Canvassing Workshop

26 Apr

WHAT: Want to reach our to your neighbours about social change? Want to deepen the community presence of your political group? Or just want to get better at talking to strangers about politics?

Join for a workshop on door-to-door canvassing and talking to people about politics. This open workshop is for community groups, activists, and organizers who want to get better at talking to people about their political ideas, to mobilize neighbourhoods, change public opinion, raise money, and so on.

WHO: Special guest facilitator Harry Pilford, a professional environmental canvasser with years of experience. He’ll give us tips on how to craft an effective brief message and strike up a rapport with strangers.

The two-hour workshop will also include opportunities to practice your skills in a friendly environment, and get feedback if you wish.

Save a spot by sending a message to khatija(at)riseup.net. (Please register by April 30 to ensure we have a large enough venue for everyone.)

WHERE: TBA

WHEN: Thursday, May 7th 7pm-9pm

Childcare will be available. RSVPs for childcare are not needed but are welcome. For accessibility, childcare or other needs and questions, please also email khatija(at)riseup.net
