Voter Registration/Get Out the Vote is a critical tool for building power to win on issues affecting our communities. This training will teach you how to develop a non-partisan Voter Registration campaign, how to mobilize disenfranchised people to participate in the electoral process and, building upon that pre-work, run a successful and empowering Get Out the Vote campaign.
What people have said about “Building Power to Win”
“It was so inspiring and exciting to hear stories and get ideas based on real voter registration and get out the vote campaigns that have had a major impact. Anyone doing voter registration or get out the vote campaigning or even CONSIDERING doing that should check this out!” (Jeanne Rewa, Terre Haute, IN).
“”Building Power To Win” offers such critical tools for this political moment. As a young organizer, so many of the early campaigns I was a part of struggled to build a long-lasting and powerful base of support. Linda tells inspiring stories about her own experiences in effective base-building that make it clear that building our power to win is possible.” (Jess Grady-Benson, Seattle, WA)
“It’s not very often that you walk out of a training or workshop feeling that both your intellect and emotions were stimulated by the experience you had with your facilitator and other participants. Linda’s workshop provided just that–and in an online setting! A deeper understanding of how to run a GOTV campaign, as well as the impassioned urgency to act.” (Julieta Vitullo, Seattle, WA)

“When I built Piedmont Peace Project, a multi-racial poor people’s organization in 1984, we were able to train around 5000 leaders and to mobilize 44,000 people over a period of five years. Through using the ballot box and holding elected officials accountable, we were able to make dramatic changes. For example, our congressman, who sat on the Defense Appropriations Committee and chaired the New Military Construction Subcommittee, changed his voting record from 0% to 87% on peace issues, and from 33% to 98% on social justice issues. Through empowering low-income people to take on leadership roles, we were awarded the National Grassroots Peace Award.” (Linda Stout, North Carolina)
