Authentic conversations with voters - volunteer training & BBQ

Are you new to political campaigning, or want to learn new techniques for having impactful, authentic conversations with votersĀ  - be it at their doors, over the phone, or in your day-to-day life?

Then you'll want to join us on August 18th for this interactive workshop, which will be followed by a BBQ!

This workshop will be hosted by Fredericton South Campaign Manager Jordan Bober and Ruth Breen, a postal worker with many years of union organizing experience. Between the two of them, they have knocked on many thousands of doors and trained hundreds of people in the art of impactful conversations with voters. They are excited to share the insights they've picked up along the way.

During this workshop, we will:

  • Learn why talking to voters is a listening more than a talking art;
  • Learn how to form rapport with a perfect stranger, and how that influences how people vote;
  • Learn to find our own authentic voices when talking to voters about politics;
  • Practice our techniques through role-playing and live exercises.

Our goal is for you to leave this workshop feeling:

  • Confident about opening authentic conversations with voters;
  • Excited about all the great conversations you'll be having this election, and how it will move the Green movement forward in New Brunswick.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Local Self-Reliance

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Active Citizenship

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
