The League of Women Voters field support has gone digital! LWVNJ launched a digital platform called OutreachCircle, where people can easily stay connected to League activity and conduct civic education outreach efforts to different communities all from one platform! As we all know, there is so much work to get done, from educating first-time voters to reminding our community members to create their voting plan to working with election officials to instill confidence in our election process. Still, we can’t do this work alone. We need the full force of our all our partners in New Jersey to get this critical work done.
Click here for instructions on how to start using OutreachCircle.
PLEASE NOTE: While there are c3 nonpartisan activities on OutreachCircle, LWVNJ also uses this platform for some of our c4 advocacy actions. Not all OutreachCircle opportunities are appropriate for other organizations. Please evaluate before sharing.
