Phone Banks

Join us as we make calls to voters in communities of color that are most affected by voter suppression. It is one of the most effective ways to make a difference. Our campaigns vary from simple GOTV efforts to more hands-on citizen legislative advocacy projects, which is why we use different phone banking platforms to suit the complexity of the calls we are making.
