Join us for the weekly New Haven Canvass. It's the perfect place to start doing Housing Justice work. No experience needed. We will be knocking doors and talking to tenants of Ocean properties.
We launch at 1 pm from Monitor Square and will canvass until 3pm. After that, you can join us for a social hour at Koffee? on Audubon St. Street parking is easy to find at both locations.
Bring a mask and dress for the weather.
