Power Building Webinar Series Part 1 - Information Gathering 06/22/2021

SUMMARY:

Part 1 of the three-part Power Building Webinar Series focused on the power of ID'ing and information gathering. Building on the existing skills organizers bring to the table, this webinar went in-depth on what it takes to run a more effective and compelling campaign, especially as many groups gear up for a big election year in 2022. 

Organizers hoping to strengthen their advocacy and power building skills to create a stronger GOTV operation were encouraged to attend.
