Lisa Lee, a parent volunteer for Citizens for a Better Greenville, joined the organizing group after they worked with parents to start a support group for families of children with special needs.

"They supported us," said Lisa Lee, talking with PBN News about why she was getting on the road to help get out the vote. "They needed a little extra help so I decided that’s what I needed to be doing."

Pushback Network stresses ongoing, politically conscious base building. It is well established that direct voter contact by neighborhood-based messengers is the most effective tool to persuade and mobilize voters into action. Each PBN State Alliance develops multi-dimensional, multi-constituency, multi-issue strategies that build an on-going progressive, politically conscious base.
