Win Justice Knocks on Over 1.5 Million Doors, Engages 4 Million Floridians Heading into Election DayNovember 5, 2018Press Release
Heading into Election Day, the Win Justice coalition surpassed 1.5 million in-person door knocks of infrequent voters in black and latinx communities - resulting in over 260,000 conversations - across ten counties in Florida. Their texting program has surpassed one million messages. At the doors, by phone, text, and their digital program, Win Justice has engaged more than 4 million Floridians statewide.
A dedicated group of active and retired healthcare professionals, public employees and property service workers in Florida who have taken a leave of absence from their jobs for the last two months are doubling down on their get out the vote efforts in the final days of the 2018 Election. These members, some of the 55,000 represented by SEIU Florida, one of the state’s largest unions, have been running voter outreach efforts among fellow union members and working families across the state.
For working families trying to pay for rent and other necessities, the new $8.46 Florida minimum wage announced this week (effective January 1, 2019) falls far short, according to one of the state’s largest unions.
The Win Justice coalition surpassed over one million door knocks this week through a seven figure statewide canvass operation, signifying one of the largest get out the vote canvass effort in the state. Their goal is to exceed 1.3 million door knocks by Election Day. Through phone calls, texting, and online paid digital programs, the coalition has engaged with well over two million Floridians. The coalition is encouraging voters to vote for Andrew Gillum, Bill Nelson, Amendment 4 and a progressive ticket down the ballot.
