Join Knock Every Door, a progressive organization that recruits door-to-door canvassers willing to talk about candidates and issues that matter.
Knock Every Door was born in the wake of the 2016 election. It acts on research that shows that face-to-face conversations are the most effective way to get voters to the polls.
It supports volunteer door-knockers through training, providing materials, and helping with data entry. The organization allows local groups a great deal of flexibility over which issues to pursue. It exerts more control over canvassing for candidates; they do not canvass for Republicans and they may choose to back individual Democrats in a primary.
