Organizing Corps 2020

Organizing Corps 2020 or OC2020 has been launched as a ground-Game strategy that leverages the up-swell in volunteer enthusiasm and voter engagement since the last presidential election.

OC2020 is planning to use a strategy of placing diverse canvassers in their own diverse neighborhoods to talk to their friends, neighbors, families and likely voters of similar diverse background, and to encourage them to get out and vote for the Democratic candidate.

Organizing Corps 2020 will recruit, pay, and train young people to work on the 2020 presidential cycle, starting in 2019.
