We will be canvassing in Fairmount for our next small-scale canvass for Bernie and Kendra and Nick! Please bring a laptop so that you can quickly enter the sign-up data that you collect when you get back to the launch location.
Since our last big weekend canvass, the Sanders campaign has released:
the Democratic field's most ambitious plan to fight climate change
the Justice and Safety for All Plan, which, among other things, proposes to eliminate cash bail, mandatory minimums and solitary confinement
a Workplace Democracy Plan to expand union membership, build worker power and get rid of the 'right to work' for less
And, of course, he has continued to say what he has believed for decades: that healthcare is a human right. There's never been a more exciting time to canvass for Bernie!
Back in February, our chapter voted overwhelmingly to endorse Bernie Sanders because he is the only candidate in the race who will fight for our values. From Medicare for All to the Green New Deal to his recently announced plan to forgive all student debt, Bernie has consistently championed programs to build working class power and fight the massive inequality plaguing America today.
This is an opportunity to continue our work building support for Bernie's campaign in earnest. Do you know a friend who's curious about DSA? A member of your union who you've been trying to radicalize? A coworker who complains about how all politicians are crooks? Bring them! Big debates like these are one of the few times where people who don't follow politics that closely get engaged. They'll have the chance to see Bernie draw a clear contrast between our vision of a democratic society for the many and the dead-end corporate centrism for the few that his establishment opponents represent.
Weeknight canvasses are an easy, but important way to have face-to-face conversations with working people about the shortcomings of our capitalist system and how Bernie is the ONLY candidate offering solutions that address the needs of the working class. If you are a first time canvasser, no worries! You'll be trained and paired with an experienced canvasser.
**Please note that capacity is limited for weeknight neighborhood canvasses, which are hosted out of the homes of Philly DSA members. RSVP via the link at the bottom of the page to secure your space.**
