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. Swing Left Greater Boston is working with Reclaim Our Vote to contact people of color and urge them to check their registration status, re-register and vote. Postcard-writing campaigns are a key part of this process.
Two Options for Hosting Your Reclaim Our Vote Postcards-to-Go Event
- With a coach: Fill out the Host an Event Interest form. A Swing Left Greater Boston volunteer will connect with you to walk you through the process.
- On your own: Follow the Reclaim Our Vote Postcards-to-Go Event Planning Guide. It has step-by-step instructions for obtaining postcards, what supplies to have on hand, and how to run the event.
PLEASE REVIEW the Swing Left Greater Boston COVID-19 Advisory before hosting a virtual postcard event.
