2014 Municipal Elections Campaign

In the weeks preceding the municipal elections, Kids for Climate Action partnered with the Dogwood Initiative to get people out to vote in the municipal elections. We would call supporters of the Dogwood Initiative who are, for the most part, environmentally inclined, and asking them to pledge to vote in the municipal elections in their home city or town. We would also direct them to a website where they could view the results of a survey sent out to candidates concerning important issues that affect their constituents. On election day, we followed up with those who pledged to vote, making sure that they knew how to get to their polling station and celebrating with them if they did vote. Our 50+ volunteers participated in 9 phone banking sessions, getting over 100 hours of phone calling and reaching over 2000 people to go out and vote!
