From coast to coast this weekend, tens of thousands of SEIU members will knock on doors, make phone calls and rally behind candidates who will stand up for working men and women. It's all about putting people in office who will make the economy work for all of us, not just the wealthy few.
Between now and Election Day, they'll be joined by SEIU leaders: International President Mary Kay Henry and Executive Vice Presidents Kirk Adams, Gerry Hudson, Valarie Long and Rocio Sáenz, who will lift up events in Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
SEIU members: the work you're doing--making phone calls, knocking on doors, speaking one-on-one to voters--has truly added up. Members have already hit more than 3 million doors and are expected to hit 4+ million doors by Tuesday. Keep up with our progress and SEIU leaders' travels over the weekend and into Tuesday on Facebook.
This Election Day is an opportunity to stand up for the kind of future we want:
- A future where everyone who works hard for a living can support their families without having to live on the brink.
- A future where everyone has access to affordable healthcare thanks to the Affordable Care Act.
- A future where immigrant families can come out of the shadows and into the light of our economy and society.
- A future where there's justice for all--regardless of where you were born or what ZIP code you live in.
If you're canvassing, phone-banking or otherwise working to support candidates who share our vision for the future, thank you.
See you at the polls!
