Get Out The Vote! Arlington Canvassing Opportunities
Time to canvass in Arlington! Because knocking on doors is the most effective way to get out the vote, WofA strongly urges everyone to volunteer for a shift(s). We’re focusing on the following dates: October 21 and 22; October 28 and 29; and November 4, 5, 6, and 7. We suggest going to the two locations with the densest populations. We also ask that you RSVP with the organizer for that location so that the Campaign can prepare enough packets and materials for everyone.
Every Wednesday through November 1st!!!
Please join us for our weekly Day of Action! Knocking on doors is the most effective way to get out the vote. Come canvass with us and the Northam Campaign in Arlington every Wednesday evening, 6:00-8:30 or earlier, launching from 525 N Jackson St (map), until Election Day. See you soon!
Be the change you want to see in the world
Canvass Day II!
Our first multi-group Canvass Day was so great, we went again! TWW-NoVa and Network NoVa organized a wonderful Canvass Day and Happy Hour, with great success!
Not only did 100+ grassroots canvassers knock tons of doors, but almost all of these candidates reported 3X or 4X more doors knocked than the previous weekend! Our PR apparently inspired folks to get off their couches and out talking with neighbors on a beautiful day.
First Canvass Day Rocks the Commonwealth!
The Resistance was in the House!! The grassroots pulled out all the stops for Virginia House of Delegates candidates on September 9. David Reid and Donte Tanner welcomed tons of WofA members; Deb Rodman was excited to receive road trippers from Indivisible Arlington; Wendy Gooditis embraced Jim Shelton’s merry big band of supporters; and Hala Ayala was pumped up by Ellen Renaud’s traveling canvass party. Intrepid Canvass Day activists also gave wonderful support to other candidates, such as Elizabeth Guzman, Kathy Tran, Lee Carter, and John Bell. #TogetherWeWill!
Donte Tanner even took a Canvass Day canvasser out for ice cream afterwards – nice!!
Hope we’ll see you all at the next grassroots Canvass Day, September 23. Sign up here and sign up a friend!!
United Fundraiser A Smashing Success!
Members of WofA and friends raised $31,000 (and still counting!) to flip Virginia’s House of Delegates! You can donate at goo.gl/WgJ1T2 – all funds are sent directly to the campaigns by nonpartisan payment processor CrowdPac, which is supported only by optional tips at checkout. We the grassroots do not handle or receive any funds.
Many thanks to Delegates Rip Sullivan, Marcus Simon, Patrick Hope, Alfonso Lopez, Mark Levine, as well as keynote speaker Tom Perriello, for inspiring these magnificent results. They joined 17 swing district candidates, as well as members of WofA, Network NoVa, Virginia Democracy Forward, Indivisible Arlington, and Blue NoVa, fellow activists, friends, and family. Thanks to the fantastic folks at Clare & Don’s Beach Shack in Falls Church for providing the relaxing vibe before Delegate Sullivan got the crowd excited for action. Onward and upward!!
