Nance: “The time is now for women in ‘The Old Dominion State’ to stand up and let their voices be heard.”
Washington, D.C. — Concerned Women for America (CWA) President and CEO Penny Nance announced the launch of She Votes 2012 events in Virginia, beginning Saturday, July 7, part of a million-dollar nationwide campaign to get out the vote in the November general election. The goal is to raise awareness and activism of women in key states resulting in stronger conservative leadership on the state and national level.
“We know when conservatives vote their values, they elect men and women whom CWA and CWA members can work with to see that founding principles are applied and enacted into law,” CWA President and CEO Penny Nance said. “We need conservatives in ‘The Old Dominion State’ to turn out in great numbers in order to get legislation passed that will move our great country back to a secure footing.”
“She Votes 2012 of Southern Virginia is excited to launch our efforts to engage the Commonwealth in practice of their civic duty by registering and educating women about the electoral process,” said CWA Southern Virginia Field Director Andrea Lindsey. “This is a critical election and we need to work hard to elect like-minded conservatives from the state house all the way to the White House.”
The following She Votes 2012 events are scheduled in Virginia:
Saturday, July 7, 2012
9:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. — Ruckersville, VA — She Votes 2012 recruitment, Blue Ridge Grill, 8315 Seminole Trail #5.
Saturday, July 28, 2012
10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. — Roanoke, VA — She Votes 2012 recruitment, Main Library, 2015 Church Ave.
The She Votes 2012 program will work to mobilize members in key states to change the trajectory of our nation through grassroots education and activism. Organizers will focus on three main areas:
Voter registration Voter identification Voter turnout
Field directors will use phone-banks, social media, and public events to encourage voter participation. They will work with state CWA chapters, other organizations, and local churches as they carry out the mission of She Votes 2012.
CWA is the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization and is uniquely positioned to connect with and advocate for women and families. Over the past three decades, CWA has built an effective grassroots network of conservative activists, which includes 500,000 constituents and 600 chapters reaching women, families, and cultural leaders.
