Let My People GOTV - Bus from NYC

Let My People GOTV in Philadelphia!

Canvass in Philadelphia with dozens of other progressive Jews who want to make a difference in this election. We’ll provide transportation from New York City on a comfortable bus, lodging, and some meals. When we get to the field office, our partner at America Votes will provide training and strategic talking points before we head out in pairs to speak with voters at their doors.

Elections in swing states are often won or lost on who turns out to vote — and in-person contact with voters is the most effective way to get them to the polls. We will be going door to door ensuring that voters know their polling locations and hours, and encouraging them to vote in early voting.

Bus information: Travel time from New York to Philadelphia is approximately 2.5 hours. The bus will be equipped with wireless internet, bathroom and will be inclusive for all including people with disabilities.

Accommodations: We will be providing overnight accommodations in double-occupancy hotel rooms for participants on the bus. Participants will be asked to self-select roommates on the bus. If you require a single room, please contact the organizer listed below by Oct. 25.

Meals: When possible we will arrange to eat together, and will make sure there are breaks for meals with restaurant options nearby, but you should plan to pay for your own meals. We will provide some snacks and water for the long rides on the bus.

What to pack: Pack for a 2 day, one night trip. Please bring:

  • Comfortable clothes for two days of activity and sneakers for walking door to door
  • A water bottle, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, anything else you need for a full day outdoors
  • A backpack or tote bag to bring while canvassing
  • Extra socks, sleepwear, and warm clothes (it may be cool at night or you may be in air-conditioned places)
  • Snacks
  • Chutzpah!
