LETTER WRITING MAKES A DIFFERENCE

In case you don’t think letter writing makes a difference, here is an excerpt from a note from a letter recipient to one of our volunteers…

” I want to let you know I have been bombarded with political mail, fliers, advertisements, commercials to the point where I cannot stand it.  HOWEVER, your taking the time and effort to write a personal note has impressed and touched me.  You are making a difference.  I’ve read and reread your note.  Thank you for taking that effort…..
“Sorry, I’ve gotten way off track.  But, like you, I am passionate.  I will vote.  Have no fear of that.  Not only do I thank you for writing your wonderful note, but I also want to thank you for alerting me to NCWM which is an organization that has a real appeal to me.
Thank you for caring enough to do what you do.  Bad things happen when good people do nothing.”

If you haven’t already, please VOLUNTEER and make a difference.  Time is short.  Volunteer now.

Bennett III Update

The plans are coming together for Bennett III: Issues and Actions on July 26 in Greensboro. Before you come, it would be great if you could give some thought to 3 topics that we will explore at the conference.
1) What would a truly comprehensive, progressive women’s movement in North Carolina look like and what steps do you think can be taken to get us there?
2) What resources does my organization have that would be helpful in educating women and getting out the female vote this mid-term election in November?
3) What kinds of strategies or tactics have you participated in or seen work to engage women and get them to vote?

The day will start with registration and a continental breakfast at 8:30. The program will start at 9:00 sharp and conclude no later than 4:30. There will be a table set for you to bring materials from your organization that you want to share. Also, if you have a book or two that you think others may be interested in reading, bring that along as well.
The program will emphasize making the connection between the economy and critical women’s issues. It will focus on how we can work together to build collaborative efforts in our own communities to educate women and get out the female vote in November.
The day promises to be fast-paced and open enough to connect with new people and network with other dynamic and committed women.
