    Intro To Phone Banking For Postcard Writers & Newbies

    Training For Those Who Don't Think Phone Banking Is For You!

    WE NEED YOU TO BE TRAINED AND COMFORTABLE NOW!  

    GET READY FOR GOTV (Get Out The Vote) Calls in October! 

    We are pleased to offer this special training for new callers or reluctant callers.

    We know it's a big step to make calls. In the time of COVID-19 we cannot knock on doors and a couple of hundred votes can make all the difference in a tight race. So we really need your help calling Democrats in swing states to advocate they return their mailed ballots or get to the polls. 

    Come learn what is involved; what technology is needed; practice a script; and sign up to phone bank with our virtual groups only after you are comfortable and fully trained.
