The Organizer's Toolbox: How to Give a Great Political Speech

October 25, 2020

In this training for DSA organizers, we will explore our personal stories together, and discover how they inform and support our political movement. Personal stories are important because they allow us to identify with each other's experiences, motivate us to fight for common aims, and ultimately build solidarity.

Adapted from Marshall Ganz’s “Public Narrative,” this training will challenge you to put aside the logical reasons why we need to win a better world and rather consider emotional & personal reasons. We'll talk about what makes a story compelling and how stories can be important organizing tools that bring others into our movement. Then, we'll each develop and practice our own political speeches together.

Note: While all are welcome, this event is geared towards individuals who are already actively organizing with the Democratic Socialists of America or allied groups.
