About this trip

Join hundreds of Bay Area residents heading to Milwaukee to help win a critical 2020 battleground state!

 
4 days. 

1,000 volunteers from the Bay Area.

200,000 doors knocked. 

Flip a state that's critical for dems in 2020 election 

(While sampling the city's best cheese curds

 

Analysts predict the 2020 election will be decided by Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, where Hillary only lost by a combined 70,000 votes.  Increasing voter turnout a fraction of a percent in a few key cities like Milwaukee and Detroit could very well decide the election. 


A volunteer-led trip, we're recruiting an army of Bostonians who are willing to give up a weekend and a couple vacation days to fight their hearts out in Milwaukee, no matter the democratic nominee.
 

Why Milwaukee? 

Wisconsin is the most vulnerable midwestern battleground state for democrats in 2020 and the outcome is likely to hinge on voter turnout in Milwaukee, which dripped by 10 percentage points in 2016. In other words, turnout in Milwaukee has been highly variable--precisely the type of environment where boots on the ground matter most.
 

Knock on 200,000 doors, deliver 15,000 votes 

1,000 volunteers working over four days to engage 200,000 voters could quite literally change the  election. The best estimate is that an interaction with a volunteer canvasser increases likelihood of voting by 7-9 percentage points, a finding that has proven robust across seminal studies employing rigorous experimental methods. 

 

Face-to-face canvassing actually works 

It’s not pretty or glamorous, but getting out there and having personal, authentic interactions with people matters. Numerous studies point to the efficacy of volunteer-based door to door canvassing for mobilizing voter turnout before elections as compared to other outreach modalities (mailers, text, calls).
 

No experience necessary – we’ll make sure you have what you need to be effective 

We’ll supplement the materials shared by local campaign offices with intensive trainings to educate volunteers on local political issues and how to leverage game-changing data platforms and apps as well as empirically proven social psychology based tactics needed to maximize canvassing impact. 

 

We’ll take care of all planning and logistics 

So many people we talk to want to invest more time and effort than ever before in this coming election to change the course of our country. We are organizing this trip to lower the barrier to participation, taking care of all logistics and planning for you. Just show up with a good pair of shoes. In addition to working hard, we’ll have events planned in the evening to unwind and build community, taking advantage of everything Milwaukee has to offer.
