3rd Floor Conference Room

Please join us for a Building Movement Detroit workshop, Strategies for Effective Organizing with Sean Thomas-Breitfeld on Wednesday, November 28 from 1-4pm in the 3rd Floor Conference Room of Hannan House, 4750 Woodward Ave.

Politics is often described as a battle for hearts and minds. In this workshop, we will discuss the centrality of values and framing to shaping the political discussions about the issues we care about. We will explore how values and frames connect to support conservative policies. And we will begin to surface alternative values and frames that progressives can use to challenge dominant power in Detroit.
