Turn PA Blue

Partners

It’s inspiring how many groups are coming together and organizing – and also a little overwhelming. Here, we’ve listed a few of the groups we’ve connected with. While not a comprehensive list of every group in our area, it’s a good place to start if you want to get more involved and connect with other people working toward positive change in their communities.

Volunteer Information

POSTCARD PROGRAM

Many of our candidates are looking for volunteers to help prepare personal, handwritten postcards to the voters in their districts. Personal postcards are a fun, creative and cost-effective way to help our candidates reach EVERY voter.

CANVASSING PROGRAM

Not all superheroes wear capes. Some wear comfortable shoes and save our democracy one door knock at a time. Here’s why you should give it a try: canvassing is the most effective way to identify support, persuade undecideds, and increase voter turnout. We understand that it’s also intimidating for many volunteers. Turn PA Blue wants to give you the information you need to master the art of the door knock. We promise, these face-to-face conversations with your fellow citizens will be meaningful, rewarding, and fun. Canvasses for state races are especially exciting because the candidates are often there to canvass with us and to talk about why they are running for office. This is democracy up close and personal! You can see yourself making a difference!

Actively Engaged Democracy

ACTIVELY ENGAGED DEMOCRACY

A Federated Network Website Project

Turn PA Blue is helping with a massive online project called Actively Engaged Democracy, or AEDem for short. The goal of this project is to eliminate the duplication of efforts while providing platforms for collaboration efforts.  In essence, consolidating into one platform what is now completely fragmented and disorganized. In other words, it would create a nationwide federated website network that offers template websites on the network to all groups (and candidates) across the country for those that choose to utilize it.

This is a massive project that will take many months with an extremely large price tag, as nothing currently exists that can handle the creation of such a network.  We are raising funds to make this project a reality as we truly believe it could transform how we connect to voters and engage them in all aspects of the democratic process.  If you are interested in supporting this project, please consider donating to assist in its creation.  Click here to donate via an ActBlue link.

If you’re interested in getting involved and helping with this endeavor, fill out the form below or contact Brian at burychka@AEDem.US
