Smart Girl Politics Action is proud to announce our largest and most ambitious initiative in our 3-year history. Smart Girls Vote is a women’s voter outreach campaign launching in May in the first of 19 states across the country.
What is Smart Girls Vote?
Smart Girls Vote is a three phase voter outreach initiative geared toward getting more women to not only vote in 2012, but to take an active part in engaging, educating, and empowering their friends and family to do so. The fact is that no candidate can win an election without the women’s vote. Women have out voted men in every election for the last 20 years. Unfortunately, conservative women have allowed their liberal counterparts to hijack the conversation and deflect discussions about real issues. This year, we will not let that happen.
Smart Girls Vote is a comprehensive plan to turnout educated voters. The liberals have been successful in getting their narrative out due to their strength in organization, so we are focusing on organizing within states by Congressional Districts. We need volunteers in Texas to step up as local and district leaders. We have increased our organizational structure to include new field director positions. These positions will directly work with and support State Coordinators, District Coordinators, and volunteers throughout these states.
As we continue through each phase of our plan, we will be training volunteers on voter registration, voter integrity (no more dead people on the rolls), phone banking, GOTV, and canvassing. We will be hosting house parties and small events around the states to educate women on the issues important to our members. This year we are not sitting back and waiting for others to motivate women, we are doing it ourselves.
How can you get involved?
We are looking for district leaders, volunteers, state bloggers, activists, researchers, and more. If you have the time, as little as an hour a week, please email Jennifer Leslie, Smart Girl Politics National Field Director based in New Braunfels, at J.Leslie@smartgirlpolitics.org and state what congressional district and city/town you are in and how you would like to get involved. You can also look at our volunteer opportunities at our website at http://sgpaction.nationbuilder.com/volunteer.
We will be having a casual Meet & Greet in Houston on Friday, April 27th from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Sheraton Houston Brookhollow, in the hotel meeting area Tuxedo’s. Please come by if you are in the area and would like to meet other like minded conservatives!
We are also looking for volunteers in San Antonio to help organize a Health Care Forum with local physicians regarding Obamacare and the long term consequences on our health care.
Thank you so much for your continued support. We are looking forward to working with Texas Smart Girls this year!!!
