After-lunch course: Advocacy in a Polarized World with Peter Bromberg

May 30 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm

How can we effectively communicate with all decision-makers, and stakeholders about the important work happening at your library regardless of their political beliefs? In this session you will learn the principles of “The Three Languages” of politics, and how to apply them when communicating with people from across the political spectrum. We will build upon these principles and learn how to effectively use data, stories, and research to craft compelling, resonant messages.

Please join us Thursday May 30th, 1:30 – 2:30 PM over Zoom; this presentation will be recorded.
