Come Canvass with NCPA!

  • Learn more about local issues
  • Explore our neighborhoods
  • Help build a more progressive Humboldt

The North Coast People’s Alliance is working to make a difference from the ground up by walking door-to-door, asking people about their community’s most pressing issues, and hearing their ideas for solutions.

Put on some comfortable walking shoes and join us at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 3 at the Labor Temple, 840 E St., Eureka.

We provide training and materials, and we pair people up in teams of two.

Our canvassers begin with open-ended questions, listening deeply and non-judgmentally. Then we ask follow-up questions about how well local elected officials are addressing the issues people care about. The answers will help ​NCPA determine​ ​our ​courses​ ​of​ ​action​ ​in​ ​2018​ ​campaigns, on both issues and elected offices. Plus, people appreciate that NCPA is seeking their views. One​ ​pair​ ​of​ ​canvassers​ ​was​ ​so​ ​well​ ​received​ ​they​ ​were​ ​given​ ​fresh eggs​ ​by​ ​the​ ​family​ ​being​ ​interviewed!

Before the canvass, don’t miss our New Volunteer Orientation at 9:30 a.m. followed by our next General Meeting starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3, at the Labor Temple in Eureka.
