Illinois Greens --
Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka are taking their message to the people!
The Jill2016 campaign has a CallHub phone banking system that any volunteer can access, any time during call hours, to begin making calls immediately. This is one of the most important ways that the Green Party can reach individual voters!
To get involved as a phonebanker, go to http://www.jill2016.com/phonebanking. The webpage will help you register with the CallHub software system and run you through a simple tutorial. Once your account is active, you can go to the Illinois campaign (currently labeled "IL - Phonebanker Sign-Ups") and click "Join Campaign" to start making calls.
This is campaign support that anyone can do, from literally anywhere with a phone and an internet connection! It's a powerful tool and we want to recruit as many people as possible to use it in the coming weeks.
Can you help us reach the millions of voters who deserve a Green change in America? Sign up at the Jill2016 Phonebanking website to get involved today!
