A federal election is well underway, and election day is in a little under a month. There is no more critical time for us to mobilize as a community and support candidates from every party who share our values. CJPAC<http://www.cjpac.ca/> (Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee) can help you get involved.
If you could make a commitment to get involved right now, it will ensure our community's voice is heard. Below are a couple of ways you can act and I hope you will commit to at least one of them:
* Volunteer on a campaign: Even just a few hours on a campaign will make an immeasurable difference for our community. If you fill out this form<http://e-activist.com/ea-campaign/clientcampaign.do?ea.client.id=123&ea.cam…> CJPAC will help place you on a campaign of your choosing.
If you have already committed to a campaign, thank you! If you are interested, you can still make a difference by introducing yourself as a representative of CJPAC, and indicate that your help is in part due to the candidate's strong support for our community.
* Spread the word: An election is the perfect time to engage your family, friends, and neighbours in Canadian politics. This is a great opportunity to reach out to politically unengaged community members and volunteer with them. You can also help promote CJPAC's work by sharing our site - www.itsup2you.ca<http://www.itsup2you.ca/> - which is full of information about how to get involved .
It has never been easier, or more important, for our community to be strategically engaged in Canadian politics. Thank you in advance for your help in ensuring our voice is heard.
