What Is 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. 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!
Think you don’t have time? Even just 2 hours a week will allow you reach 1000 people. Don’t Despair. TEXT!

How to Join Text Troop
All of our work happens online; you won’t use your personal cell phone number. All you need is a computer and access to WiFi. Getting started with the Open Progress Text Troop is a simple process. Click the “I Volunteer” button to register for our Text Troop Slack Channel.
What is Slack? Slack is a powerful instant messaging platform that allows our volunteers to collaborate and communicate in real time. It’s free to download and, once installed, you’ll be directed by our volunteer leaders to training. Need more tips? Check out this video tutorial to get started.
HoST A TEXTING PARTY!
The resistance is more fun with friends. By hosting a group of friends to text bank you help spread democracy and open progress across the nation. We will give you all the materials you'll need to succeed.
