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 on March 12th. We banded together activists who had never knocked doors before, and after talking to voters in 10 degree temperatures, volunteers returned asking one thing, 'When can we do this again?' NY19Votes has now put over 1,000 volunteers out on doors, empowered local Indivisible groups to run their own local canvasses and provided training for hundreds of leaders and activists.
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.
