About the event
West University Area Democrats:
Please block walk with us on February 4th.
You may be saying what is a block walk (“canvass”) and/or why do we do it. One of the key aims of block walking is to persuade undecided voters and reinforce support among existing backers. With direct conversations at the doorstep, canvassers engage in addressing voters’ concerns, share the candidate’s or cause’s vision, and inspire a positive change in opinions. We work to build authentic relationships and drive voter engagement, plus collect valuable information that improves our voter outreach strategy and make sure our message resonates with voters.
The purposes of these canvasses are twofold. First, we want to get people out to vote in the upcoming Democratic Primary (Election day is March 5 and early voting runs from February 20 – March 1). We want to get people in the habit of voting. As you are aware, the GOP is in power in Texas because Democrats have not gotten out to vote. This will be a critical election in maintaining democracy. Just look at what Abbott is doing at the Texas border right now, and how other GOP states are supporting him. This should make it clear what is at stake.
Second, we want to use the canvass to make people aware of the club and recruit more volunteers. The club should connect fellow Democrats for a sense of community, educate Democrats, and then activate Democrats to enact our values.
The plan is to meet at the West University Community Center located at 6104 Auden on Sunday February 4th. We will gather at 1:30 pm for training and set-up and then walk from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. We plan on canvassing the,Southampton and Southgate areas based on turnout. Later in February we will canvass West U, Southside and any unfinished areas of Houston.
Let us know if you are coming by responding via our website or sending us an email at WestUAreaDemocrats@gmail.com. Please plan on joining us in having fun and engaging with voters. We will provide the supplies and training. You just need to dress comfortably and bring your own water (if needed).
