Team Richmond Needs You!
350 Bay Area activists are urgently needed to join Richmond residents in an all-day canvassing blitz, Richmond Rising, to support Mike Parker, Gayle McLaughlin and Eduardo Martinez in their progressive races for mayor and city council. The goal: to knock on 1,000 doors in a single day. Come on out and do good work for the community and climate, and then join us for a party afterward.
Chevron has already bought up every billboard in the city of Richmond, and will likely pour millions into its campaign to defeat the candidates who are fighting hard to transform this refinery town into a model green city. The only thing standing in Chevron's way is people power—and that means all of us. We'll have two canvassing shifts:
- 10 am - 2 pm (arrive at 9:30 am for the briefing)
- 1 pm - 5 pm (arrive at 12:30 pm for the briefing)
There will be some light refreshments, but come prepared for an active day of canvassing! Return to the Bobby Bowens Center and party from 5:30 pm on.
