Prophetic Voter Volunteer Oportunity


From: Lisa Amman <lamman@isaiahmn.org>

Subject: Pastors needed. Please read.

Dear Colleagues and Prophetic Leaders,

Thank you for the amazing work that you have done in the Prophetic Voter Campaign.  So far we have had over 12,000 conversations, have signed up nearly 10,000 Prophetic Voters, about 5000 of which are "low propensity voters".  In order for the Prophetic Voters to be politically relevant to win on the values and issues we are moving together, we need all of our Prophetic Voters to actually vote.  That is why we are organizing 400+ shifts for our 4-day Get Out the Vote.   We need clergy and religious leaders to sign up especially during the DAY on Monday and Tuesday.

It's time to bring the lost & alienated sheep back into the fold of our democracy…We are writing to ask you to take 2 shifts of door knocking or phone calling to GOTV (Get Out the Vote) either next Monday, Nov 3rd or on Election Day the 4th.  The available shifts are:

Monday, Nov 3rd
10-2 doors
2-6 doors
6-9 phones

Tuesday, Nov 4th
10-2 doors or phones
2 – 5 doors or phones
5-8 doors or phones

It's been over four months since we met at the Minneapolis convention center to launch our Prophetic Voter campaign.  You may have been involved in many pieces of this campaign or you may have waited until now.  Either way, we need to get the folks we have been called to reach, low propensity voters of faith, who we have talked to these last months, to the pools.  Their votes matter,…they matter…and it is our job as the Church to make sure they know it! As Jesus gathered the lost sheep of Israel, let us gather the lost sheep of Minnesota!

Will you help?
Grant & I can help to answer your questions and get you registered.

In God's Love,
Lisa Amman
