Deep Canvassing Event in Madison


WI PNHP is hosting a training event on Deep Canvassing, open to all single-payer health care activists.
You will be trained in DEEP CANVASSING (see below for more details) and then have the opportunity to use your new skills by canvassing immediately following the training session. The event will end with a 1 hour debriefing to discuss our experiences.

The Deep Canvassing model was shown to be extremely effective in a randomized controlled trial studying a trans rights advocacy effort and was later adapted by the California Nurses Association to use for SP advocacy.
