Chapter Meeting, August 17, 2022, at 6:30 pm

~ Presentation from National NOW ~

During this training, you will be signed up with NOW PAC x Vote Forward’s partner page, learn how to create an effective message, and become accustomed with Vote Forward’s mailing process. With the power of our grassroots membership, we can encourage political participation to create a system that works for US. Join us in creating political power, one story at a time.

Our Presenter

Jessica Taddeo is a full-time student studying political science, philosophy, and modern dance at Roger Williams University. She serves as the Field Coordinator at the National Action Center of NOW, the President of the College Democrats at Roger Williams University, and formerly served as the Political Director of the College Democrats of Rhode Island. Since she was fifteen years old, she has had the pleasure and privilege to work in politics and advocacy, applying an intersectional feminist, leftist, humanistic lens to the field. 

 

Jessica is spearheading a partnership between NOW PAC and Vote Forward, a non-partisan GOTV effort focusing on battleground states and underrepresented portions of the electorate. Since 2018, 240,000 volunteers with Vote Forward wrote 26 million letters to people across the country telling their stories of why they vote. Not who they voted for, or what party they are a part of, but rather what political participation means to them, and how a better future is possible because of it. 

RSVP here to join the discussion and get active in the upcoming primary.
