Metro Detroit for Bernie is heading to Flint for the Democratic Debate on March 6th! We want a huge 4 Bernie presence, so please join us, with your signs, t-shirts, and anything else you can think of. As part of this event, we are CANVASSING all day up until the rally. Before you head to the Whiting for the rally, head to the Flint campaign office to canvas or phone bank. You can also canvas and phone bank at any of the other Michigan campaign office locations. A list of the campaign offices is provided below as well as links to the canvassing events for each office. This is a REALLY important part of the event! Because it's so close to the Michigan primary, we need EVERYONE out canvassing and phone banking for our big GOTV (Get Out The Vote) push! *Schedule* GOTV Canvassing: 9am-6:00pm Some offices have designated GOTV shifts, 9:00am, 12pm, 3:00pm and 6:00pm. You are encouraged to sign up for a specific shift where available, but don't let these shift times stop you from volunteering if they don't work with your schedule! Come to an office whenever you can and help out! Even if you can only make it to an office for an hour before you head to the rally, hey, that's an hour of phone banking you can do! It's ALL so important! We've provided links below to specific GOTV events. (IMPORTANT: Not all offices are equipped with enough computers for everyone to phone bank, so if you plan on phone banking, bring your lap top, smart phone and chargers for both) Rally: 6:00pm-8:00pm Meet us between 6:00 and 6:30 at the designated staging area(s) which will be announced soon! Bring your signs, your noise makers, and your cheer! Debate Watch Parties: 8:00pm Once the debate begins there will be several places you can go to watch with fellow Berners. If you canvassed in Flint earlier in the day, head back to the Flint campaign office for their debate watch party! Remember, this is only if you had canvassed in Fint earlier in the day. If you canvassed in a city other than Flint, no worries! We will have several locations for you to enjoy the debate that will be in the area. More info on those locations soon! Carpooling: If you want to carpool with someone in your area, take the city survey below and then connect with the others who have also added their name to your city / region.
