Voter Education

Unifour One educates potential voters on all aspects of voting. This includes:

  • Holding special events to reach and educate 18-35 year old voters.
  • Prepare mailings and public service announcements on the importance of voting.
  • Distributing information on location of polls and hours for voting using posters, newsletters and mailing inserts.
  • Providing model voting machines for mock demonstrations.

Voter Registration

IMG00231-20120502-1141The right of all adult citizens to participate in the affairs of their government is one of the cornerstones of democracy. Perhaps the most fundamental form of participation is the right to vote in free and fair elections. Registering to vote is the responsibility of individuals in the North Carolina. Unifour One aids registration in 31 counties in North Carolina. Those counties include Alexander, Avery, Alamance, Buncombe, Burke, Cabarrus, Caldwell, Catawba, Cleveland, Cumberland, Columbus, Durham, Gaston, Guilford, Iredell, Lincoln, New Hanover, Pitt, Hertford, Martin, McDowell, Mecklenburg, Orange, Rutherford, North Hampton, Pasquotank, Pender, Robeson, Wake, and Wilson.

Get Out The Vote

Get Out The Vote, or GOTV, is the culmination of any organizing campaign. GOTV is the highly organized and targeted process of turning out voters who support the mission of Unifour One and who would otherwise vote without our program. Through non-partisan organizing efforts Unifour One encourage and strengthen civic participation to educate new or infrequent voters on their rights and get them to polls on Election Day. Unifour One uses three techniques for GOTV. They include door-to-door canvasing, phone banking and direct mail.

 

Community Organizing

1000 MAN MARCH SPENCER GARFIELDUnifour One specializes in Community organizing, where we work together in a process where people who live in proximity to each other come together into an organization that acts in their shared self-interest. Unlike those who promote more-consensual community building, community organizers generally assume that social change necessarily involves conflict and social struggle in order to generate collective power for the powerless. A core value of Unifour One is community organizing is to generatedurable power for an organization representing the community, allowing it to influence key decision-makers on a range of community reinvestment. We work to strengthen our communities in North Carolina. We work for people that we serve by saving jobs, saving schools and investing in the best interest of the people by training them to use their voices, because the power of the people in numbers is how victories are won. 

Training

A train-the-trainer model enables experienced personnel to show a less-experienced instructor how to deliver courses, workshops and seminars. Usually, a new instructor first observes a training event led by the course designer or subject-matter expert. A train-the-trainer workshop can build a pool of competent instructors who can then teach the material to other people. Instead of having just one instructor who teaches a course for a long time, you have multiple instructors teaching the same course at the same time. This ensures that employees get timely training to complete tasks according to company policies and procedures.

Here are some potential training sessions:

  • Creating  your Story
  • Communicating an Effective Message
  • Campaign Planning and Timeline
  • Building a Grassroots Base of Support
  • Writing a Script 
  • Earned Media
  • Paid Media and Direct Mail
  • Volunteer Recruitment and Retention
  • Nonpartisan Voter Mobilization
  • Running an Effective Phone Banks and Canvass
  • Nonpartisan Targeting
  • Get-Out-the-Vote
  • Movement Building
