Topic - Organizing for Field Action
In less than two weeks we will know the candidates at the top of the Democratic ticket. So, it will soon be time to start working in earnest on the campaigns. With that in mind, the purpose of our meeting this month will be to organize ourselves for field action.
For those who are new to this game, field action includes canvassing, phone banking, voter registration, data entry, turf packet preparation and volunteer support (e.g., providing water and snacks). Almost everything the candidates do to reach voters except mass media and speaking engagements is part of "field." Field action requires many volunteers. When BAN was created four years ago our mission was to help fill the need for finding and organizing field volunteers. Since then we have expanded the focus, but field is still our heart and soul.
