WEEK OF SEPT 13, 2020
Sunday, Sept 13, 7 pm
I hope you will be as excited as I am about a virtual event we’re putting together for members and volunteers of ALL 13 regional Blue Wave Coalitions, hosted by BWC of St. Johns County! I think it will be very inspiring for volunteers to hear about what Blue Wavers are doing in other parts of the state. As you know, we have coalitions in Miami-Dade, Lee, Sarasota, Manatee, Palm Beach, Alachua, Volusia, Orange, Brevard, Charlotte, Broward, and Duval! Each of the leaders will invite their members and will spend 2 minutes describing what they’re doing to help us WIN Florida.
To make it even more motivating, I’ve invited a surrogate from the Biden-Harris campaign to speak! The director of the campaign’s NE Florida region has already agreed to appear, and he is also looking into getting someone with an even higher profile as well. After the surrogate speaks, we’ll highlight the array of volunteer opportunities, resources, and tools to get EVERYONE engaged in getting out the vote.
The bigger the crowd we can assemble, the more likely it is we’ll get someone with strong name recognition and the more impact we’ll have. So I’m asking each of you to do all you can to promote the event to your memberships – via social media, email newsletters, texting etc. We want to get at least 500 participants!
Time is short — the event is scheduled for TODAY, so we’ll need to start pushing it out there immediately. It’s on Sunday evening Sept. 13th at 7 PM via Zoom. Here is the link where people need to sign up (and don’t forget to sign yourselves up too!):
