FFRF Maine will have a table at the Maine Resistance Summit training event they are holding at the Augusta Civic Center on Sun, March 5. The doors open at 8 AM and the training seminars start at 9 AM. There is a lunch break and training will continue after lunch.
The chapter will need volunteers to be at the table before the training starts and during lunch breaks. Go to the link below for more details.
Marilyn and I are going to the workshops on Running a Meeting, The Art of Conversation and Storytelling. It would be nice if some people would go to this free training (donations are encouraged) and contribute what you learned to the chapter.
The other workshops are on: Fundraising, Media Basics, Social Media, Building Coalitions, Phone Banking, Forming a Group, Lobbying Legislatures, Race-Gender & Class, Running for Office, Understanding Messaging, Organizing, Writing Letters to Editors, Direct Action and Unions.
For the next 4 years there will be ample opportunity to resist the current administrations detrimental policies. We know your heart is in the right place and some training will help your efforts be more effective.
Email me if you can go and help out.
