Become a Neighborhood Leader

Become a Neighborhood Leader — Claim your PrecinctThis will be an ongoing community engagement program but is critical right now.  Ultimately, it will result in better voter turnout (Napa’s Primary only had 39.5% turnout) and support for our Democratic values and candidates. Sign up!

Volunteers with our Grassroots Organizing (GO) Team connect with registered voters in their own neighborhood/precinct by walking door-to-door or making phone calls.  Starting a dialog and building a relationship with your neighbors.

By engaging voters one-on-one all year long, we also learn about the issues of concern to them, answer questions, and provide volunteer engagement opportunities and education based on those issues.  These Neighborhood Leaders are really the backbone of the GO team.

Our Neighborhood Leaders that have claimed their precinct can work with a friend or another Neighborhood Leader in their precinct or they can work on their own.

We provide training, support, and the materials you’ll need to talk to Democratic-friendly voters.  If you’d like to come to one of our Volunteer Activation meetings to find out more, they are every Wednesday night at 5:30 pm at 434 Montgomery Street. 

Sign up here to become a Neighborhood Leader and we will contact you on how to get started!

Image result for eleni kounalakisEleni Kounalakis, Lt. Governor candidate                                 We are privileged to have an amazing candidate for Lt. Governor,  Eleni Kounalakis, coming to meet us and walk Napa!  The Democrats of Napa Valley endorsed her and she would be the FIRST woman to be ELECTED Lt. Governor in California’s 160 years…and only the 2nd woman to serve.  Come and meet Eleni and let’s help get her elected!  Help us deliver her literature to homes in Napa to spread the word.
Eleni has been endorsed by US Senator Kamala Harris who says:

“Ambassador Eleni Kounalakis has dedicated her life to the fight for California values. She is a powerful advocate for immigrants, economic innovation and job creation, and providing all with access to quality and affordable health care. Eleni has the vision and conviction necessary to boldly and wisely lead California into the future. I am proud to support Eleni for Lt. Governor.”

— U.S. Senator Kamala Harris 

Ambassador Kounalakis is the daughter of an immigrant farmworker, has been a Democratic activist most of her life, and was appointed Ambassador to Hungary by President Obama.
Let’s give her a huge showing and turn out Napa supporters in a big way for her!!  Making things happen will give you, and all of us, the adrenaline we all want to make the biggest impact we can for this critical election.  We will be walking the neighborhoods and handing out information from her.
Where: Fuller Park in Napa at the corner of Laurel and Jefferson Streets.
When:  We meet up Saturday, May 19 @ 9:30 am 
Looking forward to seeing you!!
