First Lady Michelle Obama has launched a new grassroots effort called “It Takes One”, which asks everyone to start by committing to doing one thing –you can register one new voter, recruit one more volunteer or bring a friend to the next phone bank you attend.
On July 28,2012 accomplish film and television star Alfre Woodard (a devoted advocate) is teaming up with the Obama campaign, here in Virginia with the “It Takes One” day of action. She will kick off this dynamic campaign in Richmond and Petersburg. Woodard will make a stop at the Obama campaign office at 408 East Main Street Richmond, Virginia. The event time is 11:30 a.m -12 p.m.

One important message that was said in the “It Takes One”video was “That one conversation you have, that one new volunteer you recruit, that could be the difference between waking up on November 7th and feeling the promise of four more years or asking, yourself, could I have done more?’ said First Lady Michelle Obama.
“It Takes One,” a new Obama for America initiative that aims to enlist every supporter nationwide to help continue building the campaign’s grassroots organization between now and November.
First Lady Michelle will lead the “It Takes One” program which is a coordinated effort that includes digital, paid media and grassroots organizing components. Mrs. Obama will personally take part in “It Takes One” outreach and grassroots activities, such as building local neighborhood teams.
“Every single person can make a difference in this election and today we’re asking supporters to start by taking one action that will help grow our campaign,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “Help one new voter get registered through www.GottaVote.org, recruit one more volunteer, or bring a friend to the next phone bank you attend. If we all commit to finding at least one way to make an impact, we can ensure that we’ll keep moving this country forward for another four years.”
