Sunday, August 19, 12-3pm (+ other Sundays in August): Sunday Canvass for Jo Ann!
Despite being severely outspent in the primary, our people powered campaign finished in first because we reached out directly to tens of thousands of voters at their door. With more than twice as many voters expected to cast a ballot in the upcoming November election, we have to ramp up this winning strategy to ensure victory!
Join #TeamJoAnn every Sunday at noon in August at our new campaign headquarters at the Filipino American Center in Montavilla. Together we can prove the power of grassroots, progressive campaigning throughout Portland!
