ONLINE – BootCamp2020: Textbanking Support Session
August 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Welcome to BootCamp2020, Lean Left’s jumping off point for Election 2020!
This election will be like no other, and it’s going to take all of us working hard to make sure voters in key states are able to exercise their right to vote—safely! Voting laws are changing quickly and deadlines for voter registration/vote-by-mail applications will be here before you know it; plus Democratic candidates need to lay the foundation for a final Get-Out-The-Vote push in October by identifying supporters, recruiting volunteers, and raising funds now. The earlier we get started, the more we’ll power that blue wave in November!
Peer-to-peer texting (aka textbanking) is a fun, flexible, innovative way to reach voters (and voters-to-be!) all over the country from the comfort and safety of your couch. It does take some time and effort to get comfortable with the tools and systems of the different texting groups, though! For this session, we are asking folks to view a recorded webinar — Textbanking 101 — at a time that works for you, sign up with the texting group of your choice and do some texting on your own — then join us on Zoom on 8/19 to share your experiences (good, bad, funny, frustrating, etc.!), ask questions and get tips from from more experienced Lean Left texters! After you sign up, we’ll send you an email with all the links you need!
