Lean Left’s Action Opportunities
in the Era of Social Distancing
It’s safe to say we’re all staying in a lot more in the name of social distancing and self-isolation. Luckily, Lean Left Vermont’s activism has always included many actions that can be done from the comfort of your own home. Keep your sweats on and commit some of your newly found free time and pent-up activism to helping restore democracy in 2020!
What We’re Working on Now
Our Giving Circles are going STRONG as more and more people realize it’s time to join in the 2020 fight. We’ve raised over $35,000 for our candidates and campaigns! Be a part of this very important effort and CLICK HERE.
Phonebanking is second only to canvassing in terms of effective voter contact. Up your game and attend a training so you can inspire voters to re-register and to get out and vote! Get the info you need HERE.
Textbanking is 100% compatible with social distancing – all you need is a computer, an internet connection, and some time (wine optional) to reach voters all over the country in this critical election year! Two groups that need texting volunteers right now, and consistently have texting opportunities, are MoveOn and Resistance Labs.
- If you’ve never done textbanking before, that’s okay! Start out by reviewing the materials HERE and then sign up with the links below and go through their onboarding process.
- If you are an experienced texter, but haven’t worked with MoveOn or Resistance Labs before, just sign up directly using the links below to get trained up to work with them.
- If you’ve texted with either group before, just head to their Slack workspace — moveontextteam.slack.com and/or resistancelabs.slack.com
