Help CANVASS Eureka for Measure R

The Fair Wage Folks will be canvassing Sunday July 27th. Please join us!

 

At 4:00pm, we will meet at the Eureka Labor Temple (840 E Street, where 9th and E meet). We will do some rehearsing and preparation (so don’t worry if you have never gone door-to-door), then hit the streets within about an hour. We will canvass no later than 8:15pm.

We are knocking on peoples’ doors to make sure they know about the Eureka Fair Wage Act, Measure R on the November ballot, and that they are registered to vote in Eureka! And will vote!

Call (707) 442-7465 or email info@fairwages.org if you want more info about Sunday (and future) canvassing.

Beginning in August, there will be opportunities and NEED to canvass every day/evening! Please get in contact if you are interested in helping out. We need you! Let’s get out the vote and raise wages! You do not have to be a Eureka resident to help canvass.

In 6 hours of canvassing, a few of us registered 20 new Eureka City voters! Hundreds of new voters can raise wages and change the political & social landscape of Eureka for the better.

Seeking Space for CAMPAIGN HEADQUARTERS

The Fair Wage Folks need a highly visible office space to use as a Measure R campaign headquarters. We want to rent a place from August through the election in November (about 3 months). A campaign headquarters will allow us a focused space to:

-coordinate CANVASSING of the entire City of Eureka;
-provide a centralized place from which to PHONE BANK;
-be a work space for us to REGISTER VOTERS and get out the vote;
and, perhaps most important,
-be a PUBLIC SPOT where people can drop in and help out, and
-be a visible where people can come in to LEARN AND TALK ABOUT MEASURE R, the Eureka Fair Wage Act.

(After the vote in November, we can plan our victory party from the campaign headquarters!)

IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW HAS A SPACE AVAILABLE (in Eureka, of course), please contact us at:
(707) 442-7465, through a private Facebook Message (https://www.facebook.com/fairwage.folks), or through email at info@fairwages.org

*We are very grateful to have the use PARC (Peoples’ Action for Rights and Community) and the Eureka Labor Temple for our meetings, canvass training, and Fair Wage Cafes. We drafted the Eureka Fair Wage Act at the Labor Temple! Our desire for a campaign headquarters comes from our need for an equipped office and dedicated organizing space that we can use every day until we win the election on November 4, 2014.
