1 . Has CTC’s deep canvassing paused until we can get outdoors?
2. How do we train volunteers and reach voters while the country is on hiatus?
3. How does deep canvassing continue in this current moment?
On April 5th—well into the lockdown—72 people participated in our second round of online story-telling workshops before getting on the phones to brave our new frontier: deep canvassing by phone! Because this election is so important, CTC volunteers began attempting to have the same conversations with swing and infrequent voters we were having at their doors. While we are still experimenting with this technology, volunteers who did get through found there are still some voters who are hungry for conversations.
Austin, a volunteer from California, got into a conversation with a retired police officer who was caring for his ill wife. Using his training, Austin told this voter about the people he loved and got the voter to open up about his own family and talk about how infuriatingly incompetent Trump’s handling of the current crisis is.
There are roughly 200 days left before the election. We can’t afford to take our foot off the gas. Join us for an info session, story-telling workshops, and canvassing opportunities.
