We Count! Launch Party Recap
A huge thanks goes to everyone who helped make the We Count! Launch party a success! About 60 people, including some of Georgia WAND's strongest GOTV members and activists, attended the event at Manuel's where we kicked off the We Count! political empowerment campaign to start building momentum toward the 2012 election. Georgia WAND was excited to introduce our new We Count! Outreach Director, Carolyn Rodriguez-Monden. Members from 9 to 5 Atlanta, the Younger Women's Task Force, Georgia Rural Urban Summit, League of Women Voters, Georgia Win List, Mentor Walk Georgia, Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, Asian American Legal Advocacy Center and Be Present Inc. came to speak about their organizations and strategize a collective plan to get out the vote in 2012 and help build a more progressive Georgia. In addition, guests pledged to vote on November 6, 2012. Check out photos from the event below.
