Brooklynites Unite for Change

Black Americans fought hard for the right to vote, and in 2008 we'll need to fight harder than ever to defend that right. This year, you have an amazing opportunity to help -- and get paid for it. How? By becoming a pollworker.

We're joining with CREDO Action to support the "Pollworkers for Democracy" project -- a nonpartisan effort to get more people involved in protecting our elections. After signing up, the folks at CREDO will provide you with information to supplement your pollworker training, and also a system to report and track any problems on and before Election Day.

Your county still needs pollworkers for the November 4th general election. By signing up as a pollworker, you can help make sure every vote is counted. Click here to sign up:

In 2000 and 2004 we saw how efforts to suppress the vote can diminish Black Americans' political voice. As a pollworker, you'll be in the best place to support a fair election.

Thanks and Peace,

-- James, Gabriel, Clarissa, Andre, Kai, and the rest of the team
