    Phone Bank Trainings

    We are coming into the LAST MONTH for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections. Early voting has started in many states and we are working to get EVERYONE who will vote our way to the polls. But, many of our voters don't vote in a Mid-Term election. In fact, they "skip the Mid-Terms." Will you help us have a conversation with as many voters as we can from now until November 8th and make sure everyone votes? We need to make 100,000 more calls, and any calls you make will help us put the races across the finish line. Thank you for helping by getting trained to phone. We will tell you everything you need to know and make sure you are set up on CALL HUB. Come on out, get trained, and then either come to a Zoom-hosted phone bank or Call on Your Own! Thank you!

    MORE BLUE '22 STRATEGY

    We at Commit to Democracy know that 2022 will be a tough year. We have to hold the House and expand the Senate in order to build for our country’s future. We must do this to continue passing legislation that will benefit the future of our families, our communities, and our entire nation. We must do this work to protect the democratic principles that our country was founded upon. Now is the time to step forward with a bold strategy and work to win.

    We can win! We have more volunteers than in other mid-term cycles, and we know how to organize. We won the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. We are not new to this work. Let’s start now by phone banking, texting, postcarding, and canvassing. We will win by using all these outreach efforts.
    We have more volunteers than in other mid-term cycles, and we know how to organize. We can Make the News. We can take the Narrative! Here's how!

    Our 2022 Strategy - Hold Blue Seats, Flip Open & Vulnerable Red Seats.

    Increase Our Majority & Create a Filibuster Proof Senate!

    Phone Bank for Democracy

    IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY PARTICIPATED IN A VIRTUAL PHONE BANK WITH COMMIT TO DEMOCRACY YOU SHOULD!

    You will join other VOLUNTEERS on Zoom and go to a break out room, either to receive training or to start making calls. Technical support will be available. Throughout our Phone Banks, you’re invited to meet your fellow phone bankers, share success stories, and provide us feedback.

    For most of our Phone Banks we will be using the automated dialer Callhub, which requires that you have a PC or MAC with audio functionality. It dials numbers for you through your computer; the voter sees a number with a local area code (not your phone number). Information on how to use CallHub will be included in our Confirmation email.

    Join us in this important work!

    Postcards to Voters (Commit To Democracy's Program) reaches out to Voters nationwide to strengthen and restore our democracy.  We have learned together that citizenship is an ongoing responsibility and engaging Voters in the political process is the only means for establishing equitable representation and legislation that fosters a more fair and just America for All!  Staying in touch with our fellow citizens to maintain awareness, keep them informed on elections and important work in the congress, registering new voters, and GOTV initiatives is critical.  Our Postcard Program is unique in that within California, VA, and SC we provide 22 different locations for Postcard pickup. In each location, we supply the cards, names, and scripts for you to write to fellow Americans.  We choose campaigns that are known to be effective and we provide all the support you need to be successful.  We hope you will join us in Reaching Out to America!
