50-State Canvass: Changing our party and changing our country
When Governor Dean was elected chairman of our party, he promised to transform the way we do business.
On April 29th, thousands of Democrats across the country will be part of the next big step in our drive to build the party infrastructure and bring new people into the political process. At Neighbor-to-Neighbor Organizing Day events in all 50 states, people like you will be making the contacts and getting the experience that will build our organization and bring us closer to victory not only this November, but in 2008 and beyond.
Chances are there's an event near you where folks will be knocking on doors and having conversations with neighbors about the future of our country -- will you join them? You can find an event near you here:
Most of the door-hangers have already arrived at various state party headquarters around the country for distribution to people hosting canvassing events in their communities.
We also received a large shipment here at national headquarters this morning, which we will be distributing directly to the events in and around Washington. I've included a few photos on the right.
Whether you're a seasoned campaign volunteer or you've never knocked on a door in your life, this canvass will be a fun and important opportunity to reach out in your community. If you haven't yet found your nearest canvass, you can search for one now:
This 50-state canvass is only possible because ordinary people decided to make it happen. You funded the door-hangers and you will be having the conversations with your neighbors on April 29th.
If you want to change this country, it's up to you to take the next step. Please get involved and spread the word!
