BigTent was thrilled to bring back Vote Forward! We welcome Executive Director, Yasmin Radjy to the tent. We will dove into how Vote Forward determines its strategy and how they will help a win for democracy in 2024.

Vote Forward and BigTentUSA are working together to increase civic participation by sending letters to voters. Writing letters to voters is one of the most effective ways to help increase election turnout. And you can do it right from home. Our plan is to send out over 100K letters by October 2024!

Here is a presentation on the impact of letter-writing
