January 27 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST RSVP IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND THIS EVENT!
RSVP HERE: https://www.mobilize.us/ft6/event/201265/
Join Optimist Resist to flip Arizona BLUE! A state where we MUST defeat Trump and Martha McSally in order to flip the Senate in 2020. Trump only won our state by 3+ points – so Arizona is in play. We can also flip the Arizona Senate and House blue. Let’s gooooo!!!
No experience necessary. At the start of your first shift we will provide a 30-minute training session and then deploy you in small teams to local hot spots. Hot spots are the locations where we do voter registration. For this event we will be targeting ASU campuses and Maricopa Community College Campuses. These are the best hotspots!
There are 14 college campuses in the metro Phoenix area. There are 71,000 community college students at 10 campuses and 72,000 ASU students at four campuses. More than enough opportunities to register Democrats.
What we need is YOU and your friends to engage and register these new voters.
We will launch the voter registration event at the Starbucks on the corner of Forest and University in Tempe, Arizona. There is a parking garage just north of the Starbucks.
We’ll have everything you need – clipboards, VR forms, pens and cool stickers to give to newly registered voters.
Just bring water, some comfortable shoes, and a hat. Wear a liberal looking t-shirt if you have one. It can really help. (And if you don’t have one, no worries! We have some “Not Trump” pins you can wear.)
We encourage you to sign up for an Arizona-Specific Training Call here: https://www.mobilize.us/ft6/event/89253/
