Our Goal: Building the resources to help libraries succeed at the ballot box
We are raising funds to begin the process of hiring the talented political consultants we need to create campaign-messaging about libraries, conduct voter segmentation and modeling, and build the toolkits we need to begin successfully support ballot initiatives in the 2013 off-cycle state and municipal elections. Your donations will help EveryLibrary bring in the best and the brightest to help libraries win at the ballot box – affordably.
Make your donation today at www.rally.org/everylibrary. Individuals, corporations, unions, and foundations are encouraged to give.
What happens next?
To be effective, EveryLibrary needs to continue to raise funds beyond our initial goasl. Our effectiveness in changing voter perceptions of libraries and helping to move elections into the “win” column will depend on the sustained support of library professionals, citizens, and allies as well as the corporate, vendor, and labor community who work with libraries every day. We look forward to building the technical resources local ballot committees want and provide the financial support local PACs need to talk effectively about their initiatives. Our long term goal is to collect and disburse funds to local committees for voter education and get-out-the vote initiatives for libraries. Your continued support will be key. Your help sharing the message that any library initiative anywhere matters to every library everywhere will be crucial to the continued relevance of library services in this country.
