Canvassing for clean energy

Not sure what compelled me to pick up a clipboard on Saturday and help canvass for Race to Replace. I tried out, for about an hour or so, being that annoying person on the street trying to solicit you for some cause or another. Persistence, knowledge of the issue, and an approachable smile are key to reeling people in to talk to you. It was a good experience — continuing to teach me the flip side of online organizing.
