Deep Canvass: Training and Canvass

  • 1466 Manor Rd Staten Island, NY United States (map)

This is a training session for people who want to learn the essential lessons of deep canvassing. Deep canvassing is an empathetic, listening-based method of voter engagement that leads to respectful conversation.

It is also the most effective form of voter persuasion ever measured. By listening to voters’ stories and sharing their own, deep canvassers invite swing voters to help pull the country back from the brink.

During this workshop, volunteers will learn more about the background, history, thinking that goes into deep canvassing. Before going out into the field we will role play, review script and discuss tactics for best approaches to this form of voter engagement. People who want to shadow more experienced canvassers, are welcome to do so. After the training, volunteers will go out to give deep canvassing a try and then regroup for a debriefing session.

We will be renting a room and ordering food. Please consider a suggested donation of $10-$20 to help offset the cost of this canvass: DONATE HERE
