Voter Activation During COVID-19
April 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am CDT
The 18 Coffees monthly breakfast series is back, and this time from the comfort of your own home. This month’s Wake Up Wired focuses on democracy in 2020 and welcomes Erin Hannigan, Managing Director of When We All Vote and Stevie Valles, Executive Director of Chicago Votes, with moderation by Caleb Gardner, Managing Partner of 18 Coffees and former Digital Director of OFA.
Join us on Thursday, April 23, for a virtual panel discussion on voter activation and participation gaps in underrepresented communities. Learn from Erin and Stevie on how their organizations are making strides to close the age and race gaps in voter participation by changing the culture around voting, harnessing grassroots energy, and launching strategic partnerships to reach every eligible voter.
After a dynamic discussion, help us reach potential voters by participating in a virtual #CouchParty led by When We All Vote. Using Outvote, an app that makes it easy to support the causes and campaigns you care about, we’ll be kicking off a mini campaign to do community outreach and help our social circles get registered to vote.
Register, download the texting platform, and get ready for voting season.
