2016 VOTER EMPOWERMENT PLAN
Ensuring the Political Participation of all Americans
For decades, the NAACP has used its mighty voice and its strength in numbers to force change. Change in our schools. Change in our police departments. Change at our state capitols and in Congress. This year, the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protection of the Voting Rights Act, we will need to draw on the strength of our numbers again.
This summer, we need you to join our partnership of community-based organizations in a coordinated campaign to register more than 33,000 voters in Georgia and 300,000 across America. Together, we will bring them to the polls by leveraging today’s technology including social media and the VAN system, and using the strategies and tactics we’ve learned and perfected over the years, including phone banking, door-to-door canvassing and working with communities and churches. If we act, we can ensure our numbers and presence are not ignored.
