It's A Day On, Not A Day Off

Colette C. was honored to help register voters at the MLK Day Parade in St. Louis.

Missourians celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day across the state by commemorating his life through memorial services, prayer breakfasts, assemblies, community service events, and parades. In St. Louis, OFA-Missouri volunteers were honored to spend part of their day commemorating Dr. King’s legacy by registering voters.

One of those volunteers was Colette C. who stood with other OFA volunteers on the parade route with a clip board, I’m In pledge cards, and voter registration cards.

“I’m here today because it’s a day on, not a day off. I work at a university and I tell my students all the time, if you’re going to really celebrate the man, then celebrate the man the way he would want to be celebrated: by working for your community.”

Colette is a big supporter of President Obama. She volunteered with OFA-Missouri during the 2008 campaign as a canvasser and is anxious to expand her contributions during the 2012 campaign.

“I really want to help get President Obama re-elected. When an email invitation to help register voters came I though it sounded perfect. So, here I am!”

MLK Day parade goers take time to register to vote via OFA-Missouri volunteers.

Join Colette and other Obama supporters at an upcoming OFA-Missouri campaign event.
