    Leipzig Phone Banking Party - Democrats Abroad Leipzig-Halle

    Democrats Abroad Leipzig-Halle is getting out the vote!

    Join our phone banking party and help us reach our goal of contacting all of our members for the Global Presidential Primary in Leipzig. We will be reaching out to voters to make sure they know how to register in 2020 and inform them about our Democrats Abroad primary voting center. Snacks and drinks will be provided!
     
    Phone banking is easy and straightforward. All you will need is your computer – **not a tablet**, **not a smartphone** – and headphones, if you have a set. At the beginning of each phone banking party we will have a training session, so newcomers are very welcome!
     
    You can get a head start (or just call on your own!) by signing up here: https://www.democratsabroad.org/voter_support_team

    RSVP Required

    The event will be held at a private home, so please RSVP below if you are planning on attending the phone banking party on Thursday, February 20, 2020, and we will send you the exact address.
     
    You can help out by sharing this event with your American friends and acquaintances in the Leipzig-Halle area! As always, we welcome new faces, even if you've never attended a meeting or an event before.
     
    Looking forward to see you there!
