BRING CHARGED CELL PHONES, CHARGED LAPTOPS, CHARGER CHORDS AND EARBUDS if you can. We always share. Eruuf-You Can Vote Phone Bank will reach out to voters' families to discuss Easy-To-Do Voter Action for Bipartisan Backing of a House Bill for redrawing fair voting districts. Yes, this is a bipartisan bill and a bipartisan problem with a bipartisan solution!  :) On our last phone bank, we had very good phone conversations where we called over 400 voters in Person County - some people agreed to call their legislators, some were excited to learn "what is You Can Vote," they had never heard of it. And some signed up to be volunteers for You Can Vote!!

In order to have diversity in our leadership and accommodate our Eruuf-YCV phone banks (which are larger than most YCV phone banks with a dozen or more callers), having some co-facilitators would be ideal. We need HOSTS (who do NOT have to be trained captains) to help with the logistics of each event (carry in snacks, drinks, set-up chairs, tables, greet and help set-up volunteers with handouts). 

Contact Emily Cox if you can help.
