Tom Jeffrey is a former Venture for America (VFA) fellow and current Yang campaign volunteer. We talk to Tom about his experience working in prison reform and working with VFA.
Tom also wants to encourage everyone with time to phone bank for the Yang Campaign.
"Every phone call made to an early state voter impacts Andrew's chances of winning the nomination. They increase his poll numbers, since many pollsters still largely use landlines. They increase his awareness, especially in rural areas with limited internet access. They help identify which voters are most or least likely to engage with the campaign moving forward. Every call counts.
Join Yang Gang from across the nation on Wednesday, August 21, from 6:30pm-7:30pm EST and make calls to South Carolina voters. Post pictures and videos under #CouchBanking4Yang to show the strength of the Yang Gang. From your friends in SC, thank you!"
