The zone that you wish to canvass will be led by one of our crisis team leaders.Make sure that you get the cell phone # of the leader you will be working with. You will meet with you leader on Saturday at the Moose.

We will then canvass in the afternoon from 1:00 to 3:30 pm with a debriefing at 4 pm at the Moose. You also have the option of canvassing in the morning and the afternoon with lunch on your own, and returning back to the Moose at 4 pm for debriefing.
We will supply you with a clipboard, talking points, our unified message, maps of your neighborhood zone, campaign message tri-fold, car and window signs, red ribbons and a limited number of yard signs.
Please were comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. If the resident is not home, then please leave our campaign tri-fold in their front door. Do not leave it in or on their mailbox.
The village of Plainfield and Joliet allow us to solicit door to door and speak with the residents. The village of Bollinbrook, only allows us leaving campaign information on the residents door, we cannot knock and speak to Bollingbrook residents without individual permits.
If you speak with a resident that is very interested in our cause, ask them for their personal information such as an email address or phone number. Ask them if they would be willing to speak publically at a Board meeting, write a letter to the Board or to the newspaper supporting our efforts to stop the outsourcing of 200 local jobs. ( We will supply you with a recording form)
We need your help to win this fight. Please spread the word, and have your co-workers,family and friends join us for canvassing.
