacting people you know in Chatham, North Carolina, and across the country will help us win in November.
While many of us have avoided talking politics with friends and acquaintances, now is the time to start these conversations. And it is important that you have conversations and listen.
Here’s how you can participate in Activate Your Networks:
- Identify people you know that you are willing to contact about the election and voting
- Download talking points and other information on ActivateYourNetworks.org
- Contact your people
- Direct them to our website to sign up for our newsletter and for election information
- Ask your people to contact five others
- Are they registered? Do they plan to vote? Do they have a PLAN to vote?
- Encourage them to support CCDP financially as well as other efforts to elect Democrats
- Follow up in the fall to remind them to vote
- Celebrate with them and CCDP on election night!
You may not want do all these things with every contact, but every contact helps us win.
