This is a crucial election and your active participation can make a difference. In this workshop you will learn how to move someone who is unsure about voting—or undecided about who to vote for—by listening and sharing your experience.
Completing the workshop will leave you ready to canvass your neighbors on a local issue or be able to win your apathetic friend or cousins over to voting.
The workshop is being led by Olivia Chow, founder of the Institute for Change Leaders, and presented in partnership with the Broadbent Institute. Certificates will be presented to participants.
WHAT: How To Talk To Undecided Friends and Voters
WHEN: Wednesday, September 8, 2021 from 4:00 - 6:00 pm ET

Why is canvassing important?
Canvassing is the most powerful tool a campaign has.
Face-to-face contact, and specifically neighbour-to-neighbour contact, is the most effective form of direct outreach. Contact at the door by somebody from the community can have twice the impact of contact through the phones or contact from an outsider.
Successful grassroots campaigns depend upon the ability to share a campaign’s message through face-to-face discussion with members of the community, and with neighbours talking to neighbours. This is one of the most valuable ways to collect data and persuade people to join the campaign.
