Join Westside Branch organizers for a canvass to help elect a socialist to the state assembly. We’ll be meeting in the Park at 11:30 and will run through a basic training of the script before pairing comrades up to start door knocking.
- Bring your mask! We’re not out of the woods of the pandemic yet, so even if you’re vaccinated, please bring a mask. We’ll also have extras and hand sanitizer just in case.
- Charge your phones!
- You will need to use your phones to navigate which doors to knock on, using our program, Universe. You will not need to download a special app for Universe — just a smartphone that has a web browser.
- Study our conversation outline!
- We suggest you preview our SCRIPT for the canvass — we’ll be asking voters about what issues matter to them, and want you to feel comfortable being able to tie WHATEVER you hear back to the campaign. 🙂
- Bring a reusable water container!! We want to be sustainable as a campaign and will not be providing plastic water bottles where possible. Please bring reusable water containers that we can fill up on the spot.
- I recommend having a canvas bag, tote, backpack, or fanny pack, or other type of bag to carry any snacks and extra materials in.
- Be comfortable! Wear sneakers or whatever shoes are most comfortable for you to walk in. If you have a Fatima shirt, wear it 🙂
