Citizen Action has a plan to harness the historic energy around 'The Resistance' to create lasting progressive power in Wisconsin. This training acts as the first step in that plan, giving you the knowledge and tools you need to get started.
For the first half, we will focus on political education. It would be a mistake to take on the 2018 elections without a deeper understanding of what we are up against and what it will take to truly win back power. Our 2018 “Rise Up” Progressive Platform serves as a roadmap for our progressive vision. We will review what is in it and explain why it is important to demand bold reform.
For the second half, we will focus on our campaign plan and specific training. We will give an overview of the electoral landscape in Wisconsin as well as Citizen Action’s approach to it. You will learn how to use the Relational Voter Program, a key part of our plan. We will then train you on communicating about the issues, our organizing co-ops, etc. and give you an opportunity to practice.
Please be sure to:
- RSVP as the event has limited capacity
- If you have one, bring a laptop or tablet
- Arrive on time and plan to stay for the full two hours
- Invite fellow co-op members or people who would join the co-op
We will host this training on several different dates, so if you can't make it to this date, please check out the Event page at CitizenActionWI.org for other dates.
