Dear Members & Friends,
PFT is supporting “Get Out the Vote” (GOTV) efforts to elect Karen Weinstein to the Peralta Board of Trustees and YES on Prop 55 through Election Day. Karen is in a competitive race and needs our help to win. You can help in these ways:
-Post on social media or send an email to your friends, saying “Vote Karen Weinstein for Peralta Board of Trustees, she will champion community college education.” and check out all the people and organizations who support Karen.
– Phone Banking – every night from 5-8 p.m. RSVP for location.
– Walking: Sat. and Sun. starting at 10:00 a.m. throughout the day from 1971 Shattuck ave, Berkeley. But, we will definitely be dropping info to voters in Oakland.

-Tuesday – Election Day. Volunteers will go out to high turnout precincts to hand out materials or hold up signs. First time to go out is at 7:30 AM.
Visibility is important so if you are willing to hold up a sign at Rockridge Bart or N.Berkeley Bart, just let us know.
