Canvassing is back!
August 21 - 9am and noon shifts
We know many volunteers have missed talking to voters door-to-door. Join us for this BRIDGE BUILDING canvass. These are fun canvasses because we're not asking for anything from voters! We want to hear what issues are on their minds.
These conversations help identify Dem voters (there are THOUSANDS of unidentified voters in Dane County) so we can conduct more effective outreach ahead of elections.
As always, training and support will be provided!
Madtown Os reaching out to neighbors in need
Reaching out to communities who are often overlooked in the political process is a crucial step in raising voter engagement and improving political equity. Plus, it's neighborly! That's why the Madtown Os are developing a community partnership with Nehemiah Center for Urban Leadership starting this fall. More specifically, we are looking to mobilize our volunteers to support Nehemiah's relationship with the Allied Wellness Center by launching an ongoing essentials donation drive for our Allied Dunn's Marsh neighbors in need. We'll deliver your contributions of essential items like laundry detergent, rolls of quarters, and bus passes directly to the Allied Wellness Center and they'll distribute them where they're needed most. Keep an eye on this space for ways you can contribute!
Read this article about Gloria at the Allied Wellness Center to learn about the important work she is doing.
