How to Persuade:“The Persuaders” book discussion

a NWSOFA Book Club book club discussion

The Persuaders:

At the Front Lines of the Fight for Hearts, Minds, and Democracy immerses readers in the world of dedicated activists and organizers spanning the nation, all driven by the common goal of expanding the progressive movement without compromising our principles or drifting toward the center. Anand Giridharadas delves deep into the art of addressing threats and injustices while extending a hand to those who may not yet share our views, but potentially could in the future.

The Powering Progress book club series

is being initiated across the country by Indivisible National. Their goals in doing this work include promoting an understanding of the value of an active and inclusive government, fighting back against the Right’s divide and conquer strategy, and supporting Indivisibles in becoming strong messengers to persuadable audiences.

In the book “The Persuaders”, ~ the author Anand Giridharadas writes brilliantly about how leaders and everyday Citizen’s are working to change minds, bridge divisions and fight for democracy – through communicating effectively – hear their stories! a perfect book for our times.

Everyone we speak to, whether neighbor, friend, community member or family, carries a slightly different set of values and expectations. In organizing conversations, it’s up to us to listen well and make strategic, thoughtful assessments of how to move our goals forward by taking into account the other person’s responses.

This event continues the discussion of the ideas presented in Anand Giridharadas book, The Persuaders- At the Front Lines of the Fight for Hearts, Minds, and Democracy

“Political Social Media Messaging: How to Do It Yourself

AND Borrow From The Best”

In these times, progressive activist groups need to learn how to effectively get our messages heard, and fight through the misinformation and disinformation. And to make sure that those messages are seen, there need to be graphics that pop.

We will hear Candace Davis from Truth Brigade Illinois talk about effective messaging. And Bill Davis from NWSOFA Indivisible will show us how to find graphics that are accessible without having to be created.
