YES You Can Be A Member!
The Frederick Douglass Foundation encourages anyone to apply for membership. We do not discriminate based on gender, race, class, economic status, ethnic background, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, cultural and religious backgrounds. Remember Frederick Douglass 2nd wife was was white.
The Frederick Douglass Foundation of NY (FDFNY) is one of the 19 state chapters of The Frederick Douglass Foundation (FDF National).
We address and work within the political system, but are well aware that there is no political solution to many issues our country faces. You do not change people through politics, but you change politics through a change in the hearts of people.

Now, as never before, helping us show strength is vital to preserving our rights. We need your help to support and build strong leaders and help us get our message out!
We are ready to launch several Media Campaigns that will strengthen and enlighten people about the strength and beauty of America, conservative values and rich civil rights legacy of the Republican Party.
If you share our ideas on Freedom for all, limited government, fiscal responsibility & free-market principles you are in the right place. We want to bring ideas and solutions not rehashing the known problems. Help us implement and share solutions we know work as well as coming up with new innovative ideas.
Call Ayesha for full rates and information.
05/ Hit the Streets: Canvassing and Community Outreach
We are out hitting the streets talking to new potential members. We also go out to share our newsletter and disseminate other educational literature. Voter outreach, registration, and handing out voter guides.
Canvassing and distributing information face-to-face is a beautiful and Godly way to build relationships with people in the neighborhoods.

Are you a practiced public speaker that would like to help us spread the word?

07/ Take To the Waves: Media Team
We’re tired of relying on the drive-by media to get our message out. With the growth of social media, there is no reason why 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.
08/ Spread the Word: Assemble Mailings to Community and Members
Many times throughout the year, FDFNY sends items 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.
09/ Join the Legislative Team
Lobbying! Hall walking! The heart and soul of getting things done. We need leaders to help take groups of people to their local representative’s office, to meetings (school board, city council, Legislative, etc) to head to Albany and sometimes D.C. We need YOU, the everyday person to join in speaking to their legislator.
10/ Behind the Scenes: Research
Where the magic is done. Oh man, there is so much behind the scenes that has to get done, from researching bills, crafting position papers, fundraising, data entry, website work, getting people where they need to be and so much more. If you have a passion for one of these things or simply do not like being front and center BUT still want to be involved. We got you!
