***THUR MAR 22 at 5:00 PM - 8:00PM " OBAMA & BIDEN - ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA*** PHONE BANK *** " Reach out to voters! Host: MARYANNE LACEY. Some of the most important work we do before Election Day will take place on the phone. That work is already under way -- and you can make a big difference from here in California by having conversations with voters in key states who are undecided about their vote, or aren't sure what's at stake in November. We're holding a phone bank near you in San Diego on Thursday, and we need folks like you to take the lead. It might seem like November won't be here for a while, but the months we have left before Election Day are absolutely critical to the success of this movement. Every vote counts -- and I can tell you that there are a lot of folks who haven't decided to get involved in the work to support the President and Democrats up and down the ballot. Those people need to hear from a supporter like you. It's important work, and it should be fun. Say you'll help out in San Diego on Thursday: http://ca.barackobama...­ Where: Rob's home (San Diego, CA), 4237 Norfolk Terrace, San Diego, CA 92116 Directions: ROB'S Home is in the Kensington area of San Diego, What: Phone bank in San Diego Where: 4237 Norfolk Terrace San Diego, CA 92116 STACY COHEN, California State Field Director, Organizing for America info@barackobama.com
