July 30th, 2022 Community Organizing Discussion
Discussion of starting locals, running candidates and building the party.
Steve suggested having a Participate local program that focused on open government encouraged members to get people to attend meetings and write them up or live tweet them.
- Why this needs to be done
- What local government meetings are available
- What gets decided at them
- Meeting Details:
- How to find when/where they are (time and place)
- How to find the agenda and past minutes
- What to do
- How to speak and present yourself so you are listened too, if you want to
- Guidelines for recording public meetings, though they are often recorded and put up at community cable. Easier on-line.
- Where to put your notes
How to guide will be at Participate Local.
Discuss it at the next Pirate News: Projects for the rest of 2022: The Great Thing
