Zombies, voter guides, and phone calls, oh-my.

gDSC_0427Scott County KFTC member have been busy lately

gDSC_0413A few days ago, we gathered with Georgetown NAACP and had an evening of voter mobilization calls, calling through a list of 150 people in an evening, and making a plan to distribute 300 print voter guides. 

Last night, our allies in the Georgetown College Sociology Club organized a Social Justice workshop where students got to learn about the work of such campus groups as the Student Abolitionist Movement, Student Women and Gender Society, Campus Spectrum, Georgetown Sustainability Initiative, Ambassadors of Diversity, and Common Ground (Campus Ministry).  

We also passed out voter guides and talked a littlee about KFTC's work.gDSC_0418

After that, seven of us made it over to the zombie Thriller Dance on Main Street and passed out over 900 light-hearted handbills encouraging people to vote and visit KentuckyElection.org Added to the 1,100 handbills we passed out in Lexington a few days earlier and 200 in Madison County,, that's 2,200.  Not bad. gDSC_0440
