Deep Canvassing: The Proven Method to Change Hearts and Minds! Do you want to have compassionate, non-judgmental conversations across lines of difference? This session introduces the core components of deep canvassing.

PORTLAND, Maine – Wednesday, members of the Maine People’s Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership will deliver health care messages stuffed inside empty pill bottles to Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) urging her to reject any plan that repeals the Affordable Care Act and cuts Medicaid.

The delivery comes as Senate Republicans are reportedly beginning to coalesce around a version of a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and end federal Medicaid expansion. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated his desire to bring a bill to the Senate floor before the recess starts July 3.
