The North Carolina NAACP and Democracy North Carolina invite your faith center to join hundreds of others across North Carolina in an unprecedented faith-based, non-partisan Souls to the Polls voter engagement campaign as part of the state-wide It's Our Time, It's Our Vote GOTV campaign in 2016. At 1:30 p.m. on February 13th, following the Moral March on Raleigh & HKonJ People's Assembly, we will train people on how to become "Faith Ambassadors" and lead voter registration, education, mobilization, and protection campaigns in their faith centers. You will be sent the training location after you register. It will be in walking distance from the Moral March on Raleigh.
