We flipped the House in 2018, but now it’s time to defend the seats we helped flip from red to blue. And we can’t do it without dedicated people like you! On this page you’ll find:
- Canvassing trainings,
- Phone banking resources, and
- Fact sheets about the five Congressional candidates we’re supporting.
This is it — the activity that makes the biggest difference in a campaign. Studies have shown that the best way to get a commitment to vote is through face-to-face engagement. When you volunteer for a canvass, a campaign will give you a script and flyers that will help guide your conversations as you talk to voters about the issues that matter to them; the candidate; and how to make a plan to vote.
All of the campaigns we’re helping out also use an app to canvass. This makes door knocking easier and faster. Use your smartphone to download PDI Mobile Connect (click here for Apple devices; and click here for Android devices) and bring it with you on your canvass. If you don’t have a smartphone, you’ll be partnered with someone who does.

You can phone bank with a group (Sea Change does it every week in Culver City) or on your own at home. It’s a great way to reach voters and have conversations about the issues that matter most to them.
