Volunteer Recruitment

September 8
Electoral “Day of Recruitment” NEEDS YOU!!

Help turn our NorCal Blue Wave into a Tsunami!

WHAT IS IT? On Saturday, September 8, 2018, the NorCal BlueWave Alliance (NCBW) and Rock The Congress PAC will co-sponsor simultaneous all-day Volunteer Recruitment Fairs across Northern California.  At a 6-8 hour continuous recruitment event, we’ll provide:


  • Opportunities for attendees to meet local grass-roots activist groups
  • Short-format phone-banking, text-banking, canvassing introductions
  • Sign-ups for attendees to commit to specific actions

Our focus is to connect new volunteers with organizations as we take back Congress in November of 2018. We’ll guide new (and returning) volunteers toward relevant grass-roots organizations and activities. We’d love to see events happen in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, East, South and North Bay, the Napa Valley, Sacramento, the Central Valley, and in CA-01 and CA-04, and more!

WE NEED YOU!!! Contact events@norcalbluewave.org to start or join a committed group of local volunteers who work together to plan and execute the event in your sub-region.

NorCal BlueWave will launch a coordinated region-wide marketing campaign just after the June primary, encouraging as many new electoral volunteers as possible to show up ready to learn about and sign up for phone/text banking, canvassing and more!

WHAT WILL IT TAKE? You’ll have guidance and support from both Rock The Congress and NCBW to help create and organize the event. Here’s what we need from you:

  • Secure a Venue—ideally the largest free or low-cost venue in your area
  • Do Outreach to Local Grassroots Groups for tabling at the event
  • Perform Outreach to Local Media and the Community at large
  • Recruit Volunteers to organize and run the event
  • Optional: Secure Congressional speakers, local speakers, entertainment, etc.
WHAT SUPPORT WILL BE PROVIDED? Once an event-planning committee has formed, NCBW will provide:

  • A Host-an-Event Toolkit
  • Marketing Collateral (lawn signs, door hangers, handbills, etc.)
  • Lightweight $$
  • Weekly Event-Planning RoundTable call
