VIRTUAL- ROV Phone Bank Training with Sister District Marin

September 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
Learn how to make calls for Reclaim Our Vote.
ROV is a racial justice movement to empower underrepresented voters of color whose votes have been historically suppressed.  We help de-registered voters (who have been purged from voter rolls) to re-register, provide reliable information to help people navigate the complexities of vote by mail, and encourage people to vote early or on election day.  We do this work not on behalf of any candidate or political party, but in support of including more people of color in the electorate. 
85% of our called voters (live contacts and voicemails) voted in Alabama’s December 2017 special election.
65% of our 185,000 calls (live contacts and voicemails), with partner group Black Voters Matter, resulted in votes in Georgia for the 2018 Midterms.
In 2019, ROV sent 347,000 postcards and made 90,000 phone bank calls to voters of color in North Carolina and Virginia. 20 to 25% of the de-registered voters we postcarded in North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District registered to vote before the September 2019 special election in that district. 

We win when people vote. Voting information is not always readily accessible in voter suppression states so we really can make a difference.
