Communicating with Voters Across Lines of Difference - SWIM Training Indivisible National

  • Wednesday, April 6th 3 PM. Are you planning to talk to voters at their doors or on the phone this election cycle? If so, congrats! It's really important work, and it makes an impact. As you're gearing up for those conversations, we invite you to join a training about best practices for communicating across lines of difference -in other words, talking respectfully and effectively with voters whether or not you live in their communities, share their identities, or know what influences their voting choices. This training will be practical and approachable while directly addressing key equity and inclusion skills. Hosted by and focused on Michigan Indivisible work. Meeting registration and more information is available through this link.

The Turbulent History of American Monuments Erin L. Thompson with Sarah Mirk Town Hall Seattle

  • Thursday, April 7th 7:30PM, in person and online: In the United States, the issue of what to do with public monuments has been very polarizing. Why do we care so much about these statues? In her book Smashing Statues: The Rise and Fall of America’s Public Monuments, professor of art crime Erin L. Thompson looks at the turbulent history of American monuments and its abundant ironies — including the enslaved man who helped make the Statue of Freedom that tops the United States Capitol. Monuments have come to mean many things to different people, and the battles over them are a tangle of aesthetic, legal, political, and social issues. Click here to go to the event page.
