POWER Voter Engagement Program

Sunday, August 26 from 3 - 5 p.m.

Voter engagement is a critical tool in activism. A huge part of citizen power lies within our right and responsibility to vote. Grassroots campaigns have proven to be effective in moving voters to the polls and increasing candidates’ win margin an average of 3.5%. We saw an example of this in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected and more recently in this year’s primary races across the country. POWER’s voter engagement program, The People’s Movement, has a goal to move thousands of new and infrequent voters in Pennsylvania to the poll in the general election. POWER’s new voter engagement organizer, Kendra Cochran, recently trained nearly 100 POWER leaders eager to amp up the fight against injustices that plague our communities. Attendees began to understand and learn how to exercise the tools of voter education and how to engage congregations across Pennsylvania. We look forward to learning more at our next session on August 26th. Learn more at https://powerinterfaith.org/calendar/#!calendar.
