How You Can Help - Be A Volunteer
"I know this probably sounds crazy but being in a position to have my finger on the pulse, so to speak, makes a huge difference. The news media tells you one thing – but when you're in the trenches and you're seeing the activity that goes on day-to-day and the people that are either working the campaign or promising to vote for Beto – it gives you hope because you can see the actual change taking place. I decided that I was going to be proactive and do everything that I could to make sure that this man is elected and it has given me a sense of purpose. It is giving me a sense of power and it has given me a sense of peace knowing that however it turns out, I gave it everything that I had in order to try and make a difference. If you are one of those who feels like you can't make a difference, you're wrong. You can. Find a candidate in your district who's on the same page that you are. Support them! Get involved with their campaign! They can't do it alone and if we want change, then we are going to have to bring that change about through our involvement."
There has been frustration. Anger. Hopelessness. We don’t all react the same way. Some of us have seen our daily lives shift – joining every march, watching every news clip, reading every "tweet" and every tantrum. Others have had to shut out the noise and disengage, resigned in your belief that you have no power and no voice, so why listen?
Every person’s voice HAS power. There are so many ways to find and use your voice – and be a part of the Blue Wave. That is really what we’re crowdsourcing here – the ability to focus and use our power for good. It takes time and it takes effort – we can actively and responsibly engage with information, be well-informed by sharing and listening, and — ultimately — contribute to re-energizing our communities by helping elect genuine government representation.
Use your power. You’re already here – ready to volunteer. So take the next steps:

- Each of our candidate profiles have short biographies and provide direct links to the candidate’s webpage – including shortcuts to their Twitter feed and volunteer sign-up pages.
- Visit their campaign website.
- Learn more – about your district, issues, candidates.
Get BWCS-endorsed candidate names and ideas "out there."
- Visit and follow our official Twitter and Facebook accounts and use your virtual voice to amplify our Candidate of the Day (#COTD) and #10Questions features.

Volunteer locally — use your actual voice — and help get them elected (yes, YOU – because you are not powerless.)
- Volunteer with your local campaign office. There are volunteer roles for everyone – campaigns need a wide range of skills for an amazing number of tasks.
- Reach out to local friends, family, and neighbors to tell them about the Blue Wave and how they can get involved, too.
- Make sure you are registered to vote. Help a friend register to vote.
- Use your power – VOTE.
