Dear Ms. XXXXX,

It was great to meet with you and the field organizers to discuss community-organizing opportunities with ACORN. Your insights into the Alinsky model and ACORN’s application of its principles in building political and economic power for low and moderate-income families were inspiring.

I would certainly be motivated to develop ACOPN’s programs on a neighborhood basis by my firm belief in every individual's right to participate in and be served by our political system at all levels. My active involvement with New World Coalition and Women’s Awareness at Fitchburg and my summer job with PIRG introduced me to the power of building a sense of political efficacy in a constituency. These experiences will be invaluable to me as a field organizer with ACORN. Furthermore, I am familiar with the rigors of canvassing, so, neighborhood group building through "doorknocking" would not be new to me. The broad range of demands that working in one of ACORN's regional offices provides particularly excites me.

I anticipate your decision within the next two weeks. I am very enthusiastic about joining ACORN and its work to empower low and moderate-income families. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

XXXXXX XXXXXXX
