Sangeeth Peruri of OutreachCircle
As a remote first company, OutreachCircle has experience with virtual organizing. Clients have used our affinity peer-to-peer texting and Supporter Action Hub to coordinate volunteers and run virtual trainings and canvassing programs, and our relational organizing tools make it easy to use proven GOTV tactics like vote tripling. Published research on the effect of relational organizing on down ballot elections has shown up to a 20% impact on turnout.
We’ve compiled tips and advice for how to successfully organize while social distancing with OutreachCircle on our website, and we’ve also recorded a webinar on relational organizing’s effect on down ballot races that can be viewed on YouTube.
