It’s 2024! So GAI is joining forces with other local, grassroots organizations to offer a way for people to focus on actions. It’s an important year, and our strength is in our numbers. All are welcome!
Next Activist Afternoon: March 10th
We organize a variety of in-person events and virtual meetings so members can meet candidates, learn about urgent issues, or simply work on actions in a social setting.
Bring a friend!
Effective - Hand-written postcards are read by the recipient and have been proven to work.
Convenient - You can pick up packets at several locations around town or at any of our meetings.
Fun - You can complete the postcards with friends, join us for postcarding, or at home in front of the tv.
Why knock on doors?
Most people don’t want to knock on doors, but it is proven time and time again that nothing is as effective as a one-on-one conversation with a voter.
And similar to phone calls, we support canvassing that is carefully curated and simply requires we provide information.
Why call people on the phone?
Second only to canvassing, phone banking is incredibly effective.
People you’re calling are curated - you don’t need to change anyone’s mind.
Calls are typically focused on simply providing information to voters.
Anonymous - Your phone number is protected.
If you’re short on time but still want to make an impact, there are a number of organizations and candidates who need your contributions, including us.
Show of force - Make an issue too big to ignore, e.g. BLM, March for Our Lives, Women’s March
Show of support - Make it visible to people driving by that they are not alone
Inform - e.g. Remind people to vote
Vent - Sometimes when you feel helpless, standing on a corner with a sign can make you feel like you did something.
Check out our Listen, Watch, Read list of podcasts, shows, movies and books our members are tapping into to keep learning about these complex issues.
