With two weeks left before the November 8, 2016 election, the activist group known for protesting police violence against African-Americans is hosting the text-a-thon in partnership with Color of Change PAC to inform voters about issues like education, housing, healthcare, employment.

The text-a-thon will be held at the St. Augustine Presbyterian Church at 159 Governor Street in Paterson on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 12 to 3 p.m. Attendees will be served food and provided technology to text voters across the country in real-time.
