VA Victory DAILY Textbank

Speaking of Network NoVA: Do you want to do something in addition to writing postcards but you don't like phone banking? Have you tried text banking?  Network NoVA, the grassroots organization just across the river, is doing DAILY text banks.

We can't promise you'll get to work on the particular campaigns the Ward 6 Dems have chosen - Rep. Abigail Spanberger and Rep. Elaine Luria - but you will be supporting Joe Biden, Senator Mark Warner, and other Dems running in Virginia.

The focus is similar to phone banking, that is, you're not trying to convince hard core MAGA-heads to change their minds; you're exhorting inconsistent Dem voters to get to the polls and, this year in particular, providing information about their options so they can vote safely. (And speaking from personal experience, I've found that I get a much better response from text banking than from phone banking. Most folks won't pick up a number they don't recognize these days, but lots of folks are willing to have a quick text conversation with you. --Elizabeth Engel, newsletter editor)

Details and RSVP at Network NoVA is text banking two hours every week day and four hours (in two different time slots) every weekend day, so you can easily do as little or as much as you like.
