You’ll get answers to these questions:

    Survey researchers studied over 2,000 SBA volunteers. Learn what the researchers found out about us!
  • What works in red states like NC?
    Hear what strategies Elaine Berry, former Alamance Co. Democratic Party Chair, and Montreena Hadley, first Black woman elected to the Mebane City Council, are using to swing NC.
  • Why is recruiting volunteers in red and purple states so powerful? 
    Vicki Levi, a psychiatrist with years of experience in motivational interviewing, will talk about how building relationships can maximize recruitment efforts.
