With Election Day rapidly approaching, it's time to make our voices heard, and we strongly encourage volunteers to come out and support our endorsed candidates.
In these difficult times, with constant attacks on workers' rights and union rights, we need to make an extra effort to ensure that we elect candidates who will place the needs of working families first. With each street we canvas and door we knock on, we edge closer towards our goal, and we must not quit until we educate every last union member.
Come November, all eyes will be on New Jersey, as our state could play a pivotal role in flipping the U.S. House. Every vote will count. We have the power to create the fair economy and just society that we deserve. The nation is depending on us and you have an obligation to your sisters and brothers to help inflict change.
Walking door-to-door is key to winning elections. Even with all the new technology that's out there, nothing can replicate the impact of one-on-one conversations. That's why we need you to walk with us every Saturday that you can. Whether you've walked before or this is your first time, your voice is essential to our success.
As we know, there's no such thing as a sure victory. This is why we encourage every affiliated union to provide volunteers to participate in labor walks between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, each Saturday through Election Day. Volunteers should bring their smartphones to utilize MiniVAN, our app-based walk system. Only through the efforts of our volunteers can we realize the strength of our labor movement. Walking together, we will win together!
