Organized by Real Women Radio & Real Women Radio Foundation, #BeTheChangeVOTE works with local community leaders and organizations to educate and register people to vote. Together with our partners, #BeTheChangeVOTE is creating a new culture of civic engagement rooted in education. In 2020, #VoteTogether is working with community leaders and organizations to host non-partisan, family-friendly, and community-driven #BeTheChangeVOTE campaigns and events. The events are focused on fun for everyone!
In 2016 and 2018 we wanted to make a positive impact on our community and launched the #BeTheChangeVOTE campaign.
We had 3 goals in mind:
1. ) Educate voters on the importance of voting
2.) Increase election turn out
3.) Educate voters on all candidates running for office
The #BeTheChange Volunteer Program:
YOU are the best person to have a conversation with your friends, family, neighbors, classmates, and colleagues about registering and getting out to vote. They trust you, they know you, and each conversation you have with someone you know is more effective than hearing from any other messenger.
What Is A #BeTheChangeVOTE Agent of Change?
A #BeTheChangeVOTE Agent of Change is a volunteer team of at least 3 people that works together to help register friends, family, neighbors, coworkers—any eligible voter in your community.
Every Squad needs a Captain. #BeTheChangeVOTE Agents of Change are volunteer leaders that build and lead a team, commit, and hold their group accountable for completing one action every month. As a #BeTheChangeVOTE Agent of Change, you will have the opportunity to:
- Be eligible for special events and promotions from RWR Live 365
- Join exclusive training’s and briefings
- Get access to coaching, tools, and resources to build your own squad
- Be a part of a nationwide community of highly motivated organizers working to make sure that everyone participates in our democracy
As a Captain, your squad is yours to shape. Each squad will look and operate a little differently, and that’s okay! You might recruit squad members that all know each other well, or you might bring together individuals from different parts of your life who have never met. The important thing is that you assemble a group of people who are excited about helping more people participate in our democracy and can commit to taking action together on a regular basis. Every squad should take time to get to know each other, set goals and norms together, and have fun!
