Janice Gay, Phonebank Manager at Center for Common Ground, joins Deepak Puri, CEO of The Democracy Labs, to address efforts at the local level to reach out to the BIPOC communities where voting is inconsistent.

  • Building trust and encouraging repeat involvement in community activities
  • Using social media and phone banks to recruit volunteers and attendees for events
