Florida - 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.
Going into Election Day, their year long effort has resulted in nearly 330,000 people within a 1.2 million low propensity voter universe casting a ballot through early voting and vote by mail. Win Justice also signed up over 17,000 Floridians for vote by mail ballots.
The Win Justice coalition includes Florida Planned Parenthood PAC, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Florida, Center for Community Change Action (CCCA), Color of Change PAC, New Florida Majority, Organize Florida, and Florida Immigrant Coalition Votes (FLIC Votes).
The Win Justice coalition is getting out the vote for statewide candidates including Andrew Gillum, Bill Nelson, and nearly 70 down ballot races across the state. They are also supporting a yes on Amendment 4 campaign and no on Amendments 1 and 5.
The Win Justice coalition, which represents over 100,000 members statewide, has been organizing in communities across the state for over a decade. The program has nearly 1,600 staff and paid canvassers across 22 offices and thousands of volunteers turning out to help get out the vote.
"We know infrequent voters will be the deciding factor in this election," said Melissa Morales, Executive Director of SEIU Florida and Campaign Manager for Win Justice Florida."It is no secret that when you see a higher turn out in black and latinx communities - and women - we elect more progressives to office. We saw that on the night of our primary election and we hope to see that at the culmination of this election tomorrow."
