Volunteer for Janeese
We are running a people-powered campaign—and we need your help to win! The safety of our community and our team is more important than anything else. We are working to safely keep the campaign active and voters engaged with us. Join us!
We’ve rolled out a setup for volunteers to phonebank from home. We have shifts and trainings taking place every single day! Each shift will start with a 30 minute training session for new volunteers, after which you are free to make calls any time you choose.
Shifts are weekdays from 4:30 — 8:30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6pm. After your first shift, you can make calls whenever is convenient for you.
Voting Center Volunteers
Sign up to be visible for Janeese outside a Voting Center any day from May 22 to June 2. Maximum safety precautions will be taken to protect volunteers and voters, but we ask that only those of you feeling healthy take part in this action. Choose your location to sign up for a shift:
Four For 4
Form a Ward 4 squad and make sure you and three friends or neighbors have all the info you need to vote safely this year.
Keeping Each Other Safe
Washing your hands, social distancing, and staying home are the best ways most of us can help right now — but there is plenty of other aid and support happening in our community. Here’s the comprehensive list of meal sites for students as well as the list of meal sites for seniors. Know your rights: evictions and late fees are prohibited during the state of emergency. If you’ve been laid off, you can file for unemployment insurance. If you run a small business impacted by the shutdown you can apply for economic injury disaster loans. If you need help with groceries or errands, check out this list of neighborhood volunteers in Petworth and Takoma (or sign up to volunteer). The most comprehensive source for more information is coronavirus.dc.gov and more resources are being shared each day. If you know of other resources community members should know about, email us and we’ll signal boost them.
