    September 30, 2018 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
    Murphy-Wilmot Branch Library

    Tucson, AZ 85711

    “We will cover selected modules focused on how to tell your personal story, persuasion conversations, voter turnout best practices, and digital organizing.

    Sharing your personal story helps volunteers get grounded in why they come to this work and how to effectively communicate that to others in order to build empathy and trust.

    Persuasion conversations will discuss why persuasion conversations with voters are so necessary and review the persuasion framework that one can use while on the doors or on the phones.

    GOTV conversations will share best practices with turnout conversations — in the final days leading up to the election or campaign deadline — with helpful scenarios that participants will likely encounter at the doors or on the phones.

    Digital organizing can amplify your voice and message to a wider audience online and share the story of what we do to a wider audience.

    If you do any work for a cause, campaign or candidate please join us and that includes all you 501c3 and 501c4 groups as well.

    Yes, we will have facilitation in Spanish via an OFA Trainer ~

    Free and open to the public.

    Please RSVP directly to
