What is the goal of the Big Tent Event?
Our goal is to help organize citizens around their candidate of choice and offer DPOE resources to these grassroots candidate groups. We will help train candidate groups on phone banking, canvassing, social media outreach skills along with granting office time to give these groups a home-base to plan, organize and campaign from.
Please come. Grassroots support is essential to creating a strong candidate campaign.
What if I don’t know who I support yet?
Our Big Tent Event is a great opportunity to learn more about each of the candidates running for the Presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. We will have self-researched issues sheets for every candidate and you will have the opportunity to talk to your neighbors and hear why they are supporting their candidate of choice. We can not stress enough how important grassroots support is at this stage of the campaign and how important it is we all learn as much as we can about these candidates and come together to support the right candidate for the 2020 presidential race.
