Yesterday I met local activists at an OFA training session. Lots of great ideas about engaging effectively in the political process were discussed. The website OFA.US is an excellent place to get information on how you can participate in this year's elections.
Take-aways included how to organize an event, best practices for social media, and communication skills. My favorite idea they shared is their "I will vote!" campaign which encourages people to think about why they should vote, and then commit to vote.
Think about the statement "I will vote because" and then fill in the blank.
One reason might be to support my candidacy.
