You Aren’t Dangerous until You Can Speak Powerfully: Using Storytelling and ‘Laser Talks’ to Be an Effective Advocate

Sunday, Mar 23, 2014, 3:15 pm

Telling your own story and using stories to make your causes “real” is key to being an effective advocate. This workshop empowers participants to speak effectively about social justice issues to politicians, the media, and peers by reviewing what makes an effective “public narrative”. Then, we’ll do a train-the-trainer session on how to develop powerful speaking skills by creating a “laser talk” to advocate on an issue.
