🌊WHAT IS OPEN PROGRESS TEXT TROOP? 🌊
The Open Progress Text Troop is a diverse community of committed volunteers from across the country who are engaging in issue-focused conversations with voters via person-to-person text messages. Together with Vote.org, we will target voters of color and voters under 30 in six states with SMS messages that provide detail and information about upcoming elections. Statistically, these groups do not receive any election messages from partisan campaigns; this mass marketing campaign will fill that gap.
We encourage citizens across the country, whether English or Spanish-speaking, to register to vote. We also help them find their polling locations. Our volunteers are trained by the best in order to create rich conversations with a better-informed electorate. And we want YOU to join us!
Worried you don’t have time? Even just 2 hours a week will allow you reach thousands of people.
Don’t despair. TEXT!
Texting does not use your cell phone or your personal phone number.
