San Francisco Bloggers to Meetup: Canvassing Visi Valley for Prop 8 Repeal Tomorrow

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Seems that a few precincts in San Francisco supported Proposition 8, so some bloggers have been going around town with Equality California to canvass those areas in particular. Tomorrow’s focus is in Visitacion Valley. (If you’re not a blogger already, it takes like five minutes to get started.)

Deets below and right here:

SF Blogger Meetup and Canvass for Repealing Prop 8

Meet all your favorite internet friends in real life and contribute to a great cause!”

As Visi Valley looks on a clear day:

The deets:

You’re invited to join local bloggers for a marriage equality canvass on Saturday, February 13th, from 10am-2:30pm with Equality California.

This is a great opportunity to turn just a few hours of easy work into a huge contribution to the fight for equality. Plus it’s a great excuse to meet and mingle with a crowd of awesome online writers, and learn about some of the work being done to restore marriage equality!

What’s a canvass, you ask? We pick neighborhoods that voted majority Yes on 8 to go door to door and talk to people about marriage equality. We start out with a really thorough training and chance to practice, so you’ll learn how to have non-confrontational but productive conversations that will change people’s minds about marriage equality. You’ll go out in teams of two to knock doors for a couple hours, and then we’ll meet up at the end to talk about how it went.

Please come a few minutes early so that we can start on time. After we canvass, we’ll debrief and wrap up by 2:30pm. Bloggers are invited to stick around longer for a special debrief and chance to network with other bloggers.

And of course, your readers and friends are invited to come too — please feel free to post the details on your blog beforehand. The more the merrier!

And you can follow along on Twitter with hashtag #eqwalk.

Just RSVP and let us know if you can make it. We’ll send you the details on when and where to meet. Hope to see you there!
