The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a nonpartisan civil rights organization, is looking for volunteers for their peer-to-peer text messaging Hustle Campaign. The campaign is designed to increase voter turnout for this year’s midterm election by connecting engaged voters with infrequent voters. Read on to learn more and to volunteer today!
Our nation is in a pivotal moment. This year’s midterm elections are a critical opportunity for us to use our voices to move toward a better tomorrow for our communities and families.
In an effort to fight voter suppression and increase voter turnout, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is calling for volunteers to join their Hustle Campaign, a peer-to-peer texting campaign that aims to engage hundreds of thousands of infrequent African-American voters to encourage them to vote during this important election cycle.
Volunteers in Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania (NAACP’s targeted tier 1 states) are especially needed. Volunteers (‘Hustlers’) will work entirely on their own schedules, from their homes, using a mobile app to chat via text with fellow voters to get out the vote. The NAACP will award the top five Hustlers in each tier 1 state with prizes!
If you are interested, please sign up to become a ‘Hustler’ volunteer by Friday, October 26. It’s easy, fast, and important.
Equal Voice Action was formed by and for poor and low-income families to use their voice to influence policies that improve the economic and social well-being of all families. Engaging our communities and inviting them to join us at the polls is the first step towards a just America where the voices of all families are heard.
