The Outreach Team

The Outreach Team is one of the largest field vendors in the country. We work on behalf of amazing progressive partners to win real social change for good. Our goal is to consistently raise the overall level of organizing/canvass work across platforms by thinking holistically about our clients, the campaign we are trying to win, and the staff who work on the campaign. We are excited to be running many campaigns working on critical issues.

General Overview: COVID-19 has altered the political landscape forever, but one thing remains the same: nothing is going to engage voters, constituents, and members more effectively than talking to them face to face about the important work ahead. If we are going to continue to win on the issues, we’re going to need to mobilize millions of Americans to take action and vote. The Outreach Team has developed an effective health and safety protocol that allows us to go door to door or to speak with people in public places while keeping our staff and the people we speak to safe.
