Young Black and Latinx Voters Will Decide the Future of the United States of America in 2020.

Reaching voters under 30 years of age in communities of color is critical to our democracy including their voices. Open Progress’ Text Troop is working to reach over 4 million of these Millenials and Zoomers in over 12 battleground states such as North Carolina, Georgia, Wisconsin - and we need your help to make sure they register and vote!

Text Troop Creates Lasting, Progressive Change Through the Power
of Human-to-Human, Digital Conversation.

Open Progress is a non-profit (c4) that envisions an America that talks with each other - not at each other - to power sustainable, long-term progress. We are a diverse virtual community of committed volunteers from across the country who are engaging in issue-focused and voting education conversations with voters via person-to-person text messages.

WHAT IS TEXT BANKING?

Text banking is a volunteer safe, virtual method of contacting voters via text message to inform and mobilize to the polls. Texting does not use your cell phone or your personal phone number. We text from our web browser-based platform, TextOut , that is accessible by PC or Mobile.

WHO ARE WE TEXTING?

Text Troop is working in partnership with Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA), North Carolina Democratic Party, Michigan Democratic Party, Vote [dot] org, and more to get out the vote this November.


Texting is happening right now and all year long! WHEN ARE YOU TEXTING? HOW CAN I HELP?

Get started today, connect with Ptosha Davis at ptosha@openprogress.com or book a group training at https://calendly.com/text-troop/schedule-a-group-training

Mission Statement

Open Progress, a 501 (c)4 works to unlock the power of digital human connection for progressive change in America. Be it at the ballot box, in legislative chambers big and small, or on the stoops, sidewalks, and streets of our neighborhoods, humans in conversation with one another - in person, in-text message, and on social media - will bring about the change we seek. We aim to harness this interconnected power of all our human connections.

Description

The Open Progress Text Troop is a diverse community of committed volunteers from across the country who are engaging in issue-focused conversations with voters via person-to-person text messages. Here’s some of the work we do:

  • Encourage citizens across the country, whether English or Spanish-speaking, to register to vote

  • Persuade and identify their support for our causes and candidates

  • Help voters find their polling locations

Our volunteers are trained by the best in order to create rich conversations with a better-informed electorate. Worried you don’t have time? Even just 2 hours a week will allow you reach thousands of people.
