Virtual Phone Banks

MARCH 12, 2020 -- In light of the developments surrounding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the public health emergency in Wisconsin, we will be temporarily shifting away from in-person phone banks and door-to-door operations. Instead, we will be conducting virtual phone banks in addition to our traditional communication tools to reach union members regarding the upcoming Spring Election on April 7, 2020.

At this time, it is essential we prioritize the health and well-being of our members and our communities while continuing to educate our members about the candidates on the ballot this spring.

How to Participate in Virtual Phone Banks

All that is needed to participate in a virtual phone bank is a phone and a computer with internet access. Through the AFL-CIO's Virtual Phone Bank system, volunteers will be able to login on a computer, view a script to discuss our Wisconsin AFL-CIO endorsed Supreme Court candidate Jill Karofsky and the relevant local-endorsed candidates, connect with union voters, and record the results of their calls. When you sign up for a phone shift, you’ll be provided with a login and a full set of instructions. AFL-CIO staff will be available by phone during call shifts to answer any questions.

Alternative Times Available

If you would like to make phone calls outside of the scheduled shifts located within the wisaflcio.org/mobilize link, please note that on your signup form. Given the unique nature of the current situation, we will accommodate calling outside the set schedule.

The April 7 election for Wisconsin Supreme Court and all of our local endorsed candidates is a critical election. Our values as union members are on the ballot. The Wisconsin AFL-CIO will continue to build a strong program while being nimble as we adapt to the rapid changes taking place in our communities. This is a difficult time and we are up to the challenge.

Together in unity, we will do the work to elect candidates who stand up for working people in Wisconsin.
