Were you inspired by what Barack Obama had to say to Democrats in San Diego last month? Have you been amazed by all the grassroots energy behind the Obama campaign in California? Are you captivated by the Illinois Senator and what he's accomplished? And would you now like to get involved?
Well, if you're in Orange County, there are plenty of opportunities coming up for you to get involved!
Tonight at 7:00 PM, we'll be having our Obama OC Countywide Volunteer Meeting. We'll be talking about what we can do here in OC to spread Barack Obama's message of hope, action, and change. And of course, we'll be talking about upcoming actions such as the "Walk for Change" canvasses!
So what can we expect on these canvass walks? Here's how the folks at Obama for America explain it:
Think of a canvass as a neighborhood walk. Canvasses happen when a group of people get together and go door to door to homes and apartments in a selected neighborhood to spread the message about Barack Obama.
Movements are created one person, one house at a time. One or two individuals can canvass an entire neighborhood and build real support for our campaign to change America.
Your goal in the canvass is to make personal connections with other people who might not know as much about Barack Obama. You are the face of the campaign in your community.
So do you want to be the face of the Obama campaign in your community? Do you want to talk to your neighbors about this different kind of campaign? Would you like to make connections with other people in your area who may not know very much about Barack Obama? Well, then June 9 is your chance to walk for change!
