So, I had this thought the other day: what if we asked every chatty Uber driver about (1) whether they were registered to vote (2) whether they knew anything about Stacey Abrams.
Think about it: if your driver isn’t comfortable discussing politics, they stop chatting with ya (which is what most millennial Uber users prefer, statistically); if they’re civically engaged and want to talk, you just created a canvassing opportunity for the campaign out of thin air.
Here's a sample "script" from one of our brilliant supporters, Constance Raymona, that I like to think of as "The Next 5 Years Convo":
"Have you considered who you're electing as our next Governor? What are your life plans for the next 5 years?"
· For people who have kids in school from Pre-K to College, you can talk about Abrams' education plan.
· For people who are military veterans or taking care of veterans, you can talk her plans for veterans.
· For families who are dealing with thr criminal justice system, you can talk her plans for criminal justice reform.
· For people who are concerned about discrimination and racism throughout the state, you can talk about her plan for diversity + inclusion.
Whatever are people's life plans for the next 5 years, there is a place for them at the table by voting Stacey Abrams for Governor. And the best part is, even if you're not fluent in ALL of Stacey's policies, you can have her website (www.staceyabrams.com) pulled up while you're in the back seat, and refer to it for any areas you need a little brushing up in.
So, that’s my Uber challenge for Millennials this week! Let me know how it goes if you take the plunge.
