As A. Philip Randolph stated, “Salvation for a race, nation, or class must come from within. Freedom is never granted; it is won. Justice is never given; it is exacted.”
At our training center and at other locations throughout the state we teach canvassing, letter writing, and the use of new information technology such as the Voter Activation Network (VAN) to reach out and educate other voters in their communities, register voters, and increase voter participation. We locate and work with people from the communities that we serve to participate in our get-out-the-vote work. Through our Youth Chapters we accomplish leadership development for our youth. The strategy is to create and atmosphere where the youth could come to with their peers and accomplish work to help out their communities. We teach them canvassing, phone banking and letter writing. Once they reach a certain point we assign them to work with an older person. We start leadership development at an early age.
