Meet our Charlotte canvassing team: Shaun

Where are you from, Shaun?Shaun
I was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, but I grew up in both Charlotte and Miami, FL.

Have you done canvassing before?
No, I have not.

Why do you think voting is important?
Voting is important because many people died attempting to vote. By voting, we become a part of democracy and honor those who have sacrificed so much.

Why can we do to get all voices heard in North Carolina?
Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) is the most efficient and fastest way to reach every voice in the state of North Carolina.

What is the best statement you’ve heard while out canvassing?
“I am really grateful you are doing this!” – said by someone who initially rejected my advances. Also, “I can vote again, woo-hoo!” after telling a convicted felon his rights had been restored.
