Moblizing Women of Color to Vote

Given the high stakes of the 2008 elections and the issues that particularly affect women of color, the 41 Million Strong Campaign is hitting the road for 35 days in October on a high profile Get Out the Vote tour to key states. These activiites include raising awareness among communities of color about the issues at stake with a focus on health (including issues of violence against women and HIV&AIDS), economics/poverty, climate change, education, and housing. Target states include Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Know of any Voter Registration and Get Out The Vote activities in these states? Contact Jacqui Patterson at jpatters1@yahoo.com so that they can be sure to visit you on the tour!

This newsletter is made possible with generous funding support from the Ford Foundation and the Ms. Foundation for Women.
