June Brooklyn (1, 2E, 2W & 3) Neighborhood Groups: #JewsForEon Bed-Stuy canvass & hangout

At JFREJ’s June Neighborhood Groups meetings, we’re going to get out the vote! This is a chance to build community, learn about the stakes of this election, and get trained in a foundational element of organizing – canvassing and phonebanking. Join all 4 Brooklyn Neighborhood Groups to door-knock for Eon Huntley, a TJV-endorsed candidate running for State Assembly to represent Bed-Stuy and parts of Crown Heights.

The Brooklyn neighborhood groups are opting for a virtual option and one in-person option -- feel free to join any and all if you're interested! [This page is the sign-up for our in-person option. You can find details & RSVP here for the #JewsForJamaal virtual phonebank on Thursday 6/20.]

What to expect at our Sunday, June 23rd meeting:

  • We'll meet outside Eon's campaign office, and find each other to sync up.
  • First, there will be a short rally (with special appearance from TJV-endorsed State Senator Jabari Brisport!) to get our energy up, talk about the stakes of the race, and learn a little more about the Not On Our Dime! Act, a bill that JFREJ, Jabari Brisport, and Eon Huntley all support.
  • Next, we'll get trained on how to have a persuasive conversation with a voter, ask and answer questions about issues that might come up in the neighborhood, and practice using the canvassing mobile app.
  • Then, we'll head out in pairs, and knock doors! (note: this is the one part of the event with some indoor interaction, where we can stay masked while having a 2-3 minute conversation at someone's door. There can be an all-outdoors option if needed, let us know in the RSVP form.)
  • Social time & Debrief: we'll come back together at the end to debrief as a team, share any funny stories, and learn from each other's experiences, likely over food or drinks at a local restaurant or park with outdoor seating options.

Please bring a fully charged cell phone and a mask, and wear any JFREJ gear you have!

Note: this is not exclusive to neighborhood group members, so feel free to invite your friends to RSVP and join.
