    You will need to use browsers like Firefox or Chrome, the dialer does not work on Safari.

    Make sure you have Zoom downloaded on your computer and a computer, phone and headset handy.

    If you’d like to prepare ahead of time, take a look at smvmt.org/denneycalls ! That guide holds talking points, a sample script, a link to the dialer, and more. This isn’t necessary, though, as well have time on the call to go over it. How to prepare:

    Note from the organizer:

    An Audrey Denney victory would send a powerful message: that people at one of the epicenters of the climate catastrophe are voting for a Green New Deal, and turning red districts blue. Join our calls to make that dream a reality!

    Studies show that person to person conversations are the most effective way of winning votes for a candidate, and during the COVID pandemic, phone calls are crucial.

    Everyone in Sunrise is invited to phonebank for Green New Deal champion Audrey Denney! No experience necessary as first-timers can opt into a training at the beginning of every phonebank, but return phonebankers can dive right in.
