Like a lot of volunteers, the last four years of progress has meant something tangible for Richard and his family. Richard decided to get involved—and now he’s a Neighborhood Team Leader who runs an online field office through Dashboard.
A few weeks ago, Richard received an email from the campaign about a new site called "Dashboard,” the campaign’s online field office. He decided to take the next step and sign up.
"I've been a supporter of President Obama for years, but for some reason that email is what got me involved with the campaign."
After signing up, Richard got connected with a neighborhood team in his community, and that team's volunteer leader, Karen, contacted him. Karen invited Richard to an event and soon Richard became one of the team's volunteers.
After spending a few weeks registering voters and organizing his community, Richard became a neighborhood team leader and now uses Dashboard to organize his own team.
“What I like about Dashboard is that it puts all the volunteers on the same page even if we can't be in the same physical space every day. It helps us be more focused and effective so we can support President Obama to the best of our abilities.
“My aunt passed away 10 years ago, but if she had health care I think she'd be alive today. Her name was Victoria, she had cancer, and even though she had a good job as an executive secretary, she got kicked off her insurance. Today, the Affordable Care Act stops the worst kind of health insurance abuse. That's why I am getting involved, in honor of my aunt, to make sure we stand up for common-sense reform.”
