Canvassing for Change

Feb 23 2019 - 9:30am to 5:00pm

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.
