Canvass for TSPLOST, Gonzalez and Wallace! @ A4E Office
Nov 6 @ 4:30 pm

Come canvass with us! Athens for Everyone is canvassing for TSPLOST, John Wallace State House 119 and Deborah Gonzalez State House 117! Never canvassed before? Veteran canvasser Adam Lassila will show us the ropes with a brief training at the A4E office before we head out.

Our office can be difficult to find. Go through the door directly to the right of the tree room (that’s the unit with the trees sticking out of it), and head down the hall. We are five doors down, on the left.

Special Election Phonebank @ A4E office
Nov 6 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Let’s phonebank A4E members and let them know about the upcoming special election on November 7.

All you’ll need to bring is a phone!

Our office is very difficult to find. We’re in the Tracy Street Warehouses, enter the door to the left of the “tree room” and then walk down the hall to just before the fire door and we’re on the left. If you get lost, give me a call at 706-621-4148 and I’ll walk you through it.  -Chris

Victory Canvassing with Jonathan Wallace @ Parking Lot of Eastside Publix
Nov 12 @ 2:45 pm – 5:30 pm

Come celebrate Democrat Jonathan Wallace’s victory in State House District 119 by helping him and Athens for Everyone meet his constituents, learn their concerns, and talk about Jonathan’s priorities.

Unlike during an election, when strategic necessity means we have to focus primarily on people we know vote, now we get to organize a broader swath of constituents and bring more people into this transformative political movement. We’ll knock on every door in a couple apartment complexes to listen to the issues they care about most and talk about how we can address them with the changes we’ll make when we win a transformative majority in the state legislature!

Jonathan and A4E know that being in touch with and learning from the people of the district isn’t just for election season. It’s year round and it’s how we grow toward the better Athens and the better society we all want.

See ya Sunday!

Meet at 2:45pm in the Parking Lot of the Eastside Publix, 1860 S Barnett Shoals Rd, Athens, GA 30605.

Victory Canvassing with Deborah Gonzalez @ The parking lot at Broadacres Ct., (off Rocksprings)
Nov 19 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Come celebrate Democrat Deborah Gonzalez’s victory in State House District 117 by helping her and Athens for Everyone meet her constituents, learn their concerns, and talk about Deborah’s priorities.

Unlike during an election, when strategic necessity means we have to focus primarily on people we know vote, now we get to organize a broader swath of constituents and bring more people into this transformative political movement. We’ll knock on every door in a couple dense areas to listen to the issues they care about most and talk about how we can address them with the changes we’ll make when we win a transformative majority in the state legislature!

Deborah and A4E know that being in touch with and learning from the people of the district isn’t just for election season. It’s year round and it’s how we grow toward the better Athens and the better society we all want.

See ya Sunday!
