So, yesterday, I spent a couple of hours at the Obama for America office down on Florida Avenue near Howard University. My task, along with several wonderful ladies, was to call Obama supporters and ask them to canvass in Virginia this weekend.
In talking with the women I was working with yesterday, I realized how shamefully uninvolved I've been in the past. Some of these women had worked four years ago to elect Kerry-Edwards and, I have no doubt, have been politically active most of their lives.
I was only able to help out for about two and half hours, but it was worth every minute! I plan to go back again either this weekend or next Tuesday (or both!) If you're interested in volunteering for Obama for America, the DC office needs people to make calls, volunteers for canvassing in Virginia, and if you have a laptop, they need folks between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. every evening to do data entry.
The Obama for America office is at 803 Florida Avenue NW, just around the corner from the 930 Club and Howard University. The office is open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday - Friday, 11:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays, and 12:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Sundays.
Did you volunteer yesterday? How did it go?
Don't forget the debate tonight between Biden and Palin. Should be a circus worth watching!
