Integrated Voter Engagement Training Series in July
Fecha de inicio:
Brand new to Integrated Voter Engagement (IVE)?
Need to get down the basics of IVE?
Then this training series is for you and your local team!
Integrated Voter Engagement is a strategy that helps build an organization’s capacity to engage historically underrepresented populations in policy, systems change, and the democratic process within and beyond election cycles. A strong IVE strategy promotes base-building, leadership development (especially among impacted people groups), winning issue campaigns, relational civic engagement, and strategic partnerships.
The Gamaliel IVE Strategy Table is hosting a series of four IVE trainings on Thursday evenings, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. CT (7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT) in July. Descriptions are provided below. While all sessions are connected to one another, you are not required to register for the full series though we believe you will gain more from the trainings if you do.
