Bernie Sanders style activist training in Glasgow

Whether we have 1 year or 5 before the next general election we need to be having conversations with our neighbours, teachers, nurses and friends about the Labour Party’s vision for society. Understanding how people think about politics, how to deal with difficult conversations and a policy workshop on key Labour Party policy, this participatory session provides people with a simple framework for communicating political ideas with people who may have very different preconceptions and background knowledge.

The training is suitable for both new and experienced activists. It will cover the basics of door knocking, how to find common ground with voters, linking policy to the issues that matter to people, and how to answer challenging questions. The session will be very active and participatory, while also providing practical advice and materials to use when campaigning.

Following the training session we will be putting our new skills straight into action with a 1 hour door knocking session in Levenshulme. 

We hope you can join us.
