About Us
Mission: 

Changing the Conversation Together is an organization of concerned citizens building a national corps of deep canvassers.
Deep canvassing is a way to engage voters emotionally and is the most effective form of voter persuasion that’s ever been measured.

Programs: 

ENGAGE

We believe it is critical for Americans to engage civilly with each other, regardless of party affiliation. So first, our volunteers initiate conversations with voters about the direction of our country and the significance of the upcoming elections.

LISTEN

Next, we share stories about the people we care about – and how politicians’ actions affect them. Even more important, we listen to voters’ stories about the people they care about. Often, we often find shared values and concerns.

ACTIVATE

Finally, we make the case for voting Democratic in the upcoming elections. This isn’t about party affiliation. It is about opposing hate, upholding basic decency, and defending the checks and balances that are critical to democracy.

Why Work For Us?: 

Changing the Conversation Together (CTC) is building a national corps of deep canvassers, in order to grow an electorate that embraces compassion and inclusion. Deep canvassing is a form of voter engagement based on face-to-face, empathetic conversations. It’s also the most effective form of voter persuasion ever measured. Our canvassing helped flip Staten Island in 2018, Pennsylvania in 2020, and Georgia in 2021. And we’ve built a community of trained volunteers dedicated to learning, disseminating, and expanding this work.  Our campaigns have been featured in the NY Times, the Nation, WNYC/NPR, The American Prospect, NowThisNews and the book Politics Is For Power.
