In the spring of 2014, TRAMUTOLA hired TOLA alumni members and others, to coordinate collecting postcards from SF voters in support of the Mayor’s Minimum Wage campaign. The efforts continued into the late summer when TOLA 6 Fellows concluded the efforts. In the end, 3,500 postcards were collected with most containing email addresses and phone numbers.
The efforts continued as two TOLA 6 fellows helped train Alliance affiliate members to conduct voter contact in support of Proposition J (Minimum Wage) and the David Chiu for State Assembly Campaign. Fellows managed nightly phone banks and weekend mobilizations.
In total, over 10,000 one-on-one conversations were held with voters. The Alliance now has a database of over 8,000 supporters to contact citywide for the 2015 elections.
