Help Get Pro-Choice Candidates Elected in this Fall’s Primaries!

Hi, I’m NARAL Pro-Choice NY’s Fall 2010 Political Intern and I’m excited to work with you all to help elect pro-choice candidates this fall! The Primary Election is fast approaching (September 14, to be exact) and it’s time to kick it into high gear. That’s why I’m issuing a Pro-Choice Primary Challenge.

Here’s the challenge: I’m asking you to commit at least 5 hours to NARAL Pro-Choice New York election activities from now through Primary Day on September 14. The only way to elect the pro-choice leaders we need in New York is to get out there and help take them to victory.

Below is the list of activities that we’ll be holding to educate voters about our endorsed candidates and to get out the pro-choice vote before the Primary. To sign up for specific events, RSVP to Rosie Hoffman at rhoffman@prochoiceny.org. For more information, visit the NARAL Pro-Choice New York website!

Saturday, August 28, 11am-4pm – Canvass (Choice of Manhattan or Brooklyn)

Tuesday, August 31, 5-7pm – Subway visibility (Manhattan)
