Community building

BRATTLEBORO "Birddogging 101" hosted by Rights & Democracy NH and Rights & Democracy VT: Birddogging 101 is a participatory and interactive training that will give you the skills and confidence to talk to presidential candidates and elected officials about the issues facing our communities. What is birddogging? It simply means seeking out elected officials and candidates and pushing them for clear answers on important questions. When we do this, we can influence their positions as well as the public's perception. We've got so many opportunities to get up close and personal with 2020 candidates in New Hampshire this year, and birddogging is a fun and high-profile way to take advantage of that. It also helps advance our campaigns for social, economic and political justice. 6 - 8 p.m. (Canal St. entrance). Food and drink provided. Free. Brattleboro Food Co-op Community Room, 7 Canal St. Information: 802-246-2821; Click to e-mail for more information.
