UUANI VoteLove Trainings

As I am sure you all suspect the in-person training on April 17th in Deep Canvassing has been canceled. The GREAT news is that we are going to be able to offer this same content ON-LINE. 


The time has come to go beyond being the people who show up so wonderfully in our yellow shirts to being people who engage our neighbors in the democratic process around what’s at stake in terms of worth and dignity, justice and equity, interdependence and compassion. To engage this work we have ONLINE learning in a technique called Deep Canvassing with  Olivia Chow, who founded the Institute for Change Leaders (ICL). 

This education will be available anyone in the region who can join us. Deep canvassing is about having door-to-door, one-to-one conversations, with people in your community about the issues that matter to you. This concept embodies the spirit of Vote Love and makes possible the opportunities that transform our relationships and communities.  During this online seminar you will: Develop skills to tell your story and motivate others, and learn and practice deep canvassing to move voters.  The curriculum is based on the teachings of Harvard University Professor Marshall Ganz, an advisor to President Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign and veteran of SNCC and United Farm Worker campaigns.
