Introducing 10,000 STRONG

Regardless of the timing of our next municipal elections, ONE Wake is committed to holding our elected officials accountable to address the top pressures facing our communities.

Last week during our Annual Meeting, 297 leaders from over 50 institutions across Wake County gathered to hear the issues shaped by our research action teams and to launch a 10,000 voter power strategy to move our local elected officials and win real change this fall. We're calling this strategy 10,000 STRONG. 

Here's how we're going to do it: this summer every ONE Wake member institution is asked to collect at least 200 pledges from Wake County residents who commit to supporting our grassroots agenda and who also commit to vote in their next municipal election.

Together we can build homes that people can actually afford, form real pathways to better jobs, and ensure equity and opportunity for all of our students. 

Sign up today to join the 10,000 strong, non-partisan voting bloc for ONE Wake's grassroots agenda. Your signature shows your support for our agenda and your commitment to vote in your next municipal election:

Immediate Next Steps 

  1. Send 10 members to relational canvassing training to equip them with skills needed to recruit at least 200 pledges from Wake County voters this summer. Registration is available on our website here

  2. Identify at least one outside community suitable for in-person canvassing. You are looking for neighborhoods, programs, ministries, etc., where your institution has existing relationships.

  3. Register for a mid-summer internal assembly Tuesday July 13 at 7:00 pm to coordinate the launch of in-person canvassing.

Relational Canvassing Equipping Sessions Start Next Week

Join leaders from across Wake County to learn how to use relational canvassing to help build a 10,000 member voting block behind ONE Wake's issue platform this summer in advance of the upcoming municipal elections.

The purpose of this training is to ensure that all ONE Wake leaders are able to communicate clearly, consistently, and effectively about our issue campaigns and our strategies. 

The training will cover: 1) how to make relational phone calls to voters from your institution who are listed in ONE Wake's Empower database; 2) how to have in-person relational conversations at your institution after service or during programs.

Members only need to attend ONE of the sessions. Additional training is available on demand for any institution(s) that can deliver at least 10 members. Contact us at info@onewake to schedule a training at your institution. 

Registration is available on our website here.

Wake Forest Residents: We Need Your Support

ONE Wake members St. John's Episcopal Church and Friendship Chapel Baptist Church have been working closely with neighborhood leaders at the Wellington Park mobile home community in Wake Forest. 

Residents have been meeting regularly since they received news that their mobile home park is under contract to be sold to an out of state developer. The sale, which is contingent on the rezoning of the park, would displace 47 families and would eliminate one of the last affordable communities in town. 

For the last month, residents and supporters have been developing a strategy to save the mobile home park. We are approaching a crucial moment in this campaign and need the support of as many Wake Forest residents as possible.

If you are a resident of Wake Forest and want to help save Wellington Park, please sign up here!
