Feeling overwhelmed by our political system? Want to create change but not sure how to organize? Interested in advocating for the issues that matter to you, but not sure how to do it effectively? Or maybe you just want some new tactics for your activist tool box? Girl, we got you.
You're invited to The Broad Room's next Training:
BIRDDOGGING 101: Hard Skills to Fight for Real Change
Thursday, February 28th from 7:00pm-8:30pm
(We'll start right at 7:00, so don't be late, ladies!)
227 W 17th Street, 6th floor (between 7th & 8th Ave)
This year, the Broad Room is getting BATTLE READY - preparing women across the city with everything they need to handle the impending political madness of 2020.
For our next training, we've enlisted the amazing Jennifer Flynn Walker to give our Broads a tactical training on how to get *real* commitments from candidates for office and elected officials.
What is birddogging? Good question! Remember when two women confronted Senator Flake in an elevator during the Kavanaugh hearings, demanding accountability for his vote? That's birddogging. If you have ever attended a school committee meeting, a town meeting, or a political event and spoken up, then you already have some birddogging experience.
We'll teach you the basics of birddogging and how to fight for what you care about. You don't want to miss it!
ABOUT OUR TRAINER: Jennifer Flynn Walker directs the Mobilization and Advocacy program at The Center for Popular Democracy. She's responsible for federal healthcare, tax policy, and advocacy, and also works to develop new ways to mobilize affiliates in federal campaigns. Jennifer's been the recipient of Columbia University's Human Rights Advocates Training Fellowship, the Union Square Award, the Robert Wood Johnson Community Health Leadership Award, and received a NYC Council proclamation in 2016 for her leadership on LGBT issues.
We can't wait to see you! *RSVP BELOW!* Spaces are limited!
