TEXTING IS THE NEW DOOR KNOCK

Join us to expand our Democracy Text Team to help build a nationwide TEXT FORCE to stay in touch with voters in states we must win in November.

Without a BLUE Senate, we cannot save our democracy and pass critical legislation required to resolve the issues and inequities further exposed by the policies of the Trump Administration and COVID-19.

This is our moment to create the change we need. 

We have already built a team of more than 100 volunteer texters within the Commit to Flip Blue community, but more help is needed! 

Join our team in one of the upcoming Training Sessions.

Help us reach out and communicate with our fellow citizens as we navigate our way back to a state of normalcy and prepare for the most important election of our lifetime.

RSVP for one of the texting sessions below and help us build the mobile canvassing machine we need to Flip Blue in 2020!

Email Linda Carman at marinello100@yahoo.com with any questions. 

NOTE: these training events are held in a Zoom Meeting Room (via video conference). Once you RSVP, your Session Leader will send you more details about how to Zoom, will send you the Zoom link as well as the steps to take prior to the training.
