- Agenda -
What does science tell us about how to talk politics with people we disagree with? Joanna Mikulski, an expert in behavior change communications, will lead a fun and interactive workshop designed to help you put the best ideas from research to use when communicating about hot or sensitive topics. She'll draw on lessons from both from her time at the White House Office of Management and Budget and as the managing director of Assemblyfor, a creative communications and strategy agency. You'll walk away with tips and tools relevant for day-to-day activism - whether while making calls to your representatives or debating with your conservative relatives over the holidays.
- Potluck -
Continuing our new tradition, we will be having a potluck! There will be drinks (by donation), so please bring food to share.
As always, we welcome new faces, even if you've never attended a meeting or an event before.
It's not required, but RSVP here to let us know you're coming and please help out by sharing this event on Facebook. Looking forward to seeing you there!
One year after waking up to the shock that remains an unavoidable part of our lives, we want to come together and remember what we are fighting for, and what is at stake. In Germany, November 9th is often referred to as "Schicksalstag", with momentous events taking place throughout history on that date. This November 9th, we also want to remember that the fate of the United States and the world has not been decided by last year's election. We are the difference, which we have already proven, and will not stop proving going forward.
More details about this event, and others on the weekends before and after, will be announced soon.
It's been a year since the election: where have we been able to resist Trump, which dangerous policies has he been able to enact, what can we learn from the past year? Join us for important questions like these at our November Cologne meeting.
