What is it?

Okay… I know we’ve been saying “slacktivism” a lot. 

Slacktivism: /ˈslæktɪvɪzəm/
the practice of supporting a political or social cause by means such as social media or online petitions, characterized as involving very little effort or commitment.
(Oxford Languages and Google)

With our competition, we want to use slacktivism for good ,
for our campaign and our communities across the country!

Registered teams will have a series of opportunities that include boosting campaign social media posts, friend-to-friend texting, phonebanking, etc. to earn points in order to win the competition. All opportunities will include activities that you and your team members can do from the comfort of your couch! Easy, right?

Throughout the competition, there will be special tasks, such as posing with your “I voted” sticker (once voting begins) and additional dialer sessions. Teams will be able to track themselves on a leaderboard to keep up with how many points they have.
