Please join us to make calls – it’s easy, fun, rewarding, and you’ll get to meet like-minded community members. You don’t need to know everything about the campaign or be an issue expert to make a huge difference.WHAT TO BRING: A laptop is required to use our phone banking system (bring your charger). We highly recommend headphones. You can make calls from your laptop and smartphone, so please bring both. Don’t forget to invite a friend.CANVASSING: Real change requires a bit more effort, and nothing beats face-to-face voter contact for letting people know about Alison Hartson. Alison won’t be able to outspend her opponents but she can win…. WE can win by having meaningful conversations with democratic voters at their own doorsteps. The script, maps, and detailed instructions will be provided, and we’ll pair you up with an experienced canvasser before you knock your first door.WHAT TO BRING: A smartphone is highly recommended (bring your phone charger). If you have a clipboard and pens, please bring that and a friend or two. We also recommend wearing comfortable shoes, sunblock, and a hat. Pay attention to the weather before our event so that you can adjust accordingly.
