Canvassing for Medicare for All in Three Rivers!

Date: 
Mon, Sep 17, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

What is canvassing?
Canvassing is the easiest and most natural of all the things we do--it's just talking to people, and especially listening to them. It is also the most effective and important thing we do to garner support for Medicare for All. If you really want to make Single Payer happen, this is the work to be doing. -We will supply equipment and give a mini training before hand

If you are not experienced, you can go with a more experienced person to see what it is like!
