League of Women's Voters & TTN-NYC
TTNer's love to volunteer. That's 60% of us to be exact in the NYC chapter according to our recent survey. And that includes a number of the members of the Civic Action SIG who work frequently with the League of Women's Voters (LWV)....and eight women in particular but we're getting ahead of ourselves.
That's Amy Epstein (left) and Linda Marcus (right) with
another LWV volunteer on a city street with clipboards.
Can you tell they are registering voters? Probably not,
no one else could either. The only signage was a small
LWV sticker they wore on their chest! After several
unsuccessful attempts trying to engage people in order
to register them, our TTNers suggested that perhaps the
LWV needed better “street presence.”
So talented Amy designed a tee shirt with the LWV logo that would solve this perdicament and raised the money to
produce a supply of them from other involved SIG members.
And because the League can sell the shirts, it also provides a source of income for them.
LWV volunteers registering New Yorkers on the street can
now be better identified wearing our tee shirts. TTNers
volunteering for voter registration, be sure to ask the LWV
for a shirt. This is how we roll at TTN-NYC, bringing
women together to take action where it is needed. Thanks
to Amy and Harriet Mayer, Freda Johnson, Pamela Roderick,
Bobby Rose, Linda Paige Levine, Barbara Zwiebel and
And remember to Vote! Louder!
