Chop Wood, Carry Texas! 🌵
Hi, all, and happy Tuesday.
First, I hope you had a good Fourth—or as good as it could be under these (extremely difficult) circumstances.
Second, welcome to my new subscribers. I’m so glad to see so many folks grabbing on to a big, important state like Texas and digging in! It does my heart good. And my God, WE CAN WIN THERE! With your help, of course.
Speaking of which, let me get to why I’m writing: I know you all have access to the TX resource doc (linked above), and I know you’ve seen the phonebanks listed in there. But I also know that many of you have never clicked on one.
And I get it. Phone banking can seem scary as hell. But it’s a really critical part of how we win elections.
So I wanted to send you an invitation to something that’s not TX-specific, and not a phonebank per se, but key to our winning in Texas (and everywhere.) It’s a training called:
Phone Bank Training for Introverts
I’ve heard nothing but amazing stuff about this workshop, y’all. Here’s the description:
Phone banking is the most effective way to connect with voters besides canvassing. But what if you're not very comfortable calling strangers?
Graduates of this supportive workshop say it's one of the best trainings ever. Led by three introverts-who-phone-bank, it begins with key skills that introverts already have and shows you how to build on them.
In this workshop you will learn:
📲 How to make use of key skills that you already have, such as the ability to listen thoughtfully and understand other introverts
📲 How to make meaningful one-to-one connections
📲 How to deal with common phone banking challenges
📲 How to make phone banking fun, even for introverts
The training is on Wednesday, July 13 from 5 – 6:45pm PDT. If you’ve never phonebanked before please consider signing up. You don’t even have to commit to using what you learn—just go find out more, please?
November gets more life-or-death by the day. We have to win big. Please consider taking this next step in your activism to help us do just that.
More very soon, brave people.
All my best.
