Profs & Pints Workshop: Grassroots Organizing
October 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0$30
Profs and Pints Workshops presents, “Grassroots Organizing, Strategies, Tools, and Techniques,” with Joshua Habursky, adjunct professor of strategic communication at West Virginia University and founder of the Grassroots Professional Network.
How are movements created? Why do people come together to support social and political goals? With important elections coming up, how can you make a difference? Learn the basic reasoning and techniques behind grassroots organizing and activism from Joshua Habursky, founder and chairman of the Grassroots Professional Network, an organization with more than 15,000 advocacy, grassroots, and lobbying professionals as members.
Professor Habursky, whose organization is devoted to promoting best practices in grassroots advocacy, will teach you basic organizing techniques, how to amplify a grassroots message, and how to recruit, retain, and mobilize activists for any cause, organization, or movement. Participants will leave this session with a better understanding of the intersection of government relations and communications and how average citizens can have an impact on public policy outcomes.
Professor Habursky has led award-winning grassroots programs for three national associations and recruited a million advocates. He teaches courses on strategic communications and event promotion at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media.
The event takes place in the event room of the downstairs pub. Tickets are $30 and must be purchased in advance at https://grassroots3.brownpapertickets.com/ .
