Phonebanking for Bera
Nell Ranta phonebanked for Ami Bera in 2010.
- I have been phone-banking for Dr. Bera's campaign, and it's really an educational experience. Dozens of young people on the phones, out in the precincts, knocking on doors, organizing house parties, reaching hundreds of residents, inviting them to small house gatherings where participants can interact with the candidates. Many young activists have been trained through this experience. This has been a very successful part of his campaign.
