March Meeting: Grassroots Action
March 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
With less than 50 days until voting begins for the June 2018 elections we continue to mobilize for a progressive wave over SLO County. Many races end on June 5th and do not go on to the November election so it is now or never to support our candidates and make real change in our community.
Our March meeting will continue our Grassroots Action series where you can:
– Learn how to knock doors effectively through a full training that will include mock demos, and also an orientation of our mobile app. After the training you’ll be able to signup for one of dozens of walk events throughout the county.
– Live phonebank! Call voters to inform them how important our upcoming local elections are, introduce them to our candidates, and invite them to meet the candidates at upcoming meet-and-greets. Bring a cellphone or laptop/tablet if you can. Scripts and walkthroughs will be provided.
– Postcard writing to voters. Using our branded SLO County Progressives postcards (union printed!) write to voters about why we need to turn out in big numbers and invite them to local candidate events!
– Letter Writing Workshop: Learn how to write effective letters to the editor, and strategies for getting them published. Write one there at the meeting and get a free beer (or glass of wine)!
