Last week was an exciting and busy one for us! We launched our vote by mail texting program with more than 150 volunteers who sent 250,000 texts and engaged in nearly 15,000 conversations with voters about mail in ballots and other voting questions. We also opened our postcard store, phone banked, had important conversations at the doors, and continued to build our social media and messaging programs.
Join us! We have opportunities for EVERYONE to make a difference. Check out our events below:
