Learn More About Blueprint
Blueprint participants will plan and execute community building and service projects to tackle their neighborhood’s everyday needs and build a strong, local coalition ahead of local and statewide elections. If you’re ready to start a Blueprint team in your city or town, click here to connect with a member of the MassDems staff.
To run a successful statewide grassroots organizing program, we’ll need strategic partners at all levels. Below are short descriptions of the Blueprint roles.
As local activists, Team leads are the ones who coordinate teammates to complete community building or service projects in their town or city. Team leads can choose to plan their own action or support the work of another organization that embodies Democratic values. The MassDems will work with Team leads throughout the planning process to develop a recruitment strategy, connect Team leads with local leaders or spokespeople, or provide event templates and resources. Team leads work closely with teammates to recruit for and execute these events and are the primary point of contact between the local team and the MassDems staff. Already a Team Lead?

Teammates are the boots on the ground in every municipality. Led by Captains, teammates help recruit for and execute service events. After the Captain chooses an action, teammates get to work inviting folks to the event! Monthly Blueprint Bootcamps give teammates the tools to mobilize their friends, family, and neighbors by thinking relationally about their outreach. The goal of Blueprint isn’t for teammates to just complete tasks or make calls, it’s to help them build relationships with voters and volunteers that last through 2023 and beyond.
You might not be able to join the program as a Captain or a teammate–we still need you involved!
