RFK Jr., Rev. Jesse Jackson and Greg Palast - invite your group to co-sponsor
Bobby Kennedy Jr., Rev. Jesse Jackson and I invite you to join us to co-sponsor our voter guide, “Steal Back Your Vote.”
Your organization, group, website, radio program - we need you to add your name, your heart, your effort to prevent a repeat of 2000 and 2004.
Steal Back Your Vote lays out the Six Ways They’re Stealing the Election – and the Seven Ways you can Steal It Back. It’s a 24-page downloadable graphic guide - an investigative comic book. It’s non-partisan, it’s humorous, it’s harrowing and it’s helpful.
And we need your name on it. The non-partisan guide’s initial sponsors include Voto Latino, Operation Rainbow/PUSH, Progressive Magazine and VoteRescue; individual sponsors include troubadour Willie Nelson and Code Pink’s Annie Nelson.
It won't cost your group a dime - but it does require a commitment to get out the word to your members or audience on the practical ways to protect your ballot from the vote-rustlers.
You know Bobby’s work. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. blew the lid off the Theft of 2004 in his masterful Rolling Stone article. Many of you know me for my BBC television report that exposed Katherine Harris' "fake felon purge" of Black citizens in 2000.
Now RFK Jr. and I have teamed up to investigate THE THEFT OF 2008.
We can bring in your group for you gratis thanks the generosity of the Puffin Foundation, The Nation Institute, Threshold Foundation and the Palast Investigative Fund.
Jim Hightower and Air America’s Clout! have joined.
How about YOU?
To sign on as a group or media co-sponsor, we don’t require your money. We do expect your ACTIONS.
Just take these two steps:
Take the ‘toons. Later, we'll send you a link to put on your site to allow your members, readers or listeners to download the guide. For now, they can sign up for its release.
If you can’t officially sponsor, you can still post a page or two from the voter guide comic book.
When we launch in two weeks, we'll send you a link for your site and a note to send to your lists. Your readers/members/listeners can then download the complete guide for a donation of as little as a dollar.
Get informed. Kennedy and I are about to publish our report and put it on the airwaves. Sign up and get the notice- via RSS
or e-mail and you’ll be the first to know when the news breaks.
BROADCASTERS: Pull down our Steal Back Your Vote! video and audio PSAs from the likes of Jim Hightower, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Willie Nelson and Mimi Kennedy and add it to your podcast or radio program.
Individuals: Want to add your name to the project and help us spread the word? Make a tax-deductible donation of at least $100
to sponsor the Steal Back Your Vote site and $500 to sponsor the guide
itself. We'll add your name with gratitude.
Reverend Jackson has asked me to pass on these words: "We've marched too long, worked too hard, and died too young to let them steal our vote. For Dr. King, for Mandela, for Medgar Evers, for Goodman, Chaney and Schwerner - download it and fight back!"
