One thing I love about working with groups around the country is seeing the ways in which they customize a message to best reach different audiences. Whether it’s developing book group questions or events for students (both of which we have suggestions for our on Community Resource Center) the community organizers always know best how to approach each group. As one leader in Akron, Ohio said to Ellen Goodman and me on a trip last year, “don’t worry, we’ll Akronize it.”
That’s the angle we’re taking on next week’s community call. We’ll hear from Common Practice, creators of the My Gift of Grace card game, about their shift toward movement building and addressing avoided conversations. We’ll get to learn about how they work with different populations, and we highly recommend you view their Nazea videos before the call. Finally, we’ll also hear from Conversations of a Lifetime in Cincinnati, Ohio about their public engagement and social media campaign this summer (check out #ThingsYouShouldntWaitToSay on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter or watch this video to see more).
We all know the importance of having the conversation – and we’re always excited to learn about new ways of engaging people to have it. There is no one size fits all approach. Join us on Wednesday, September 16th at 3 pm ET to learn more!
