Getting Started

Ready organize a group to knock on doors (canvass)? That’s great! Studies show that face to face conversations are twice as effective as phone calls, and even more effective than texting.

We suggest attending a few events before hosting your own event—just check out our event calendar.

Early 2019 will be a little quiet for door knocking, but that will change soon. Also, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Virginia have off-year state elections, so there may be some 2019 opportunities in those states.

Interested in a particular state? Check out our Swing Left 2020 guide, and join a key state team!

Looking for an opportunity in a particular state or with a particular campaign? Check out MobilizeAmerica. It is a little quiet now, but that will change.
