We have several new ways for you to get involved and help Biden, Warner and Dr. Webb win in November. It is also critical to make sure that voters have access to the ballot and can vote safely in this election.
THESE ARE 4 INITIATIVES WHERE WE ASK FOR YOUR HELP:
1. Distributing flyers to doors throughout the city so that everyone knows all the options for voting and has information to register to vote or get their rights restored and has a contact for questions. (We will not be knocking on doors because of Covid; we will leave the flyers without contact.)
2. Contacting voters by phone at one of our regularly scheduled, safe, in person phonebanks–it’s a great way to see fellow Dems while working to help the candidates get elected. These phonebanks are outside in a beautiful yard, with tents for rain.
3. Calling people who may not be registered to vote and helping them get registered so their voices are heard.
4. Preparing for voter protection efforts to make sure all votes count.
You can sign up for any (and all!) of these initiatives HERE.
Actions for Dr. Cameron Webb
Phonebanks: We’re having a lot of phonebanks this week! Our scheduled phonebank sessions will use an autodialer, which is the fastest and most productive way to make calls. We strongly encourage volunteers to sign up for a scheduled phonebank if it fits their schedule. The autodialer requires at least 5-6 people to be calling at the same time for it to be effective, so we want people to sign up for these shifts. They will take place Mondays and Wednesdays 1pm – 3pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm – 8pm. Don’t forget to share this signup link with your committees!
Alternative option for phonebanking: For folks who can’t make it to any of our scheduled events, we’ve added a virtual “anytime” action to our Mobilize site. Using this link volunteers can access an OpenVPB seven days a week between 10am and 8:30pm.
Textbanking: We have a digital texting community up and running!
To join, volunteers can sign up for a text training at this link
Action for the Coordinated Campaign Biden, Warner and Dr. Webb
If you’re ready to go, you can start or continue phone banking right away! We are seeing much higher than usual contact rates, with far more people willing to answer the phone these days. We hope to call the voters on these lists over the next 10 days, we can’t do it without you!

Help out by Text banking
If you are interested in text banking (mostly done from a computer rather than a phone), the Coordinated Campaign has a great system for sending out individual text messages to voters about upcoming events. The system allows for personalized responses and never uses your own phone number. This is a great way to reach younger voters and voters who do not answer their phones. To learn more, you can sign up for the training
11:30-12:30 every Friday, grab a coffee or your lunch and drop by to meet and mingle with the VA Victory Field Team. You can drop in for just a few minutes or the entire hour. They will have updates from the Coordinated campaign, and they also will take questions. This will be an open conversation to share ideas and plans for the year. Signup link
