On The Wilder Side: ‘Tell everyone to Vote Malik Rahim on Dec 6!’

Published at On The Wilder Side:

ELECTION WEEK What you can do to help

The campaign is shifting to high gear. We have placed 800 lawn signs, 260 t-shirts, expanded our radio ads, and the campaign is featured on three digital billboards. Teams have canvassed uptown and downtown neighborhoods in the district. We have print ads in the Louisiana Weekly (largest Black paper) and Gambit Weekly (arts and entertainment paper), distributed over 17,000 push cards and volunteers continue to distribute literature. Selfless volunteers from around the country are phone banking to bring Malik’s message of hope and progressive social change to the District’s voters. Despite all of this, Malik is still being ignored or disparaged by the local media.

What we do- what each and every one of us does– in the next five days will decide the election. Please tell everyone you know that there is an election on December 6 and Malik Rahim is the candidate to support!

If you can phone bank from home (if your home is in district or even out of state), please sign up to phone bank at: http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/1488/t/689/signUp.jsp?key=2078
