Join Super Walk this Saturday in Richland

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

(Sept. 26) — Labor Neighbor, the Washington State Labor Council’s member-to-member political action program, has had a tremendous response to its first two weekends of Super Walks. Hundreds of volunteer union members have convened to spend a few hours on Saturday meeting some of labor’s endorsed candidates, having some fun visiting other union members and talking about this fall’s election, and reconvening with fellow volunteers for a post-walk barbecue.

Many unions were represented at the Super Walk held Sept. 22 in Everett, including a strong contingent of Laborers who hosted.

And this Saturday, the Super Walks come to Richland. Plus, Labor Neighbor continues to conduct weeknight phone banks across the state — including at your home or office, if you like. So please join us!

VOLUNTEER! See the full Labor Neighbor calendar for a list of all of the weekday phone bank opportunities and Super Walks in your area. Phone bank volunteers can call from anywhere. If you have a computer and phone available at your office/home, you can participate in phone banking remotely via a virtual predictive dialing system. Click here to RSVP to volunteer, or contact Lori Province for more information via email or at 206-351-2956.

WSLC Field Mobilization Director Lori Province conducts a training session before sending Everett volunteers out for their Sept. 22 Super Walk.

Labor Neighbor’s plan for the general election is to conduct fewer, but more intense “Super Walks” in targeted districts — and then have a BBQ. These Super Walks are being held each Saturday through Oct. 20. Every volunteer shift is from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with snacks/training/pair up at 9:30 a.m., first knock at 10:30 a.m., last knock at 2:30 p.m., and debrief and a BBQ at 3 p.m.

The date and location for the walk this Saturday, Sept. 29 is:

RICHLAND — Laborers 348 Hall — 2515 Duportail St.

Labor Neighbor is the Washington State Labor Council’s grassroots union member-to-member political education program. Its volunteers made nearly 130,000 phone calls and knocked on more than 5,000 doors in the primary season. These volunteers explained to fellow union members which candidates support strong working families, a secure middle class, and a better future for our children.

With just six weeks until this year’s critically important election, volunteers are needed to sign up for Labor Neighbor shifts!
