Tools to Shift the Country


!!! ALERT:  We are hosting a series of calls to help take action to counter coronavirus, and to create Community Coronavirus Coalitions.  Register for all Shift the Country calls to counter coronavirus on Eventbrite.  This is now the primary core Shift the Country tool, due to the emerging COVID-19 public health emergency.

The "Creating Community Coronovirus Coalitions" tool above IS the main Shift the Country civic engagement tool for countering coronavirus.  More details, ideas, and in-depth discussion for community action with these coalitions will be offered via the same link to Eventbrite.  Corresponding Facebook groups are being established to support this tool + activity as well and will be linked when available.

All other Shift the Country tool production / publication as noted below is halted for the foreseeable future to address the emerging national public health situation.  Our original mission is to create a framework to engage voters to help Democrats win in 2020.  The work to counter the coronavirus helps us engage voters to help us win in 2020 - but more importantly - to help mitigate the damage posed by an emerging pandemic.  We can help Americans navigate this.


This page is intended as a starting point to post tools to help Americans everywhere Shift the Country.  Tools are posted below as blog posts (coming soon), and are also in The Blog (soon) tagged as "Shift the Country - Tools."

  • 71 pages of unpublished tools are outlined or listed in the Proposal to Shift the Country.  These need to be developed into tools people and groups can use.
  • A few tools are also highlighted in published sections, although they alse need to be fully developed.

With financial support, the goal is to get as many tools as possible developed, published, marketed, shared, and otherwise amplified by SPRING 2020... so that people all over the country can use the tools where they live (see above - focus shifted to civic engagement to counter coronovirus for the immediate future).

The best summary of this initiative is here, "Growing Something Like A Phenomenon," as a 2-pg PDF handout or a blog post.
