GNPS ANNOUNCEMENTS

GNPS Statement on Black Lives Matter
 
As a result of discussions with our members, the Board of Directors of GNPS has understood the depth of our shared commitment to the principles of equal justice and equal access that the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted. We wanted to go beyond making a simple statement of support and have sought concrete actions we could take.  
 
For those who wish to help, the GNPS Advocacy Committee has suggested volunteering with a project of the Center for Common Ground called Reclaim Our Vote (ROV), to directly address the issue of Black voter suppression.  ROV is dedicated to empowering under-represented voters in communities of color by increasing voter registration and reducing the barriers to voting. Reclaim Our Vote is a non-partisan effort, and they provide online training and supporting materials.  
 
For more information, view the Reclaim Our Vote website.
 
Other Opportunities to Work on Voter Suppression
 
If you are interested in volunteering with other local organizations working to register new or disenfranchised voters please check out:

The NYC chapter of League of Women Voters: https://my.lwv.org/new-york/city-new-york, and click on their volunteer activities link.
 
Water for Grassroots: https://getorganizedbk.org/water-for-grassroots/ which is a group of our own Get Organized Brooklyn organization.
 
Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Member Outreach Survey


During this very stressful time, Good Neighbors of Park Slope has been trying to create an organization through which we can support and communicate with each other.  In order to find out more about how we can accomplish this, we would like to speak with all of our members to hear what you think about what we are doing.


Sometime soon someone will be calling to speak with you. This survey should take about 10 minutes. We hope you will be willing to participate, to help us create an organization that is the best that we can be.


While we would prefer to speak with you on the phone, you can submit the survey through the link below, if you would prefer to answer the questions that way.


Our plan is to complete this survey before the Annual Meeting which will be held at the end of October.
