 Worker's Voice just launched a Friends and Neighbors tool for online activists.

Want to do your part in getting friends and family out to vote for pro-working family candidates this November? Sign up for the Workers’ Voice Friends and Neighbors (FAN) online social phone bank tool that just launched in seven states: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Massachusetts, Nevada, Ohio and Florida. Visit the website: http://fan.workersvoice.org.

The tool allows activists to match their Facebook friends to the publicly available voter file and begin contacting their targeted friends via phone banks, print mail, e-mail and Facebook, in support of the Labor 2012 program.

Stay tuned for an instructional video next week.
