We will make calls while together on Zoom. Training and coaching will be available for those new to Zoom or to phone banking. Virtual phone banking is fun - we mute everyone, but you can see your fellow callers engaged with voters, we can share experiences via chat, and help is always available via chat or a breakout room with an experienced volunteer.
