    Do that. Write about it. ALICE is important.

    Followed.

      I just saw a diary about it a few weeks ago. But I did canvass door-to-door with VPIRG this summer. Does that count for anything?

        Taking action is important, as is funding left-wing groups.

        Next time you're looking at canvassing, I'd suggest checking out Public Outreach. They pay better, and they offer healthcare.

        •  It was just a summer job (1+ / 0-)

          and I live near the canvass office. And I have healthcare already (Obama may be a ringing disappointment on most fronts, but we have Obamacare! Plus VT is on the path to single-payer, though it'll be a few years). Public Outreach goes year-round, I assume?

          •  They do summer work too. (0+ / 0-)

            And unlike most canvassing groups, they won't fire you if you do great for a month and then have a bad week.
