Unemployment Benefits Webinar

The government has shut down our jobs and promised us unemployment benefits. But we’re all running into issues. We’re confused about how to apply or whether we qualify. We can’t get through on the phone. We can’t get our PIN. Join a long-time unemployment expert, Barney Oursler, to answer your questions about the unemployment system and get tips on how to apply.

Deep Canvassing Training

Deep canvassing is a way of talking to voters that gets beyond the usual partisan divides and allows us to have longer, more personal conversations to really connect with people and build a relationship over the phone. We believe this is the most impactful way that we can talk to voters in this moment. This training will provide an introduction to the deep canvassing methodology, and we will practice storytelling and compassionate curiosity and listening.
