Thank you for volunteering to text with Working Families Party!
1. SIGN UP AND CREATE YOUR SLACK ACCOUNT
Our team communicates exclusively through Slack, a team messaging application.
Click JOIN THE TEAM. You will fill out the sign-up form and be automatically directed to create your Slack account. This includes a “handle” or name you choose to interact with the team in “channels” — these are virtual team spaces where you will ask for assignments, get instructions and help from your Moderator and team Guides, and where we share important updates and celebrate victories!
Want to learn more about Slack and how to use it? You can read the getting started guide here or watch the 2 minute video here 👉
