September 26, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
With Election Day bearing down on us now, we are all organizing like our lives depend on the outcome – and in fact our lives MAY depend on the outcome. In these final weeks before Election Day, we need to be clear about what to do, where to put our energy, what to avoid, and how to be most effective. Join veteran activists and organizers Kristen and Sam for a high powered, highly interactive, high stakes workshop! Come ready to learn a lot, share a lot, and be inspired, supported, and refueled. You will leave knowing what next steps to take as we move toward a historic election where so much hangs in the balance.
