                     Skill Building Workshop for Activists
Offered by changeishappening!
Sunday, March 5th  from 2-4 pm.
Casa Community Center on the La Posada Campus

Amplify your voice with Facebook, Twitter and Request to Speak. Learn new skills in an “open laboratory” setting. Please read this description carefully to be sure this workshop is right for you.

Facebook and Twitter:  This workshop is for people already signed up on one or both of these platforms. Small group and/or 1:1 tutoring and coaching will follow short presentations by people telling how they use Facebook and Twitter. The goal is to assist beginners and active users. Please come if you have just signed up for Facebook or Twitter, but don’t know what to do next. Also come if you already use these platforms, but want new ideas for social activist use.

Request to Speak (RTS): This is a way to express opinions and make comments on pending Arizona legislation. We’ll describe the process and share ways of tracking bills and their progress. Bring some numbers for House or Senate bills that you are tracking. Please sign up for RTS using the White Hats method below. 

Please bring your phones, laptops and tablets to the workshop. There is free Wi-Fi at Casa Community Center. If you’re not ready to sign on to these platforms, you’re welcome to come and learn, but please know the tutoring and coaching is for participants who are signed up.

How to Sign Up for Request to Speak (RTS): The White Hats, young activists in Phoenix, will sign us up. Send your name (as written on your voter registration) and email address to rtsaz2017@gmail.com. A volunteer will enter your name into one of the House or Senate kiosks. You’ll get email confirmation, a temporary password and further instructions. Our test case got a response within 24 hours.

If possible RSVP to this program to berriebrae@aol.com or planetjurs@mac.com. Please send other questions about the workshop as well and let them know how the RTS sign up went.
