Speaking at Actions: How to Hype a Crowd

Strategy and policy briefs can change minds. But if we wanna bring millions of people into the streets, and inspire our generation to envision and demand a Green New Deal, we need stories that can Wake Up people’s red-thumping hearts. In this session we’re diving into basic action narratives to ground ourselves and share our vision with others: “Here’s why we’re showing up, and you should join.” As we learn the big narratives, we’ll fill in the gaps with our own stories. When you leave this class you’ll be able to draft out your action’s narrative, equipped with the beginning of an action speech to fit it.
