June Salon: Why the Biden Movement Needs You
Time & Location
About the event
When it comes to finding a strong candidate who will restore integrity to this country, we need to rally behind Joe Biden. He needs every one of us to get behind his campaign to make sure Trump is not re-elected.
Our June Salon will focus on how women across the U.S. can contribute to Biden’s campaign. We’ll train everyone on how to phone bank for Biden, which districts are crucial to reach, and the key pillars of Biden’s platform. The goal is for everyone to leave feeling prepared and energized to keep up this fight.
After our June Salon, we ask that everyone commit to volunteer for Biden -- whether it's through phone banking, writing postcards, reaching out to friends/family, or another channel. While group volunteering in person is not an option, we hope you can commit to take action at home and share your stories back on our email thread or at @PostMarchSalon on Instagram.
