Our Get-Out-The-Vote effort is in full swing! We are going door-to-door in key districts speaking directly with voters about how important the midterm elections will be in determining the health of our planet and our democracy for years to come. 

These photos from the field feature our hard-working canvassing team engaging voters one knock at a time.


How Canvassing Works

Canvassing is a time-tested tactic to connect with voters who are likely to support the same candidates we do and to remind them how important their vote is. A team of committed people divide up a list of the voters in their area that they want to talk with, and pound the pavement to inspire as many voters as possible.


Our canvassing team in Pennsylvania gets ready to knock some doors!

Our canvasser, Liv, is a seasoned pro when it comes to canvassing. She’s been involved in various environmental groups in her area, and thinks canvassing is crucial to get out the vote.

“There’s so much at stake this mid-term election… we should be concerned about everything from climate change to clean water and air…to supporting a woman’s right to choose.”

Liv has knocked on hundreds of doors in the hopes that residents will chat with her about the importance of this year’s election.

Because polluting corporations only care about their profits, canvassers put their time and energy into protecting the world we love.

“Given that the last election was really close, canvassers can really make a difference. I canvas for candidates like Chris DeLuzio because he’s willing to hold corporations accountable.”
