Flip it Blue, our grand fundraiser!

Sunday, July 21, 2024

4-8pm at Sar-Ko-Par Park in Lenexa



Want to get involved right now in the election?  We need you to write postcards!  

Johnson County Move On is organizing a post card writing campaign.  They have “adopted” several races in Johnson County to support in various ways.  At the moment they are writing to new Democrats in Senate 10, who were moved there in the redistricting in 2022 to let them know that Andrew Mall is running to represent them.  

You need to purchase post cards and stamps.  Al Frisby will send you a list of about 30 names to address and talking points to write in the body.  Email Al at  alfrisbyformerriam@gmail.com
Purchase post card stamps at USPS.com
Amazon has post cards for sale, both blank and with “vote” images

We are the one’s we have been waiting for.

Connecting new volunteers with experienced canvassers

helps to create social connections and cohesion in our organization. 

Everyone should attend the canvassing training – at least to know how we are talking to residents of JOCO and maybe to refine how you approach your friends and relatives as well.  


Our experienced canvassers have had a wide variety of training, and some have never had formal training. We now have a JoCo Dem Data Team that can utilize the data we collect at the door. If we want to collect valid and reliable data, we need to standardize our data collection methods across Senate Districts.   Canvass Training Dates:

Wed, 4/24, 6-8pm   Sun, 4/28, 2-4pm   Sat, 5/11, 2-4pm

The location for all 3 sessions will be the Carmack Room at the Central Resource Library on 87th.
