Canvassing and phone bank training

Start: Saturday, April 07, 201812:15 PM

End: Saturday, April 07, 2018 2:00 PM

Join me and other Swing Left volunteers to learn how to talk to voters in this key Swing District. We will cover the basics of voter contact and also some techniques of deep canvassing (helping people change their minds). Then we'll practice what we've learned on each other or, weather permitting, those who wish can do some easy canvassing in pairs (just asking registered Democrats to vote or volunteer).

Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before, we’ll cover everything you need to know. It’s actually really fun once you get going.

If you haven’t heard of it, Swing Left is an online network that helps people find their closest Swing District in Congress and connects them with actionable volunteer opportunities to support progressive candidates in that District. Our goal is simple: to flip the House in the 2018 midterm elections and put a check on the Trump agenda.

The race for the House has already started, and talking to voters in key districts is one of the single most important ways you can make sure we win.
