GO Team Liaison – Vacant

The Grassroots Organizing Team (GO Team) connects with voters in our community, building better turnout with a personal touch. By walking and talking with voters, we average a 14% increase in Democratic voter turnout in our GO Team covered precincts. Go Team is an outreach operation that works block-by-block, door-by-door, person-to-person. The GO Team welcomes new members in non-election years. The Go Team provide training, support, and all the materials you’ll need to talk to fellow Democrats or to provide data support. During the months leading up to each election, you’ll be walking/calling with a list of all the endorsed candidates to encourage full-ticket voting. We are glad to have your help.
