We are building a grassroots movement to send mail-in ballot applications to voters as soon as possible, and then follow up on those applications with volunteer calls, texts, and digital ads to ensure that they are filled out and returned in time.
To win during Covid-19 and voter suppression, the old playbook won’t cut it
