Video: Rev. Jasper Williams Launches the "99 1/2 Won’t Do Project” to Mobilize Churches and Voters
Rev. Jasper Williams says 99 and a half is not enough, we need 100% voter participation.
On August 24th at Salem Bible Church, Rev. Jasper Williams invited a number of Atlanta churches to his church home as he launched the 99 1/2 Won't Do Project.
The project intends to help churches and non-profits organize themselves and have the resources and knowledge necessary to turn out 100% of the African-American vote in Georgia.
Rev. Williams sang the old church song "99 and a Half Won't Do" to get the audience fired up and emotionally behind the message, after that a Power-Point presentation was given that had all the details churches needed.
Details such as what they can and can not do as non-profit organizations and dealing with politics. In addition, a number of stats were handed out to the organizations in attendance as well as key information such as that incarcerated individuals that have yet to be convicted are indeed eligible to vote.
The 3 objectives of the project is to Register Voters, Educate Voters, and to make sure they actually Vote.
There is now just little over a month left before the registration deadline to be able to vote in the upcoming Presidential election between Obama and Romney. If you need more information about your registration status or precinct, you can visit the Secretary of State's website.
