Alexandria Anti-Eviction Canvass

Start: Sunday, February 20, 202211:30 AM

Join the NoVA tenant organizers and Stomp Out Slumlords for an anti-eviction canvass on Sunday, February 20.

More than 40 families are scheduled for eviction in Alexandria, VA, over the next thirty days. Help our team connect tenants with the resources they need to fight unjust evictions! Your participation will strengthen our organizing—in several buildings we'll visit, we're already working with tenants to fight for safe and clean housing, and we need to connect the tenants facing eviction with their neighbors.

Our meeting point is in the parking lot outside Shooter McGee's at 11:30, from which we'll go in pairs to knock on doors in nearby apartment complexes. Look for a group holding clipboards.

This event is beginner-friendly: we will open with a training on how to talk to people at doors, and we try to match less and more experienced canvassers in pairs. Wear comfortable shoes. While car access is helpful for moving around suburban Virginia, contact us if you need help with transportation. There will also be a(n optional) recap over drink/snacks afterwards, where we'll talk about how it went.
