U.S : LAST 24 HOURS : A final ask for support in St. Louis elections.

Voting While Black

Dear friend,

Bob McCulloch-- the St. Louis prosecutor who denied Mike Brown in Ferguson and so many others justice-- has raised 6 times as much money as our endorsed candidate for criminal justice reform, Wesley Bell.1

Election Day is tomorrow- we only have 24 hours left to rally St. Louis County voters and turn the tides. Can you donate $4 to our urgent, final push through election day in St. Louis ?

Here’s what Wesley Bell is up against :1,2

  • At the end of June, McCulloch reported that he had fundraised nearly $250,000-- 6x as much as Wesley Bell

  • McCulloch has the endorsement of every living former police chief in St. Louis County, and multiple police officers associations

  • Bob McCulloch has been in office for 27 years, and has deeply entrenched support from conservative, “tough on crime” voters3

    This final day is our last huge push ! Invest $4 today to help make sure our work to say #ByeBob and elect Wesley Bell pays off.

    I want to lift up the work of our amazing campaign team in St. Louis County, who have been going door-to-door for over a month, getting the word out about Wesley Bell.We’ve talked to hundreds of voters, have texted thousands more, and are running digital ads being seen by tens of thousands.

    I know that Black people in St. Louis County see that Bob McCulloch needs to go because so many amazing community members have volunteered their time to support Wesley Bell with us. We’ve had themed volunteer nights where Black sororities like Alpha Kappa Alpha have brought out their sisters to door-knock. We’ve had youth nights where high schoolers, the next generation of voters, have come out with us. Without this powerful group of volunteers, there’s no way we could have done all this work, and we’re going to need to ask them to give all they have today and at the polls tomorrow.

    The most important thing you can do in this last 24 hours to provide love and support to our campaigners and volunteers is donate. Invest $4 today to :

    1. Take care of our canvassers as they talk to 100s of voters - food, water, and other necessities
    2. Print yard signs for people to put up, and flyers to hand out to 1000s of voters as they arrive at the polls tomorrow
    3. Continue to run digital ads and videos to ensure as many people as possible hear about Wesley Bell before election day

      We never expected the fight to boot Bob McCulloch to be easy. But if we as Color Of Change PAC members all reach deep and give what we can today, we can come out tomorrow with hope for changing criminal justice for thousands of Black people in St. Louis County.

      Please reach deep and give $4, or whatever you can, to help us pull out a win for Wesley Bell and Black people in St. Louis County in these last 24 hours.

      Until justice is real,

      Jenni, Arisha, Hope, Kwesi, Shannon, Alicia P., Victoria, Bhavik, Alicia W., Sonya, Jorge, Reagan, Daniel, Charles, Bradley, Scott and the Color Of Change PAC team
