Host a Bernie Canvass!!
In order to help elect Bernie Sanders, Philly DSA Canvassing Committee needs members to regularly host small Bernie canvasses across Philly! These smaller canvasses are designed to be neighborhood events - we eventually want to have 2-3 canvasses running per week all across the city, so that members can regularly canvass around where they live. The canvassing committee will still have at least one large weekend canvass a month, where we do.
These smaller canvasses will officially be from 6-8:30 pm, but expect to spend at about 15 mins prepping clipboards before the canvass, and about 30 mins or so at the end of the canvass to break everything down and submit canvass feedback. Here are some of the things you'll need to do:
-Greet canvassers and ensure they sign in
-Briefly training new canvassers on the rap and pairing them with a more experienced canvassers
-Prepare clipboards with handout materials, rap, etc, and then distribute them to canvassers
-Stay in your home while canvassers are out canvassing, so that you are available if anyone comes back early
-Guide canvassers through data entry once they return
-Provide feedback to the canvassing committee that will help these events run smoother going forward
-Count materials at the end of the canvass and let the canvassing committee know if you need more before the next canvass
If you're interested in hosting, please fill out the form below. Someone from the committee will always reach out to you before scheduling a canvass to confirm availability and explain logistics. Please email Vicki at
