New Here? Get Trained & Ready to Text/Call!

Welcome to Resistance Labs! We do all sorts of texting for progressive organizations and candidates, such as GOTV, vote by mail, voter registration, and invites to events and town halls.

For the Georgia Runoff elections we’re also phoning folks who respond positively to our texts!

Before you get started texting or calling, please take one of our training options. For phone calls we have live trainings or a video. For texting we have live Saturday trainings, three quick videos, or a self-paced slideshow, whichever works best for you!
