Phone banks are back to get Underly elected!
Direct voter contact can move the needle 2.5% in an election - that could make the difference in low-turnout races like this one. Volunteer outreach is crucial!

These phone banks will target strong/likely Dems and encourage them to vote in the Spring Election to support Jill Underly, the State Superintendent of Schools candidate who will best support public education and making Wisconsin schools more equitable.
We'll also be calling into Senate District 13 to support Melissa Winker's campaign to win Fitzgerald's former seat! A special election like hers is the BEST opportunity to flip this gerrymandered seat BLUE.
All phone banking will continue to be 100% virtual so you can make calls from your couch! Training will be provided at every shift.
The more the merrier...please invite 5 friends to call with you!
