As we kick off the midterms, NCID is excited to present a program on how to apply lessons learned in connecting with voters to get out the vote with our personals stories and grassroots connections with voters. What works, what doesn’t? What’s really our message and how do we listen first to understand? Learn successes from primaries, through campaign leads and canvassers, how voters respond and how to apply that learning to CD1. Well hear from great speakers on finding common ground, such as Amanda Wilcox who will contribute to tips on how to relate to people with different ideologies, towards common needs, in her case such as communicating about gun safety and reform. And also, how to talk in a common language about themes inherent in our system, no matter what side of the fence you’re on, like the influence of money in our elections and politics.
This should be a fun, light hearted, role-playing workshop to learn tips and practice human connection, to remind ourselves of the importance of our words. And not to push solutions on others, or speak in our own bubble, but find ways to see what is common in our needs, and connect in our actions, words and body language.
Bottom line – we need to begin to trust, and bond as Americans and Californians, to make lasting change.
