WATER FOR GRASSROOTS VOLUNTEER CALENDAR
These local organizing groups know their communities, and they know how to reach people who might not otherwise vote. Volunteering with a grassroots group is one of the most effective ways you can help defeat Trump in November – and change the swing states for good.
Sign up with one of our organizing partners at the links below. (In some phonebanks listed on this page, you can make calls in Spanish; click here to see these Spanish calling sessions listed together.)
