Register through Eventbrite to receive a link to the videoconference on the morning of the event.

The current crisis is laying bare the extreme injustices and inequalities of our economic and social system.

We are in a battle of visions for how we’re going to respond to this crisis. We will either be catapulted backward to an even more brutal winner-takes-all system — or this will be a wake-up call.

Ideas that were dismissed as too radical just a week ago are starting to seem like the only reasonable path to get out of this crisis and prevent future ones.

We need to use every tool that we have that allows us to hear each other’s voices, to read each other’s words, to see each other’s faces, even if it’s just on screens, to stay organized and stay connected. We have to create spaces where we’re able to deliberate and strategize about what it means to protect our neighbors, our rights, and our planet.

We have to have the confidence to say this is the moment when we change everything.

Mon-Fri at 5pm + Sat. & Sun. at 12pm: Paige Kreisman for State Rep Phonebank Training & Group Call Sessions

Our campaign is 100% people powered. That means we rely on volunteer power to share our message with voters.

To prioritize community safety, we have suspended all in-person voter outreach. That means phonebanking is the most important action you can take to help our bold, progressive vision win at the ballot this May!

A computer is required to use the Paige Dialer, tablets and smart phones will not work. The Dialer is open daily from 9am – 7pm. Phonebank training and group call sessions will be held on Google Hangouts every Sat & Sun at noon, and Mon-Fri at 5pm.

Paige Kreisman is running for Oregon House District 42. Learn more at Paige2020.com.

Location: Your home! Visit Paige2020.com/Dial for details.

Daily: Make Calls for Serin Bussell for State Rep (HD-33)!

Can you make 33 calls? From your couch? We’re shifting gears and need your help!

Phone banking is super easy. We send you a link and a list, and you’re ready to go! And you can do it from anywhere. We’ve reached out to over 6,500 voters on the doors and now we have a goal to make 1,000 calls this week. I can’t do this without YOU.

Sign up today to make 33 calls!

Location: Your home, on your schedule.

Every Wednesday, 6-7pm: Mark Gamba for Congress Digital Volunteer Training

We will be using Zoom, which is an easy to use video conference program.  We’ll talk about how to make calls and text from home, how to be an effective social media organizer, and other ways to help.  Can’t make the call but still want to phonebank? Email Michael@markgamba.com if you have any issues or questions.

Mark Gamba is running for Congress in District 5 against Kurt Schrader. Learn more at markgamba.com.
