In the past few years I've volunteered for both Bernie and Hillary block walking and phone banking. After the narcassist stole the election I got involved with Stonewall Democrats of Dallas, my home base, and have been marching, organizing and reaching out since. I did a lot of blockwalking for Omar Narvaez and some for Phillip Kingston and Lori Kirkpatrick, as well as poll greeting in 2017 local elections and have served on the board of Stonewall since Jan 2017. In the past few months I've phone banked for Victoria Neave, helped get people deputized and registered folks to vote at the Women's March and have been helping with Stonewall Endorsements and Communications. I don't do much.
I live in a very heavily Democratic Precinct. I'd like to get everyone registered and identify their passions and interest in order to get them involved in helping our local candidates get elected and become more informed and engaged in the process. I'd like to identify community leaders and have a team that is ready to get Beto elected as well as preparing themselves to run in the future. Moslty, I'd like to focus on a few key races and help flip those seats (looking at you Huffines and lyin Ted). I just want to do everything I can possibly do to usher in a blue wave elction that Republicans will never forget and never recover from--a wave so large that the only Republicans left standing will be forced to reevaluate their bigotry.
All of them. My precinct is very walkable so my first goal would be to knock on every door and get everyone registered and identified in the Voter Activiation Network as Democrats or leaning Dems. Simultaneously, I'd be indetifying potential volunteers and yard sign recipients for campaigns. After getting out the vote for primaries, democrats in my precinct will be identified in the general database due to their voting in a democratic primary and we can expand our volunteer teams and do it all over again for the general...maybe helping neighborhing precincts who still have some voter reg and/or organizing to do. Also I'd do phone banks, social media outreach, mailers and community events. Whatever it takes.
I think folks are concerned about income inequality and rising poverty in my precinct but I could be projecting. Petty crimes such as vehicle breakins are an issue and I know EVERYONE hates the 15 red light cameras on Belt Line. I believe with some information on how crime escalates due to an inadequate system of education and providing oportunities to young folks and the moraly reprehensible school to prison pipeline, people will realize how criticle it is to get involved and hold our representatives accountable. Other than that, I personally have a problem with how much trash I'm seeing on 67 and even in my neighborhood. We need to allow folks to do community service on 67 and hold our private trash service accountable for their mess.
