Anthony Thigpenn: “We first start with a motivational education which bring people in. Often times that may be a fairly large meeting in which it’s our members and other organization’s members and we’ll do a PowerPoint presentation, give out educational material about what’s on the ballot, why we should care about it, what it’s impact is going to be on our communities and the issues we care about. So that’s the first step, just educating people on the broad – what’s at stake in this election. We will then do some more specific education around the specific issues that are on the ballot. So there’s a health care initiative, this is what it means, this is who’s for it, this is who’s against it, this is how we think it’ll impact our community. So there’s issue education starting at the big picture and then being very specific about the issues on the ballot.”
