Dear PIIN members, supporters and friends:
The presidential election is less than a week away! We all know how important this election is and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that all eligible voters in our congregations and organizations cast a ballot next Tuesday, November 6.
Do you want to make a difference and do your part to make sure that eligible voters in PIIN congregations and organizations go to the polls? If so, we’ve got ways you can help!
Join with us as we rekindle our democracy and our communities!

Join other PIIN leaders as we collectively reach out to hundreds of potential voters and remind them to go to the polls on Tuesday! We’ll remind them to vote, make sure know their polling location and see if they need a ride to the polls.
Join us for the entire time or for as long as you can stay. If you can come, please reply to this email and let us know or call the PIIN office at 412.621.930. That way we can better coordinate our efforts and make sure we have enough food and drinks for everyone.
If you have them, bring your cell phone and laptop with you.
