Dear Amigos de Casa San José,
This is a quick note to let you know about our 2nd Doorknocking Campaign to take place in East Liberty, following the great success of our first one that took place last Saturday in Beechview. We had enthusiastic feedback from our volunteers about the experience, and more than 100 households responded positively and took our poster to display.
We need your help with Round Two!
Who: People who support immigrants in the Pittsburgh area
What: Saturday door-knocking campaign
When/Where: April 20th 9:30-3:30, starting at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, 116 S Highland Ave.
Training: Tuesday, April 16th at Rodef Shalom (4905 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213) 6-8pm. (For those who weren’t at the previous training session.)
Why: We are looking to begin conversations with neighbors in these two communities with the goal of creating a zone of protection and support for our Latinx immigrant population.
How: Our goal is to get 100 volunteers to knock on doors in the East Liberty neighborhood. Volunteers will knock on doors in pairs, beginning conversations with residents about the Latinos in their communities. After answering any questions they may have, the volunteers will ask the residents to put an 8 by 11 inch poster in their front window that shows the Latinx community passing by that they are in a safe space, and on the back of the poster (inside of the house) has basic Know Your Rights in English and in Spanish.
Perks: Free Casa San José t-shirt! And the warm feeling that comes from helping our neighbors.
