Fight the Good Fight: Join a Campaign
Our campaigns for specific education and justice demands are the heart of our work. The idea is to educate the social, cultural, spiritual, and civic-rights needs of our nation. We need people to help strategize, plan, and implement our campaigns. Our understanding that there is no political solution to the problems our country faces and you do not change people through politics, but you change politics through a change in people, is central to our work and helps decide what campaigns we take on. As we serve we know we must also speak the truth in love. We serve to Restore People, Re-build Dreams, Strengthen the Family, Promote Revival and Equip YOU to cast a smarter vote in line with your values.

When the weather is a bit warmer, we are out hitting the streets talking to new potential members. We also go out to share our newsletter and disseminate other educational literature. Canvassing and distributing information face to face is a beautiful and Godly way to build relationships with people in the neighborhoods. With the weather in NY such as it is we try to be aggressive during this time. The rest of the year, we have other plans to outreach, grow and build our campaigns. Help us share The Frederick Douglass Foundation message and make the voice of the people more powerful.
Our word is our weapon: Our Business is the Message
Our Newsletter, The Drinking Gourd, has got to be one of our major tools for informing and educating our members and community about Gods, word, real news, history, and our on-going work. Once a quarter our newsletter is released. We need people with some mobility to drop off stacks of our newsletter to local coffee shops, book stores, halls, churches, etc. Sometimes we target particular neighborhoods to drop the newsletter door-to-door. Sign up HERE
At Frederick Douglass, we are always giving presentations around town to community groups, policy holders, churches, and other groups about the various campaigns and issues that we work on, see our issues list to see if one fits for you. Are you a practiced public speaker that would like to help us spread the word? Sign up HERE
We’re tired of relying on the drive-by media to get our message out there. With the growth of social media there is no reason that we can’t simply create and distribute our own media. We have to stop complaining that they won’t listen to our side or have us on etc.. We must be the media. Whether you’d like to write for our blog, help push our social media accounts, help edit the Drinking Gourd or help us put together a TV show, this is where you need to be involved. Sign up HERE
Many times throughout the year, FDFNY sends things to our members and allies through email and snail mail. We need to be sending out snail mail to thousands every year. Come gather up with some friendly activists for great conversation and stuffing envelopes. Sign up HERE
We are a volunteer organization and almost totally member-funded. We are not a 501(c)3 but a business, although we run as a non-profit. Our membership dues make nearly everything we do possible. No members, no dues, no activity. But, we can change that and do need to have occasional fundraising events. We also need sales people to help with selling ads in the Drinking Gourd, for the website and blog but also to come up with new fresh ideas. Are you a good at raising funds for the fight for the soul of America? SIGN UP HERE
