Canvassing (knocking on doors) is the most effective way to identify supporters, persuade those on the fence, and make sure voters get to the polls.

We need you to:

  • knock on doors for Lean Left candidates

  • lead canvassing trips

  • identify people in your community or group who are interested in canvassing

  • host a training/roundtable in your home 

Next up in 2019: We’ll be holding Lean Left Webinars, including round-table discussions with experienced canvassers and training for specific actions.

Get started!

Interested in learning how to have a persuasive conversation with a voter? Watch these training videos from Organizing for Action. 

Listen to some veteran canvassers in our Virtual Round Table discussion. It’s an hour-plus long but worth every minute as the information you get will give you the confidence to get out there and knock on some doors.
