GET READY FOR NOVEMBER!
The races for control of Congress and Harrisburg are officially on, and we’re not wasting any time! Democrats across Pennsylvania are taking action, and anyone who wants PA to turn blue can join. Here’s what you need to know.
In every part of PA, local Democrats are walking door-to-door in their communities, speaking with neighbors about the issues important to them (aka “canvassing”).
In doing so, canvassers will raise awareness of this November’s crucial election while promoting Democrats up and down the ballot.
Why It’s Happening
Face-to-face conversation is still, by far, the best way to connect with and persuade voters. We must speak with voters early, often, and repeatedly to win big in November, and this weekend’s our first major push to do so.
Get involved and meet others who want to build the Blue wave!
More here to volunteer, intern, or contribute.
