The opportunity

  • To fund this work, volunteers are hosting House Parties across the country.
  • These events have raised millions of dollars for local voter organizing.
  • Each virtual event requires a volunteer “Zoom Manager” to screen share, etc.
  • With enough Zoom Managers, we can organize hundreds of these events.
