We are preparing to send Democrats to DC and Harrisburg in 2022. Join us to hone your skills on various topics throughout January and beyond.
First, it will be critical to talk to our voters at their doors. Join us in person or on Zoom on the first Thursday of every month at the office or via Zoom with our resident expert Erin K. as she shares her experience and enthusiasm for talking to voters at our Canvassing 101 training. Sign up on Mobilize to RSVP and receive the address and Zoom link.
Next, on Thursday, January 13, in person or on Zoom, join local experts in communication Dave and Erin Ninehouser of hearyourselfthink.org for Messinging Against Misinformation for the Midterms. Democracy is threatened by disinformation pumped out 24/7 by Fox “news,” Facebook, and talk radio. Getting to the root of how demagogues manipulate minds, attitudes, and emotions helps us expose their tactics and craft messages that reconnect with values of the common good, truth, and decency. When we resolve to fight mind pollution one conversation at a time, we can make a big difference. Sign up on Mobilize to RSVP and receive the address and Zoom link.
Then, on Thursday, January 20, join us on Zoom to learn how Relationships Can be your Superpower! Lara Putnam, professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh and expert on grassroots organizing, will join us to explain what social science tells us about political persuasion and how we can apply it to our work. Sign up on Mobilize to RSVP to receive the Zoom link.
Finally, we wrap up January on Thursday, January 27, with Alicia’s Secrets to Social Media. Alicia is the Chair of our Communications Committee and will share tips to optimize your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Sign up on Mobilize to RSVP to receive the address and Zoom link.
