Help us Build a Better Colorado: Join the Colorado Democrats' People-to-People Canvassing Program

Hey Colorado: we're listening.

Here at the Colorado Democratic Party, we believe in the adage that all politics is local, and that the best ideas usually come from the bottom-up, not the top-down. That's why we're launching our People-to-People program and asking you to help us build a better Colorado. Instead of listening to the consultants or reading the polls, we want to hear directly from you and your neighbors about what's working and what's not.  Will you join us?

We're currently looking for volunteers in every community across the state to commit to going door-to-door to canvass and have in-depth conversations with people about their thoughts and priorities.  We want to ask the people directly and give voice to people to find out what they want to tell elected officials, what they want to see changed at the state or federal level, and how Colorado Democrats can do a better job responding to those concerns.
    Please fill out this form with your information if you are willing to become a People-To-People volunteer, listen, connect with people in a meaningful way and lift up their voices and concerns to all Colorado candidates and elected officials.  When you sign up here, someone from the Colorado Democratic Party will contact you with more details about how to get involved.

    (Volunteers will be trained and do not have to travel, unless they are willing to do so)
    The People-to-People program is just one part of the Colorado Democratic Party's approach to organizing. This summer, the CDP is holding a 12-stop listening and training tour to make sure we're hearing from every corner of the state, and sharing best practices on how to get involved and make a difference.
    Click here to participate in our feedback survey.

    By helping to organize your neighbors, you have the power to change the Democratic Party and help us build a better Colorado together.

    Thank you for all you do!

    VIDEO EDITING PROJECT:
    Put your video editing talent to work for our state house Democratic caucus!  If you can volunteer a few hours a week this summer (or beyond), you can help our Democratic members of the house of representatives get word out about affordable housing, healthcare, renewable energy, and other core priorities.  We need your help producing short videos for distribution via Facebook and other social media platforms.  It doesn't matter what editing software you like to use (e.g. iMovie, Final Cut, Premiere), just that you're interested to help out!  For more details or to get started please contact Kelly Watkins at [email protected]com.
