I attended a marvelous presentation at our condo building last night. It was hosted by the Movement Voter Project which funds local groups across the country. The sole purpose of the organization is to have local residents go into their neighborhoods and register people to vote. The main focus is to register young persons and persons of color who have not been involved in the political process. The data is startling regarding the value of supporting these groups. A political TV add costs one hundred and twenty dollars and loses any effectiveness immediately after being aired. The same amount of money cah hire two community organizers for a year,The groups do not target just the national elections but local ones as well. Supporting this group now gives me hope that this approach is the way to have every vote count, and a significant step to giving the power back to the people. I will support this group financially and will not contribute to any candidate until a nominee is selected.
