It’s not too late to take action!

This is it. Nov. 3 is fast approaching, and we need your help to fire Betsy DeVos and elect friends of public education up and down the ticket.

If you’ve ever thought about volunteering for a campaign, now is the time. Our children’s future is at stake. We don’t get a do-over.

If you’re looking to make a difference, phone-banking (along with knocking doors) is one of the most impactful things you can do — and all you need to do it is your phone and personal computer!  Check out the specific activities below or fill out this form to let us know how you’re willing to help (someone will be in touch shortly after you fill out the form):

    • Almost every day — Dial or knock for the state House:  Friends of public education are close to taking a majority on the Michigan House of Representatives. Help put us over the finish line by knocking doors or making phone calls for a House candidate near you. Follow this link for a list of local opportunities.
    • Nearly every day — Take a walk for Joe: The Biden for President team has launched a safe canvassing operation and has scheduled team door-knocking events in communities across the state. They are using a drive-through process that allows everyone to social distance while also allowing volunteers to personally talk to voters.
