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

February 16, 2021

It’s a new year - time to learn a new organizing skill! Join us for another iteration of the Organizer’s Toolbox, where we introduce and practice specific, tangible skills for DSA organizers that you can put to use!

**Note: Please try to arrive at this training on time and plan to stay for the whole training. This is a very interactive training and works best when the attendees are fully engaged and committed to learning from each other in this process.

In this training for DSA organizers, we will explore our personal stories together, and discover how they can become important tools that motivate and inspire others. 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. We’ll examine how other leaders on the left use personal stories to motivate the masses to take action and then spend time crafting our own.

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.

Suggested reading and watching material: (it’s quick!)
