2020 PARTICIPATE PENNSYLVANIA General Election Training Webinars
A non-partisan community training series to help make sure that in 2020 everybody votes! The 2020 Presidential Election & the COVID-19 pandemic make this the most challenging year for civic participation in generations. Nonprofit organizations and neighborhood activists will play a critical role.
The Participate Pennsylvania training webinar series is here to provide your organization and your community with the basics and best practices to make a real difference in the 2020 General Election.

Participate PA is designed to expand the voter participation infrastructure by educating nonprofit & community-based organizations who don’t normally do the work, but have natural opportunities to connect with voters and infrequent/non-voting residents. Participate PA will connect voter participation resources from across the state and nation with respected, local organizations from communities in every area of Pennsylvania.

Learn what every organization should be doing this year to effectively increase voter participation – especially among our hardest-to-reach neighbors. In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, when we can’t safely door knock, we’ll help train & mobilize the organizations on whose doors potential voters are knocking for support in this time of greatest need.
