We’re famous! Actually, not really, we were just featured in the Sunday edition of the Washington Daily News. We shared our input of the organization and why we are so active in politics. After our interview the reporter showed us around the newspaper, which is ancient. He showed us where the original papers were printed and the old complex machines. Washington Daily News won a Pulitzer Award for an article about the water in Eastern NC. It was an interesting experience to say the least. Check us out www.wdnweb.com!
Ana and I made this week out “church week”. We started in Greenville with a few churches Ana chose. We were going around doing our “GOTV” work and trying to get partners for the ‘Souls to the Polls’ in November. It was difficult to get a hold of members at a church on a Monday, so we decided to go another day. We had a much better response in Washington. We even landed a meeting a very prominent minister and community leader to discuss GOTV efforts in Washington.
Today (Wednesday) we have our first coalition meeting in Greenville! I hope there’s a good turnout in spite of the weather. We’ll definably keep everyone up to date.
Hope everyone enjoys the lonnng weekend!! I know I will!
Happy 4th Be safe!
Joyce & Ana
