There will be two shifts, the first starting at 12 pm and the second at 2:30 pm.

What is EVP? The Environmental Voter Project is a new, powerful concept that (1) uses big-data analytics to identify inactive environmentalists and then (2) applies cutting-edge behavioral science to turn them into more consistent voters. Right now, less than 50% of environmentalists vote, which means that politicians do not need to prioritize the environment. Using a new generation of Get-Out-The-Vote techniques, we are dramatically increasing voter turnout while precisely measuring our impact. EVP is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization that aims to fundamentally change the electorate to so that policy makers respond accordingly. Our steady, movement-building approach is using proven techniques to bring environmental voter turnout to a tipping point of overwhelming demand for progressive environmental policies.
