Working America is a community affiliate of the AFL-CIO. It is a non-partisan organization 501(c)(5) [union and PAC]. They do not engage in primaries, but pivot from issue canvassing to candidate persuasion after primaries. As the country’s most organized canvassing group, they engage in year-round canvassing with paid canvassers, going door-to-door not just in election years.
This year, WA will pilot volunteer programs in California with paid canvassers to be hired locally in Central California and will work with volunteers (this is where Bay Area volunteers are needed)
Working America is also considering launching a naturalization program, which could make citizenship training available in places where interested people would otherwise find it difficult or impossible to get to such classes.
Work with Working America to swing CA-District 10 and CA-District 21
