Gabby Giffords & Navy Combat Veteran and Ret. Astronaut Captain Mark Kelly Rally (CA48)
October 14, 2018 @12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us at our Huntington Beach Office where we will be joined by Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and Navy Combat Veteran and Retired Astronaut Captain Mark Kelly as part of their Vote Save Lives tour! Gabby and Mark have done amazing work fighting gun violence and have endorsed Harley Rouda for Congress.
The event will begin at 12:00 PM at our Huntington Beach Office. Harley Rouda, Gabby Giffords, and Mark Kelly will speak to the assembled volunteers. Then, we’ll transition into the canvassing portion of the event.
Canvassing is easy, and it is the most effective tactic for winning elections. It’s okay if you’ve never done this before –- we will have a training at the beginning. Then, we’ll head out to talk with voters about the election on Tuesday, November 6th, and the importance of voting. The event will end at 5:00 at the same location, with water and snacks for the canvassers.
We’ll debrief about the canvass and talk about upcoming volunteer events! When you RSVP, please include your email address and phone number so we can provide updates and contact you during the canvass. We won’t share the info, but we really need to be able to reach you.
Here are a few tips for an awesome canvass experience: 1. Bring a cartload of your friends and your smile! 2. Bring your fully charged smartphone (or a tablet works, too) and download the PDI Mobile Connect app on your device. 3. Bring your water bottle, sunscreen, hat, and comfortable shoes for walking. Everything else you need will be provided, included snacks and extra water.
Thank you and we’re excited to see you there!
