This teleconference / webinar is designed especially for Greens who are running for local office as well as those considering a run in the near future. This call will cover outreach to special constituencies, which will be different depending on your district but can include: youth, people of color, LGBT folks, labor, etc.
During this conference, we will discuss outreach to special constituencies, including
- Media and communications efforts
- Targeting and voter turn-out strategies
- Deep engagement, not tokenism
- Green policy positions that speak to different key constituencies
This webinar will be facilitated by Karen Kubby and Darryl! Moch.
Karen recently facilitated a special day-long Campaign School at the Annual Meeting in Iowa City. Karen Kubby is a social activist and national third-party political workshop speaker who served 11 years (1989-00) as Iowa City council member, and directed Emma Goldman Clinic (1999-08). Co-owner with her sister, Laurel, of Dawn’s Hide & Bead Away, she teaches, creates, and sells pottery, craftwork and jewelry. Her impact on local political life has mushroomed, especially “green” and “progressive” causes. After two unsuccessful candidacies, her election to city council brought ascendency of her voice for socialism and liberalism locally and beyond.
