Western PA Rural Electoral Program Kickoff

Start: June 16, 201810:30 AM

End: June 16, 2018 5:00 PM

The day-long training on June 16th is an exciting opportunity to connect with leaders of rural resistance organizations from across Western PA as we begin to put together our plan to win in 2018! As you know, we have a lot of important work to do this year to re-elect the Governor and make progress on flipping seats to turn our state blue, and this day together will be the first step in that process.

We look forward to covering a series of topics throughout the course of the day that will set us all up to build bigger and more powerful organizations that are able to create the political change we want in our communities. The day will start with a chance to get to know each other and our shared vision for change: what it means to organize in this populist moment and how we're going to build our organizations. Then we'll dig into the nuts and bolts of organizing including how to recruit more people to join us in this work and how to move people to take action. We'll finally end with time to dig in on our plan for the year and next steps that we'll take together.

Our trainers for the day will be Lisa Frank, the Vice President for Strategic Campaigns with SEIU Healthcare PA and Alex Wallach Hanson from Pennsylvania United. You may recognize Alex and Lisa from the training they did at our last PA Together convening and we're excited to get to work with them again.

Food will be provided for the day, all you need to do is bring yourself and be ready to get to work together! We may also go out for a meal and drinks after the training so please let us know if that's something you're interested in.
