Virginia Outreach to African American Voters
Black Votes Matter and 2016/ 2017 are both critical years for Black Voters in Virginia because so much is at stake with the 2016 Presidential race along with the 2017 Gubernatorial and General Assembly elections. We can make real change on over-criminalization, police misconduct, poverty, education, and mass incarceration with these elections .
The Virginia State Conference NAACP along with many other
participating organizations has committed to reaching 240,000 voters
throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. We have setup our Voter
Activation Network to allow you to canvass (knock on doors), call from
home from 11am til 9pm (Virtual Phonebank) or organize a community
phonebank in your neighborhood.
We want to know how you are able to support our GOTV efforts and what we can do to ensure your success.
Phonebank from Home
Regardless of where you live, you can make phone calls n any of the targeted districts in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We have lists of voters available for Richmond, Henrico, Emporia, Brunswick, Roanoke, Petersburg, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Danville, Martinsville, Southampton and Hampton.
We can setup group or individual trainings so that you can make the best use of the Voter Activation Network. It is critical that the results from canvassing or phonebanking are immediately entered into the VAN so that we can assess how much work still needs to be done.
