Tonight, Wednesday, at 7:30 PM PT register here.

A course description:
Activism 101 is a free, one-hour webinar for people of varying levels of experience with activism and/or political action. It’s for folks who’ve never helped win *any* election, and for those who merely need a refresher on what actions work best. It’s a survey course with one goal: to give those who are frightened and anxious about the state of our country simple, bite-sized actions they can take to help hold the House, expand the Senate, win down-ballot races, and basically make good things happen in November and beyond.
In the workshop I will go over several forms of “entry-level” actions, like postcarding, letter writing, text and friend banking, micro-fundraising, making SMART donations, phonebanking, and canvassing. I’ll also address some of the fears that keep us from doing these things and explain why each and every person’s actions DO matter. Finally, I’ll give each participant a google doc packed with resources and opportunities to volunteer. The idea is for each participant to leave feeling empowered and clear on at least one small thing they can—and will!—do to help us win in November.
I know this isn’t specifically NC-related, but this workshop will give you lots of tools to use in your North Carolina volunteering. So come if you can!
