Friendbank with REACH
Thursday Sept 23, 7pm
Put your REACH training to use right away and practice REACHing out to some folks in your network. Support will be provided so you can get comfortable with the app. This is another way to get involved virtually from home!
Get trained on MiniVAN to step up your canvassing skills
Wednesday Sept 22, 6-7pm
MiniVAN is a convenient app for quickly logging canvass data on your phone as you knock doors! It eliminates the need to carry those paper walk lists that blow around and it prevents wasted time and errors in data entry. We're encouraging canvassers to transition to MiniVAN and supporting you along the way!
No worries if you can't come to one of these trainings. We can quickly train you on the app when you come to canvass!
Saturday Sept 25 at 9am, 12pm, or 3pm
Sunday Sept 26 at 12pm or 3pm
Call voters from home! Virtual training, resources, and support provided.
Chat with voters to identify Dems and find out what issues are most important to them! Calls will help us reach folks who are tougher to reach with canvassing, like residents of apartment complexes.
Canvassing is back!
Sept 25 - 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! *Masks required*
BUS PASS and FUEL CARD DRIVE
Help us help our community!
After a successful spring book drive for students, this month we're raising money to purchase bus passes and fuel cards for neighbors who need them. In partnership with Nehemiah Center for Urban Leadership Development, we will give 100% of donations to the Allied Wellness Center for the purchase of these critical transportation resources. The Allied Wellness Center is located in the Allied Dunn's Marsh neighborhood, a community located in the Madtown Os organizing territory.
Click below to learn more details, see how to donate (in-person, online, and mail options available!), and get contact info for questions you may have.
Read this article about Gloria at the Allied Wellness Center to learn about the important work she is doing.
Thursday Sept 16 or 23, 6-7pm
Relational organizing is working in your own social networks to get voters out and recruit volunteers. REACH is the app for this job! It can also be used during canvassing (or anywhere!) to get voters into our system so they can be mobilized next year to the polls.
RSVP for a virtual training to learn REACH!
Fall Kick-off Gathering and Celebration
