Wichita Canvass to Expand Medicaid
April 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
We’re knocking doors in Senator Susan Wagle’s district to engage her constituents on Medicaid expansion. New to canvassing? We’ll train you!
Why: Senator Wagle is using her leadership position to obstruct any discussion or vote on Medicaid expansion. Because Medicaid expansion would likely pass if it did come up for a vote, she is denying over 150,000 of our neighbors life-saving healthcare.
On May 1st, there will be an attempt to vote on Medicaid Expansion. This may be the only time the Senate votes on Medicaid Expansion in 2019 and we need to ramp up pressure ahead of the vote.
Where: Urban League of Kansas
2418 E 9th N, Wichita, KS 67214
When: Saturday, April 20th – 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Logistics: Training and instruction is available for new canvassers will take 30 minutes and is available throughout the day.
Come pick up a 2-hour shift (or more) as you are able this Saturday between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Volunteers should head to the Urban League to grab materials and a walking assignment. Canvassers will report back to the league whenever they complete their shift throughout the day.
What to bring:
– walking shoes
– your smart phone, fully charged*
– friends and family
*We have some tablets and physical turf packets available if you do not have a smart phone
Future dates to canvass include: Saturday, April 27th, and Sunday, April 28th. Experienced volunteers may canvass throughout the week. Just ask Haley: firstname.lastname@example.org
