Canvass for Bernie Sanders This Weekend in the Mission
Our friends at DSA San Francisco are teaming up with Bernie’s California team to do some canvassing this weekend. If you want to see real change in the United States, here’s your chance to help make it happen. All the info from the FB event is below:
Come support Bernie with your fellow comrades. We will be canvassing the Mission for voters and spreading the good word about the DSA to other Bernie volunteers. We will meet at 9:30 at the office 350 Alabama and walk over to 2235 mission St. at the Bernie office to start canvasing at 10 am. All you need is your phone! We should be done by noon. Friends and non DSA Bernie supporters welcome!
Please sign up here. This will help Bernie team get turfs ready.
Check out this great article showing how, if we volunteer, Bernie will win.
So I will say this as clearly as I can: if you get involved with this campaign this week, today, or even now, Bernie Sanders has an extremely good chance of winning this. He can do what so many other candidates have done and begin his climb to the top as election year begins; he can build big leads in the early states and barrel through Super Tuesday and before anyone can do anything about it he will suddenly have an outright majority of delegates and leave Milwaukee as the nominee. This is not some moonshot, and it is not even historically or statistically unlikely: Bernie is well within striking distance, but he needs you to put him over the finish line.
Also it would be cool to all come decked on in DSA stuff like the jacket and shirt. What is great about Bernie canvassing is when someone is undecided you get to say whatever you want about why you support Bernie, so can be pretty mask off if you want.
If you can’t make it no worries, here are some other ways to get involved through texting and calling or another canvass:
* Sign up to volunteer! It’s a simple three-minute form, all you’re doing is giving your contact information and marking stuff you might be interested in doing (like knocking on doors, or making calls, or coming into your local headquarters).
* Find an event near you – or host one! Info right here.
* Make calls! This page walks you through everything: it gives you a training video, a step-by-step guide, a script for the calls. There’s even a Slack that you can join immediately. A lot of people find it easier to meet up with friends and make calls together, so consider setting a date.
* Download the BERN app and get your friends involved!
If you will it it is no dream!
