Getting media attention is a goal of most campaigns, but actually talking to reporters can be nerve-wracking. It doesn’t have to be. This workshop will explore they way the media work, how to craft a message that works and how to prepare for an interview. Using interactive role-playing, coaching and practice, participants will learn how to turn every media contact into a chance to advance their movement.
