This past Sunday, 18 intrepid NYC’ers set out for Pleasantville, New York to help turn the New York State Senate blue! MYD joined with Greater NYC for Change and Citizen Action NY to knock on doors for State Senate candidate Justin Wagner, this year’s best chance for a Democratic pick-up.
As canvassing goes, you can’t do much better than the Hudson Valley in the fall. We broke up into teams of two and headed out on foot to talk to voters. A lot of people weren’t home (hey, it was a beautiful day!) but the people we did talk to were very nice, and there was a lot of support for Justin. All told we knocked on over 500 doors!
Of course, the day wouldn’t have been complete without lunch at the Pleasantville Diner.
There are 22 days until the election, and there are still plenty of opportunities to help. Interested in volunteering in the next few weeks? Check out one of these great events:
