About Us

Founded in 2017, CTC is the only organization building a corps of deep canvassers to stop President Trump. CTC played a critical role in the 2018 midterms, training over 250 volunteers and completing 2000 conversations to support Max Rose, the Democrat who won an upset victory in New York’s 11th Congressional District, as celebrated in this NowThisNews video.

Deep canvassing is a respectful form of voter engagement based on face to face respectful dialogue and story telling. It’s also the most effective form of voter persuasion ever measured. Deep Canvassing’s effectiveness has been demonstrated through rigorous academic studies of its impact on ballot initiatives, and CTC is the first organization to faithfully replicate the technique in partisan elections. 

Millions of Americans are terrified and angry because of Trump’s presidency, but feel paralyzed and helpless to do anything about it. The Democratic primary will likely grind on for months, with potential for sowing division among people who oppose Trump. CTC is connecting with people and mobilizing them to take collective action to stop Trump now through election day and beyond. 

In the first quarter of 2020, CTC built momentum with more volunteers and donors as well as enthusiastic coverage in the NYTimes, and the American Prospect. In the last 6 months, CTC recruited and trained hundreds of volunteers that have knocked on thousands of doors of swing voters and infrequent voters in Pennsylania – a key swing state in the presidential election. CTC is seeking to recruit and train hundreds of additional volunteers to have thousands and thousands of conversations in Pennsylvania before November. CTC is also seeking to partner with national canvassing organizations and use Pennsyvlania as a national Deep Canvassing training center.
