Telephone Town Halls 

Simultaneously Connecting Thousands of People 

At Stones’ Phones, we believe in the power of conversation. Telephone Town Halls simultaneously connect thousands of people with their elected officials or organization leaders from the comfort of their own homes. Telephone Town Halls allow voters to have a conversation with their elected officials in a controlled environment, to ask a question after being screened, to voice their opinion via push button polls. Telephone Town Halls bring the speakers right into the voters homes.

Telephone Town Halls meld a traditional form of communication – the phone – with a 21st century web interface to create an interactive town hall meeting. They have emerged as one of the most effective tools available to directly connect with thousands of people at once. Telephone Town Halls allow participants to interact with a speaker from the comfort of their homes or offices. The process starts the day before the event with an automated pre-call recorded by you or your organization to participants announcing the event. The day of the event, invitees receive another recorded message that welcomes them to the event and asks them to simply stay on the line to join. This outbound invite to participants is ten times more effective at increasing participation than a conference call where callers must remember to dial into the event. Utilizing this technology, we can bring thousands of people together on the call in a matter of seconds. Once on the Telephone Town Hall, participants can fully engage with the event by using their phone’s keypad to respond to poll questions and get in line to ask a question live on the air. This provides valuable data and feedback.

  • BlackPAC Manual Texting
    The 2018 midterms were the first big chance for Democrats to push back against the Trump Administration. In Georgia, Democrats had landed a dream congressional candidate, Lucy McBath: an outspoken Black woman whose son was killed by a white man who objected to loud music he was playing with friends in a car. BlackPAC wanted to dramatically increase enthusiasm and turnout from Black voters in her district. We put together a program with four rounds of texts to all Black voters in the district. These texts ranged from encouragement to affect change to info on how to find a polling location. These were sent during the early voting period and the lead up to the general election. For the first time since the 1970s, a Democrat won the district, and did so by a mere 3,000 votes. Proving that every vote, and every text, matters.
  • George Gascón for L.A. District Attorney
    With George Gascón’s announcement to run for Los Angeles District Attorney, Stones’ Phones developed a targeted text and auto-call program to get him through the 2019 primary. We started the outreach ahead of the primary by using our versatile text capabilities to message Democrats and likely supporters local event invitations, links to a persuasive video profile piece, and notifications on local community leaders’ endorsements. With each text message sent, we were able to track RSVPs, link clicks, as well as those with positive responses throughout the process.
