The BCBP has entered into a joint advocacy together with the Commission on Elections and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting for the 2010 elections. The MOA with the COMELEC and PPCRV tasks the BCBP to take the lead in conceptualizing and producing communications materials for voter education and dissemination of the campaign materials and messages to the public.

The campaign targets to educate voters to choose their leaders well and to make sure that their votes are counted. This is summarized in the compelling slogan: BUMOTO NG TAPAT, BUMOTO NG NARARAPAT!

For the BCBP community, the first activity will be held simultaneously after the First Friday mass, Feb. 5, in all chapters and outreaches nationwide. It will consist of a power point presentation of the communications campaign. Then on Feb 19 in lieu of the February Chapter Assembly, there will be a “call to arms” to rally all BCBP members nationwide to distribute the campaign materials in their final form ready for external distribution to their targeted recipients, the parishes and schools in their respective geographic areas.

The announcement of the Joint 2010 Election Advocacy with Comelec and PPCRV follows.

RE : JOINT 2010 ELECTION ADVOCACY WITH COMELEC & PPCRV

Peace in our Lord Jesus Christ!

The coming 2010 National and Local elections once again calls on our citizens to exercise their sovereign right to choose the leaders who will move the nation and their respective communities forward. And once again the BCBP as a catalyst in nation building has been called to be part of the effort to ensure clean, honest and free elections.

Thus, the BCBP has entered into a joint advocacy together with the Commission on Elections and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting for the 2010 elections. The MOA with the COMELEC and PPCRV tasks the BCBP to take the lead in conceptualizing and producing communications materials for voter education and dissemination of the campaign materials and messages to the public.

Specifically, the communications campaign should educate voters to choose their leaders well and to make sure that their votes are counted. Thus, the joint communications program which has been approved for roll-out during the election campaign period carries the call to action that summarizes the advocacy campaign objectives in a most compelling slogan: BUMOTO NG TAPAT, BUMOTO NG NARARAPAT!

The campaign materials were conceptualized by a task force composed of BCBP members working in close coordination with PPCRV Chair Ambassador Henrietta T. de Villa.

The campaign slogan will see first light during the PPCRV Voter Education workshops which commences on February 3 with a seminar for all PPCRV Luzon volunteers and thereafter to all PPCRV Visayas and Mindanao volunteers. A power point presentation of the communications plan and communications materials will be presented during that event.

For the BCBP community, the roll-out comes in two phases– the first activity to be held simultaneously on Friday, February 5, 2010 will consist of a power point presentation of the communications campaign after the First Friday mass in all our Chapters and Outreaches nationwide.

The second activity, which will be held on Friday, Feb. 19, 2010 in lieu of the February Chapter Assembly will be a “call to arms” to rally our members in all our BCBP Chapters and Outreaches to distribute the campaign materials in their final form ready for external distribution to their targeted recipients, the parishes and schools in their respective geographic areas.

We enjoin everyone to support this important undertaking by ensuring that our BCBP members are actively engaged in this joint advocacy of our community to ensure the desired enlightenment and conscientization of our citizenry for the forthcoming 2010 national elections. God bless the BCBP!
