Come canvass with us for Medicare for All!

Date: 
Fri, Jun 1, 2018 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Come join us for our second Medicare for All canvass! We knocked on almost 100 doors for our first canvass and had great discussions with folk about health insurance and health care. If you've never canvassed before, don't worry. It's fun! We'll start with a brief training, and you'll have a buddy with whom to canvass. If you're (literally or not) sick and tired of the current state health insurance and health care, this is a great opportunity to have some conversations with others about it, and spread the word about Medicare for All.
