***UPDATE – FIND THE CONVERSATION ABOUT VOLUNTEERING FOR A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN HERE.
Join us for the thirteenth episode of Answering the Call as we talk to Rita Casaverde, Jen Ford, Quinn Brady and Emma Sullivan about working and volunteering for a political campaign.
You march, you vote, and you are engaged with your community – now is the time to bring your civic engagement to the next level. One of the most impactful ways to make a difference is to elect leaders you believe will fight for you and your community. Our panelists are veterans of campaigning, and they want you to get involved too! Join us for a talk about different roles within the campaign, what the best role for you might be, and how campaigning will be different this year due to the pandemic.
