This is a training session for anyone who wants to learn or strengthen their organizing skills!
We are the NoVA DSA Tenant Organizing group, and during our work on the doors during canvassing we have what we call a 15 minute organizing conversation: it’s a shortened version of an hour-long one-on-one organizing conversation that is the bread and butter of our organizing model.
The goal of this training is to teach canvassers how to have deeper, more effective conversations in a short time by asking open ended questions and doing more listening than talking! But it doesn’t only apply to tenant organizing--the same principles can be used when talking to people at a farmers market about Medicare for All or at a brake light clinic about policing.
The training helps you ask questions that get the the community member thinking about the issues they are experiencing, laying the blame on the landlord/politicians/power structures at the root of their issues, and connecting their experience to your fight.
If you are interested in learning and practicing how to have effective organizing conversations, please join us!
