Greetings from the Margins!
It was such a beautiful day after the National API HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, that we decided to go volunteer and help door-knock for President Obama’s Grassroots Campaign.
This was actually Danny K.’s first time out door-knocking, so the lovely Dee L. had the pleasure to train in Danny K. on how to effectively door-knock; and how to make an ask for voters to commit to vote for President Obama on Election Day, November 6, 2012.
Although it was quite hot and humid on that day, we came across a block (across from Central High) that was polluted with garbage from the neighbors. While canvassing, we came across an unused trash bag and decided that we cannot only canvass today, but we needed to be proactive in being GREEN as well. So, we decided to pick up trash and pollutants around the area where we canvassed.
Not only will we leave an impression that we are committed to making change on a national level, but we are also very committed to making sustaining change on a local level as well.
