CAMBRIDGE, MA – Texas Reclaim Our Vote Postcard Party Music + Activism

February 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Voter purging and other forms of voter suppression are taking away the civil rights of people of color who are being put on “inactive” or “unregistered” lists at a 16% higher rate than other voters. Reclaim Our Vote* to contact people of color in Texas and urge them to check their registration status, re-register and vote. Postcard-writing campaigns are a key part of this process.

Please join our group of friendly volunteers as we send notification postcards to voters in communities of color with information on how to check to make sure they haven’t been purged from voter rolls.

Do postcard campaigns work? Reclaim Our Vote has found a 25% increase in voter registration among those people who receive postcards. Texas is known as the “non-voting state.” You can help change that.

We will provide the postcards, address list and a message for you to personalize. We’re asking for your help to defray the printing and mailing costs by bringing $5 for 10 cards. This is your chance to give voters a heads-up so they can protect their voting rights.

RSVP and join us as we stamp out voter suppression for good!

Join us for some postcards, and stay for some rhythm and blues!
