NY 19 Votes grew from the #Resistance and Indivisible movement after the November election. New and experienced activists alike keep expressing the desire to do everything in their power to turn back Trump and send Faso home. Knowing we need to talk to voters, teach activists how to canvass and do effective outreach NY 19 Votes held it’s first event on March 12th which showed just how powerful our movement is.
Resistance Voter Registration brought together just under 400 volunteers at 12 launch sites across the 19th CD. NY 19 Votes held canvassing workshops and after, on a frigid, windy afternoon volunteers registered voters and petitioned demanding John Faso hold open town halls. Volunteers returned empowered by the experience with one prevailing question: When can we do this again?
NY 19 Votes is uniting #Resistance, Indivisible, SwingLeft and long standing activist groups, Democratic and Working Families Party members and concerned citizens across the district. We know if we are going to turn back Trump, defeat Faso in 2018 and win our country back we have to get out and talk to voters now through election day 2018. NY 19 Votes coordinating, training and deploying volunteers to do just that.
