Alex Kramer of Knock for Democracy

January 26, 2022


On this episode, Nancy speaks with Alex Kramer of Knock for Democracy. Alex is an actor and writer who discovered he had a talent for political organizing after the 2016 election. What started in a living room with a few dozen friends had grown by 2020 to more than 5,000 volunteers who had knocked on countless doors and dialed literally millions of numbers all in the name of, yes, democracy. Alex and Nancy talk about how making the volunteer experience fun keeps people coming back for more; the power of community experience that feels joyous, connected and personal; and bringing back the lost art of civic and civil conversation with our fellow citizens.
