Chelsa Wagner Campaign
Volunteers are needed to help work the polls, door-knock, make phone calls and more on election day. Please call Angela at 412-207-7908 to sign up to help on election day. Call for Change
MoveOn is making it possible for you to help and never leave your home.

Phone volunteers are the backbone of Call for Change. As a phone volunteer, you’ll start right away phoning progressive voters in targeted congressional districts. They’ll tell you who to call and what to say. Your calling can be from home (whenever it fits your schedule) and at neighborhood calling parties. You commit to calling:

  • one hour a week between now and November (talking to ~10 voters/wk.)
  • one hour a day for the last four days before the election, and
  • two hours on Election Day, November 7th.

    NOTE: The above does not represent an endorsement from DfP for any particular campaign.

    Buffalo Blues
