Jobs with Justice Pushes Voter Registration

North Texas Jobs with Justice is part of a national 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, and consequently cannot endorse candidates in elections. They can and do, however, push issues and encourage people to vote. As August began, several activities had already taken place.

On KNON radio on August 6, Doug Taylor of the People's Empowerment Project outlined some of the ways that individuals and organizations can join the extraordinary wave of voter registration activities. He is actually available to help groups launch their efforts. For counties outside Dallas, Taylor can recommend the helpful organizations.

Taylor is an expert on electoral work, voter registration, and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts.

For Jobs with Justice, the number one legislative priority is to get the Employee Free Choice Act passed in the next Congress. The act would make it possible to start organizing new unions. If working people expect to see their power increase instead of diminishing, they need to get active as soon as possible.
