Changing The Conversation Together (CTC) is dedicated to deep canvassing as a tool for building a more inclusive democracy and a progressive majority.
Deep canvassing—where we connect face-to-face with potential voters by sharing stories—is the most effective form of voter persuasion ever measured.
CTC’s pilot deep canvassing campaign helped flip a GOP stronghold district in Staten Island to blue in 2018. In 2020, CTC shifted focus to Pennsylvania, a crucial battleground during the presidential election. That year, unlikely voters that CTC canvassers spoke with voted at a 10% higher rate than their comparable neighbors.
In the midterm elections in 2022, our impact was even bigger – the voters we spoke with voted at a rate that was 15% higher than their neighbors!
As we head into 2024, CTC’s goal is to build on and expand this promising work into other crucial battleground areas where we know these margins could make a difference between winning and losing crucial campaigns. In order to do so, we’re helping organizations train canvassers and launch their own deep canvassing programs.
CTC is an independent 501(c)(4) Social Welfare organization. Our mission is to engage unlikely voters in authentic conversations in order to strengthen democracy and promote justice.
