Covid Safety Statement

The La Defensa team is closely tracking the rise of COVID cases in LA County. We are committed to making our literature drops as safe as possible for all who participate in this important work.

We encourage all volunteers to take a COVID test before joining a community canvass, and to stay home if the test is positive. Our staff will be taking COVID tests before each canvass to ensure negative results.

We encourage social distancing when in-person, and encourage community members to stay home if you are feeling under the weather, even if you have received a negative test result.

We will provide all volunteers with personal protective equipment (KN95 masks), and we encourage everyone to bring their own, as well!

We will continue to monitor COVID numbers in LA County. If safe in-person voter outreach stops being possible, we will move to all-virtual Get Out the Vote work.

We look forward to staying safe while getting out the vote with you!
