Established in 2003, Working America reaches out to non-union working-class people about issues important to them. Year by year, we have been building membership and infrastructure. Working America now has 3.5 million members from working-class communities. We run a high-powered field canvass program, combining meaningful conversations at the door with analytics. We engage our members year-round, both in person and digitally, with calls to action, resources, and information about the political economy.
Our volunteers send personalized letters about kitchen-table issues, such as health care, affordable housing, and worker pay. Personalized letters increase the importance of these issues and frame how folks think about their civic engagement and voting. Our letters help build relationships with people who aren’t hearing from others in the movement for economic justice.
This session will teach you more about the cause and describe the upcoming letter writing party on September 8.
