The earlier updates were missing information about one of the newer GetOrganizedBK working groups, Changing the Conversation Together. So this update is just about them:
Changing the Conversation Together – December 2018 Update
Changing the Conversation Together uses the evidence-based strategy of Deep Canvassing to convince swing voters to oppose hate politics, uphold basic decency, and defend the checks and balances that are critical to democracy. In 2018, CTC’s first year of operation, we knocked on more than 9,000 doors and engaged in 2,000 conversations. Through this work, CTC played a critical role in helping Democrat Max Rose achieve an unlikely victory in New York’s 11th Congressional District.
This six minute video by documentary filmmaker David Van Taylor for Now This is a great introduction to our first year’s work and the upset win in NY11.
Looking ahead to 2019-2020, CTC Leadership is establishing a two-pronged approach. We’ll continue training and expanding our local team of canvassers and at the same time establish relationships with groups on the ground in critical 2020 swing states. Our goal: implement deep canvassing widely, efficiently, and effectively in the 2020 presidential election.
Get in touch now if you’d like to join our midterm follow-up team, email firstname.lastname@example.org and keep an eye out for upcoming opportunities to train and canvass early in 2019!
