Phone banking with the Election Action Team!

Written by Morgan Baker, Jacksonville Media Intern

May has initiated a monstrous force of Get Out The Vote power! Phone banking kicked off on May 5th, with a strong team of 13 volunteers pitching in to call voters and recruit potential volunteers. At the Jacksonville EQFL headquarters, there was a dual phone bank consisting of two separate rooms with two very certain goals. One room was able to make over 120 calls and recruit 12 volunteer shifts.

Volunteer with us at Pensacola PRIDE!
