We built Reach for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign as a tool for ourselves after we realized traditional door-to-door canvassing methods were limiting who we were talking to and when we were able to effectively collect data in the field. Reach allowed us to canvass in the streets, subway stops, and community events in so many new ways that it revolutionized the way we connected with voters. Despite deploying the tool to our team only a few weeks before Alexandria’s primary, by election day, we had logged over 10% of our overall voter IDs using it. This is a part of how we won, and now we want to share it with other progressive campaigns.
When I wear a campaign shirt or buttons and someone calls me out saying “Oh, I love Alexandria!” I just pull out my phone and say “Cool! Can I add you as a supporter?” and quickly add them to our system. We are gathering data on the street that gets sent right back to the campaign. We can now build power everywhere.
Anyone can download Reach and create an account, but the action begins when your campaign joins the app. Check with your campaign to see if they’re using Reach yet so they can get you plugged in. You can join as many campaigns as you like with the same Reach account.
If you are a representative of a righteous progressive campaign who is interested in using Reach to revolutionize your field efforts, please hit us up at email@example.com. We are rolling the app out to select campaigns as quickly as we are able to build capacity, so we make no guarantee of access, but we’re happy to begin the conversation.
