Later today, the Brooklyn Democratic Party will be putting “boots on the ground” to mobilize their multiple local club network of volunteers to boost vaccine participation in numerous neighborhoods. Using a live informational Zoom meeting with medical experts, the Brooklyn Dems will enhance the door-to-door volunteers mobilization starting at 7.

“This is grass roots democracy at work, where the rubber meets the road,” said one volunteer. “I am so proud to see our local clubs at work in a great community service.”

The Brooklyn Democratic Party, New York-Presbyterian and Brooklyn Methodist Hospital are informing and mobilizing the community on effective one-to-one neighbor outreach to increase inoculation rates and curb the coronavirus.

The Brooklyn Dems — which is one of the largest and most diverse county parties in the nation — will work with District Leaders (elected leaders who represent each Assembly District in Brooklyn through the Party), and mobilize County Committee Members throughout the borough for a person-to-person campaign to help overcome vaccine hesitancy and protect our neighbors’ health.

One-to-one outreach is currently one of the most effective ways to increase vaccination rates. Amidst the deadly Delta variant, the Party hopes to mobilize its 1.2 million-plus members and the community to increase vaccination rates and help save lives.

Tonight (Wednesday, October 6) at 7 p.m., they are hosting an informational Zoom meeting with five expert medical panelists, open to the community, to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine and how to share information about it with your neighbors.

Speakers at the webinar are Brooklyn Democratic Party Chair Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn, County Committee Chair Arleny Alvarado McCalla, joined by five expert panelists from the Spora Institute at Spora Health, Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, and the New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Attendees have been invited to submit questions and concerns for a Q&A session during the webinar, to help the New York-Presbyterian/Brooklyn Methodist Hospital develop a targeted and effective educational presentation that will help outreach efforts to vulnerable communities.
