Canvassing for Change

Nov 25 2018

Campaigns are won on the ground – at the doorstep and on the phone. Paid ads and social media posts can be part of an effective election campaign, and no one ever won a contested campaign without talking directly to voters.

Canvassing for Change applies principles of community organizing to build large volunteer canvassing teams. Building off of best practices from the last 10 years of US Democrat campaigns, and field-tested and refined by progressives in Canada, Canvassing for Change teaches the practical and hands on skills needed to win.

In this interactive presentation, George Marshall will unpack the insights and perspectives of the Alberta Narratives Project – a year-long initiative involving nearly 500 Albertans to uncover new ways of talking about climate and energy in our province that are built on common ground and respect for different ways of seeing the world.
