Good canvass organizers should make experienced canvassers available to partner with anyone who’s stepping out for the first time. ILNH has also put together a team of coaches who will be available to accompany a new canvasser and show them the ropes.
If you’d like an ILNH Canvassing Coach, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least three days prior to the canvassing event you’re planning to attend. Include the event date/time/location plus your mobile number. We can’t guarantee they’ll be available for every canvass, but we’ll make an effort to have coverage when possible.
As a side note: Experienced or not, we strongly recommend that folks have a partner when canvassing for safety and security reasons. If you don’t already have one when arriving at the staging location, be sure to let the organizers know you want to be paired with someone.
