Introduction to Deep Canvassing: The Proven Method to Change Hearts and Minds Are you an organizer, community leader, or just someone looking to engage with your community around deeply polarizing issues? Learn how to have compassionate, non-judgmental conversations across lines of difference with this powerful technique.

WASHINGTON, D.C.–People’s Action Executive Director Sulma Arias released the following statement today following news that Donald Trump was convicted of 34 felony counts:

“Everyday people held Trump accountable for his crimes today–despite his worst efforts, Trump is not above the law.

“The simple fact remains: We must beat him at the ballot box. Trump is still running for president, and if he wins, he would likely try to pardon himself–and the Supreme Court, which he stacked with MAGA justices, would be the only appeal if he did so.

“This election is a choice between two futures: a corporate takeover of the country with a would-be dictator at the head, or a future in which working class people build a true multiracial democracy and well-being for everyone. Organizing will make the difference; we won’t take our eye off the ball. 

“We need everyone who cares about our families, our freedoms, and our future to join the fight.”

Bernie Sanders for president, we completed a national forum series that The Nation called “the most in-depth, people-powered forum” of the 2020 cycle.”
