Join organizers from People’s Action and Pennsylvania Stands Up to learn how deep canvassing is being used in 2022 to persuade working class conflicted voters in a lasting way, mobilize big grassroots teams, and increase voter turnout. People’s Action is running a nationwide deep canvass in 2022 to build support for progressive solutions in contested midterm elections. In addition to using our deep canvass infrastructure to persuade voters to vote for our candidates, we have been running off cycle issue based deep canvasses on immigration, climate and wages. Deep canvassing continues to be the only voter engagement tactic proven, in experiment after experiment, to have a large persuasive impact that can last for months or longer. Join us and learn how to counteract the fear, prejudice, and despair that poison our communities and build a bigger “we” as a progressive movement. You’ll learn how to apply this approach in your own work to make your conversations with voters as powerful as the moment demands.
