After a much deserved vacation, Joyce and I regrouped to brainstorm over ways to engage the community in our last couple of weeks. We struck gold last week with our Pitt County Coalition meeting where Dr.Powers ( the best Sociology professor) was able to link us with the Interfaith Alliance director to get more faith centers involved with our ‘Souls to the Polls’ event. Also, Pastor Coles updated me on the status of my interview that will be available on DVD. ( I’m hitting Hollywood hard!) After I receive the copy of the DVD, I will load it on the democracy-nc.org website to grace you all with my spectacular interviewing skills. On Tuesday, we met with Rev. Moore who was able to fit us in his busy schedule ( by busy schedule, I mean we had to sit in on all his phone calls) and he discussed with us ways to get Beaufort County on the right direction towards a successful voter turn out this November.
We have scheduled a voter training schedule with Jovenes Lations en Accion where most of the teens are eligible to pre-regrister. On a even more successful note, I got a warm reception from the Minority Voice organization that will allow us to add an article on Democracy NC and a possible interview.
Tomorrow we will be over in Wilson at the African American Family Day Festival, where we will have a booth to register new voters and talk to people about Dem NC, voting, and much more!!!!
