Changing the Conversation Together (CTC) is an exciting organization that uses Deep Canvassing to grow a compassionate, inclusive electorate.  Deep canvassing is a way to engage voters emotionally and is the most effective form of voter persuasion that’s ever been measured. Our canvassing helped flip Staten Island in 2018, Pennsylvania in 2020, and Georgia in 2021.  And we’ve built a community of trained volunteers dedicated to learning, disseminating, and expanding this work.  Our campaigns have been featured in the NY Times, the Nation, WNYC/NPR, The American Prospect, NowThisNews and the book Politics Is For Power.
