Indivisible Candidate Forum

Attendance is free, but you must RSVP at https://actionnetwork.org/events/indivisible-leadership-summit-connecting-candidates-with-volunteers/ !

The last thing we want is to wind up with a bunch of mini-Trumps running around Colorado, so we are hosting a candidate forum to unite the left behind these Democratic candidates! The goal of this forum is to connect volunteers with candidates in order to help the #bluewave wash over Colorado. This is also an opportunity for those who may be hesitating volunteering for some reason to hear the candidates out as they address common concerns held by many.

The way we do this is by giving each of the candidates time to speak on the policies of their campaign and how best to volunteer, followed up with some time for Q&A. After the candidates have all spoken and they've done their job by firing you up about an issue you're passionate about, it's your job to grab a drink and connect with one of the campaigns that really spoke to you. For the last hour, we will drink and phonebank, or snack and write postcards, or maybe something else entirely depending on the campaign you connect with, and watch the #bluewave begin to crest!

The event is free, but attendance is limited so you must RSVP at https://actionnetwork.org/events/indivisible-leadership-summit-connecting-candidates-with-volunteers/
